We’re one week out from the start of early voting, and barring anything unexpected the interviews I present this week will be the last ones I do for the primary cycle. I’ll have interviews with two of the Democratic candidates for Ag Commissioner later, but today I’m stepping away from Houston and going all the way to El Paso to visit with Rep. Mary González, who is serving her first term in HD75. I’ll just come out and say that I’m a fan of Rep. González, who won a grassroots and unabashedly progressive campaign in 2012 and quickly made a name for herself as a smart and dedicated fighter of the good fight. I’m hardly her only fan – she was named “Freshman of the Year” by MALC, and she drew many positive profiles for her work during the session. I think she has a great future ahead of her, but first she has another primary to win, as she drew a Democratic opponent. Here’s what we talked about:
You can see all of my interviews as well as finance reports and other information on candidates on my 2014 Election page.
UPDATE: Lone Star Q listened to the interview and transcribed a little bit of it.
