David Saucedo announced his candidacy for mayor recently and the El Paso Times ran a story on it.
You should click on the story to read more about Mr. Saucedo, but there is also cool video on the Times' website of his campaign announcement. There's a part where he speaks about El Paso's history and apparently there was only one person who clapped.
It reminded me of the scene in Coming to America with Randy Watson & Sexual Chocolate.
You can see his campaign logo. I don't really understand what the symbol is supposed to convey but there was some thought put into it from what I'm told.
Saucedo's biggest problem is that #1 he's a madre Republican (as in supports extremists like Rick Santorum - did you ever google "santorum" by the way? If you haven't, don't do it from a work computer) and #2 his political input has been to support illegal speed bumps for Cathedral High School, supported Larry Romero, and supported the obscene raise for the City Manager. Thats not the stuff to build a campaign on.
But its early still, so maybe he can get past it.
No world on when he might be making a formal announcement but its likely that some candidates that have let it be known that they are running for mayor won't necessarily make it on to the final ballot.
