Gallego Campaign Manager Says EP is the "key for Gallego"

“El Paso could hold the key for Gallego.”  – San Antonio Express-News 
Fellow El Pasoan,

Congressman Quico Canseco, who is supposed represent part of El Paso County, has had it out for us since he was elected during the 2010 Tea Party wave.

He's fought for his friends in the banking industry, the lobbyists who pay for his lavish vacations and the political extremists who put him in office. Neither you nor I nor anyone in our community were anywhere on his list of priorities.

But here's the good news - you have a chance to help defeat Canseco and replace him with Pete Gallego, whom the El Paso Times endorsed by saying, "This is a chance for El Paso to have two U.S. representatives with El Paso ties, and with El Paso's needs on their agenda."

Here are four ways you can help:
  • Go vote! Click here to find your early voting poll site
  • Volunteer! Sign up to volunteer to help us make phone calls or knock on doors in El Paso
  • Make a contribution. Any amount you can give will be very much appreciated and put to good use in getting out the vote.
  • Forward this email to a friend.

National media have called this race "one of the fiercest battles for a house seat in the country," and there is a very good chance it will be decided in El Paso.

Having grown up in El Paso, I took it personally when Canseco said car-bombs were going off in El Paso, when they most definitely were not. I was even more offended when I watched him tell a reporter at a debate that his mistake was a “technicality;”and then questioned FBI statistics that rank El Paso among the safest in the country.

Canseco’s comments are not only untrue and outrageous, but they hurt businesses on the border and the economic livelihood of the families in El Paso.

Support Pete Gallego who we can count on to stand with El Paso in Congress.
