By next week, it will have been a month since Tomatillo announced. A month in which Ordaz has done nothing but “strategically wait”. "Claudia has time!" Yes, and no. Since Ordaz's strategic patience plan, her colleague, Sam Morgan gets arrested for slapping his wife. Now you have elected women in... Continue reading

As of today, House District 76's next representative will be Elisa Tomatillo. Now matter how many times Jaime Abeytia or David K blog how wrong that is, that is what will happen. UNLESS, City Representative Claudia Ordaz runs. You can shit on movidas all you want, but they can only... Continue reading

When the Texas House Speaker referred to some Democrats as "vile" and "pieces of shit", my immediate thought was, "Is he wrong tho?" And that is not even best, or even funniest, part. The funniest part is that nobody really likes Scott Braddock. In light of all of this, consider... Continue reading

Well, get a load of City Representatives Cassandra Hernandez-Not Brown and Alexsandra Annello. They were having none of it regarding their wife-beater colleague, City Representative Sam Morgan. Something about being treated different and what not. Never mind the fact, when it comes to everybody else, whether it be staff, lobbyists,... Continue reading

Your only major daily has not one, but TWO stories about your CongressX, Veronica Escobar. One is about the border wall. Yea, I do not care. The other is kinda interesting. The other is about El Paso's current economy. Per your Escobar: "If we don’t do something to plan for... Continue reading

2021 will be interesting for El Paso. In 2021, you will likely have a new mayor. In 2021, you will likely then have a new city manager. And in 2021, you will likely have a city council that may not be able to get anything done. The crazy part though... Continue reading

Your Democratic County Party Chair, Iliana Holguin, wants to make hay out of the fact there are no women on Commissioners Court. Could Vince Perez counter by identifying as transgendered? Sure, but it is unnecessary and would be offensive. Not that I have problem with the offensiveness of it. So... Continue reading

When Cesar Blanco announced he was running for Texas Senate the media was quick to report that the El Paso Delegation supported Blanco's candidacy. But there was - or better said IS - a problem. Only SOME of the Delegation supports Blanco's candidacy. Noticeably quiet is Lina Ortega and Jose... Continue reading

Let us face it. Cassandra Hernandez will get her seat back. Yes, there is that one douchebag that FORMA is consulting for which implies the money guys in town want that douchebag. But apparently like most young men in their early 20s, reality still has not quite yet smacked him... Continue reading

Norma Chavez should run to take her old House seat back. And if she listens to me, she will win. Hell, I'll pay the filing fee. Not too far-fetched given I donated to her during her congressional race. But first why Norma? She would be the only candidate in the... Continue reading

It appears your Mayor, Dee Margo, is in bad shape. Put aside the fact his opponent just had a Thanksgiving parade named after himself. Apparently from what some have told me, Margo was hospitalized recently. Not sure if it was in the news or not, not that I can find... Continue reading

Bob Moore might be struggling to get his not-for-profit new blog up-and-running. But in the meantime, he still find ways to write glowing pieces about your CongressX, After all he has done for Escobar, you gotta wonder what Mrs. Moore thinks about it. "Honey, not now. I am writing a... Continue reading

There is a legit concern that Dee Margo will lose. It is not unwarranted. Besides the fact Dee is a Republican, there is the fact that he has surrounded himself by people that do him no favors. Whether it is campaign staff or city staff. Apparently they rub people the... Continue reading

Joe Moody reporting to Rick Francis got me thinking about my former employer, Norma Chavez. Back when she served the good people of El Paso, she was ostracized by her own Delegation and Party. Sometimes it was partly on her, but the other times? It was because she was in... Continue reading

Now we know why Joe Moody did NOT run for District Attorney after all. Sorry, but this whole "I’m more effective in Austin" while making part-time pay to provide for a family of four did not make a lot of sense. But now it does. Moody will probably make more... Continue reading

Look, the Senate race may very well be already over should no one else of note throw their hat in the ring. But should Marisa Marquez decide to run for Senate, show your enemy a little more respect. Can she be a bitch? Sure, but how is that different from... Continue reading

Now I know everyone knows that I pitch for Team Marquez, but I know a winner when I see one. She could very well be a contender in the race for Senate. Yes, there is Mary Gonzalez, and Cesar Blanco. And apparently Pickett. But let us just look at the... Continue reading

It's been rumoured for a while. But it is now official. Jose Rodriguez is not running for re-election. Now does everybody line-up behind Cesar Blanco? Does Mary Gonzalez decided to switch races? Whatever it is. I just hope it is not a coronation. Continue reading

To all property tax paying persons of El Paso, you all have some good news finally. Your property appraisals are going to drop and drop fast. Or at least they should Per your hometown hero, Roberto O'Rourke, El Paso will be uninhabitable in eight years. Or so he told America... Continue reading

So Mary IS running for re-election. There goes my hope for a State Representative Holguin. Moving on though... ...did you all see the video with the rest of the delegation did in show of support for Mary? Joe Moody look like he got his ass-kicked with that shiner around his... Continue reading

You already have one Lower Valley race with Iliana Holguin taking on Vincent Perez. But could there be another one on the horizon? Last I checked, your DiputadX Estatal, Mary Gonzalez, has NOT announced that she is running for re-election. And Labor Day is less than a week away. Yes,... Continue reading

It looks like everybody and their grandmother showed up yesterday at Iliana Holguin's campaign kick-off. Now, I know Vincent Perez and his team want to make hay of the fact that Iliana had the local party use her husband's consulting firm. But I got news for Team Vincent. Nobody cares....

I almost feel for your former, or soon-to-be former, City Representative Cassandra Hernandez. When she first arrived on the scene she was married, and had the backing the El Paso's most influential political cabal...only whatever Veronica Escobar said was the limit. Fast forward to now...she is divorced and about to... Continue reading

Why would Iliana Holguin run against Vincent Perez? Because you make $100,000 plus benefits for showing up to work once-a-week. Hell, if you are Carl Robinson, you are making that much and showing up even less. "But she's an attorney!" She's an immigration attorney. And those are a dime a... Continue reading

Not exactly news that your Democratic Party Chair, Iliana Holguin, is running against County Commissioner Vincent Perez. And it is not exactly news that your former County Judge, Veronica Escobar, did not necessarily leave on good terms with Perez. That all being said, I did not think Veronica would want...
