Four File For District 124 Texas House Seat
SAN ANTONIO — Four Democrats are officially in the running for Texas House District 124, the Bexar County seat opened up by José Menéndez’s election to the State Senate last month.
Candidates to replace the San Antonio Democrat include San Antonio City Councilmember Delicia Herrera, firefighter Nathan Alonzo, attorney Ina Minjarez and insurance agent David Rosa.
Rosa, who is listed as a Democrat for the special election, unsuccessfully ran as a Republican against now U.S. Representative Joaquin Castro in 2012.
Menéndez, who has held the District 124 seat since 2000, won a special election to fill the vacated seat of Leticia Van de Putte, who is running for Mayor of San Antonio.
Early voting begins March 23 and ends March 27. Election Day is March 31.
