Daniel Villegas appears to have endorsed Jaime in the runoff election.
Thats right, looks like Villegas was pushing for Barceleau in his bid to become a precinct chair on the eastside against Isela Castoñon-Williams.
Villegas was also in the Nor'Easter Parade recently. Not surprising when you consider that it was sponsored by Mimbela Construction. Only in El Paso does Villegas become a mini celebrity but that is a whole other conversation.
Anywho, back to the endorsement. Jaime Barceleau apparently has the backing of Villegas which is funny because I'm not sure it does anything but lose him votes.
So why the most well-known political plus-one in town would want to get an endorsement from Villegas is something of a head-scratcher.
But then again, why a guy who is only invited places because he's dating Norma Favela is even running for a precinct chair in the Democratic Party is a mystery in the first place. I mean we all know he wants to replace Emma Acosta one day but even he has to know he's not viable.
Especially after he loses a precinct chair race.
