Democrat Juan Garcia and Republican Todd Hunter are waging what is going to be the most expensive State Representative race this cycle. Republicans know that, without knocking off Garcia, they are in trouble. Garcia, however, is running an excellent campaign on the issues -- and exposing Hunter for the opportunist that he is.
It would take to long to re-write, so first, go read this diary:
Then, I'd recommend watching Garcia's two television ads:
In 2006, Garcia proved that he can run an excellent campaign.
In 2007, Garcia proved that he is an honest, hard-working leader in the Texas House.
In 2008, Garcia will prove again that he's an excellent campaigner, and ultimately the people of House District 32 will be all the better off for having Rep. Garcia fight for re-election.
