Not sure what those comments were (0.00 / 0)
I never saw those comments recorded in print or online so I can't speak to them and their content. However, I can speak to entries and comments left here in the BOR and in the E-N comment boards by Doggett supporters who publicly trashed Castro as being a Republican puppet after accepting money from San Antonio supporters who also contributed to Republican candidates.

Regarding sharp elbows, all I can say from my own perspective is that I was challenging the validity of the claims, especially after I made note of the hypocrisy of them. If that's a "sharp elbow" so be it. You don't come in here and publicly trash a fellow Democrat for something like that when there's little basis to it and also give other Democrats a free ride just because someone is challenging their "favorite" candidate.

Regardless, with the announcement of Gonzalez's retirement and Castro now seeking CD-20, a district he has grown up in, all of these issues are behind us. Doggett has his seat. Rodriguez can seek CD-35 and Castro can now follow the Gonzalez legacy as a strong progressive congressman.

CD-35 (3.00 / 1)
Happy to see Rodriguez in this race. Hays County is now rid of Lamar Smith and Southside San Antonio will have a strong advocate. Since Ciro has been in the US House for 12 years, he will not be just "another" freshman Congressman.

I talked with Ciro last weekend at the Jim Mattox Park dedication in a southside subdivision. There is no question in my mind about him being a good congressman for working class Democrats. That said, Travis County Democrats can now focus on how much damage they can inflict in CD-10 next November. Many "sharp elbows" will be needed to help defeat McCaul.
