The TV spots for local candidates have hit the airwaves. Justice Steven Hughes and District Attorney Jaime Esparza have both launched their commercials.
District Attorney Esparza has more money than his opponents and is essentially spending the bulk of it in TV spots. The ad that is running during the evening news time slots features County Commissioner Carlos Leon, County Attorney Jo Ann Bernal and Sheriff Richard Wiles.
Justice Hughes features him in a robe in the ceremonial court room in the courthouse and he's the only voice on the ad.
So far it appears that the spots have only run on English-language stations.
