Hot Damn! Not only do we have Democrat Nick Lampson poised to take Tom DeLay’s old House seat in November, now Ciro Rodriguez has announced that he will battle Republikkkan Henry Bonilla for the 23rd Congressional District of Texas.
We remember Ciro from his effort earlier this year to defeat Bush-hugging DINO Henry Cuellar in the Democartic primary. Now Ciro will take on Bonilla in a district that the US Court of Appeals made more Hispanic and more Democratic.
Bonilla has a huge fundraising advantage on Ciro, since he is the incumbent and he has known for some time now that he would be in this race while Ciro has just entered the fray. So give Ciro a hand and help us put another Texas Democrat in the House.
