There are lots of anxious candidates and campaign workers across the state and here in the Coastal Bend as the statewide run-off from the June primary draws to a close.
Several local elections are still up in the air. One of them is the Democratic run-off race for congressional District 27.
Rose Meza Harrison was at Garibaldi's Mexican Restaurant on Staples Street Tuesday. She was hoping to pick up some last minute votes in her battle with Jerry J. Trevino, a local attorney. Both are hoping to win this race so they can take on incumbent Blake Farenthold in November.
Harrison spent the good part of the day hitting the streets while Trevino's approach was to campaign over the radio.
"I'm really trying to get people pumped up and excited to go to the polls," Harrison said. "I'm telling them that I'm going to be the first Latina, the first Hispanic woman to represent Texas in congress. We only have three women right now who represent Texas in congress, and we need more women. It's a very important and historic election year. They need to come out and vote."
