CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - Labor Day weekend is the unofficial start of the final push toward election. It is when the political season kicks into overdrive.
At the local Democratic headquarters Monday it was picture day, with all the candidates taking time out from campaigning to pose for a unified shot.
One of the hottest contested races this year is that of Nueces County District Attorney. Attorney Mark Gonzalez said he will be focusing on meeting with as many prospective voters as possible until election day to remind them of the needs of the DA’s office. Republican candidate James Gardner has been block walking, spreading his message of change, promising innovative ideas to improve the DA’s office.
Early voting starts Oct. 26 and runs through Nov. 4. Election day is Nov. 8.
