Couple of interesting developments on the endorsement front that I thought were worth mentioning. I was surprised that he results of the Mexican American Democrats (MAD) endorsements when it came to the race involving Barbara Perez. Apparently Perez won the endorsement by only one vote, which is really interesting when you consider that her first major fundraiser was a who's who of El Paso politics.
I happen to be a member of MAD as is my daughter and her friend. We weren't in attendance and did not have the opportunity to cast a vote.
The Mexican American Bar Association also had some interviews and a recommendation from the Executive committee as to who should receive their endorsement. Naomi Gonzalez, who is challenging State Rep Norma Chavez for her seat in the state legislature, is a member of MABA and the immediate past president. Sources in MABA tell me that she did not win the recommendation of the Executive Committee and the recommendation was made for the incumbent, State Rep Norma Chavez.
