Burnt Orange Report Endorses Marco Montoya in CD-25

by: Burnt Orange Report

Marco Montoya is working hard in his campaign for Congressional District 25. We unanimously endorse him in the Democratic primary.

It is a good sign of enthusiasm among Democratic voters that two individuals have stepped up to challenge Republican incumbent Roger Williams in CD-25. The gerrymandered monstrosity runs from Hays County to Tarrant County, and was drawn by the Republican legislature to send former Secretary of State Roger Williams to Congress, where he has done... well... not much.

Williams has primarily advocated for the defunding and repeal of the Affordable Care Act. Otherwise his main accomplishment seems to be the creation of the Congressional Baseball Caucus. We like baseball as much as the next group of Astros fans, but Texas deserves better representation.

Montoya is a veteran and has lengthy experience working in federal government. He also has a strong background in education and understands the challenges that other immigrants face in trying to make a better life in America. He is also a strong, spirited campaigner with an enthusiasm that belies his age.

Owing to his experience and energy, Montoya is the best choice to give Roger Williams heck on the campaign trail this fall.
