James Cargas Recognized by Texpatriate and Dos Centavos
HOUSTON (Mar. 1, 2014) – This week James Cargas received endorsements from two Houston political blogs, Texapatriate and Dos Centavos.
“We have been impressed by the breadth of Mr. Cargas’ support throughout the community. Be it every single endorsing political interest group or a laundry list of public officials, the Cargas campaign would not be fighting its battle alone. Just this morning, prominent legislators such as Sen. Sylvia Garcia, Rep. Alma Allen, Rep. Jessica Farrar and former Councilmember Melissa Noriega declared Mr. Cargas to be the best choice for this office,” Texpatriate’s editors explained.
“I am proud to once again be part of Team Dos Centavos,” Cargas said upon learning of the endorsement.
“Democrats need a serious candidate with a serious background who will focus on those serious issues facing the district. We believe that, between the two candidates, Mr. Cargas is the most adept at being that serious candidate,” Texpatriate continued. Cargas is grateful for Texpatriate’s recognition of his strong efforts to run an issue-based campaign advocating for needs of the City of Houston.
