Look, I may end up eating crow in a few months, but I'm gonna marinate the shit out of that crow with sour grapes until that motherphucker tastes guuuuud.
Your former County Judge Veronica Escobar is learning a rather ugly truth.
She just ain't all that popular.
If she were, no white woman from the West Side who have thought about challenging her.
If that were not enough of a sign of Escobar's unpopularity, my former employer, Norma Chavez jumps in the race.
Now, Escobar could have overcome this unpopularity had she not spent several months dicking around. By that I mean, the day that Beto O'Rourke had announced he was running for Senate, Escobar should have announced she was running for Congress. But no. She tried to be coy and cute. Between the time of O'Rourke's announcement and her own announcement, Escobar had an opponent that raised some serious cash.
And now, Escobar has an opponent, that has some serious name ID.
Yes, in my not so humble opinion, Chavez has a shot.
You can talk about Chavez's negatives, but at the end of the day Chavez never voted to increase your property taxes or vote herself a pay raise.
That and Chavez ain't married to a guy who earns his paycheck from deporting Mexicans.
As much as Escobar says, "What does my husband have to do with anything?", ultimately Escobar does spend that deportation money.
Chavez can paint her opponents as wealthy out-of-touch West Side and Central residents, while she can run as the "Woman of the People" candidate.
So what does Chavez need to do?
She just needs to get into a run-off with Fenenbock.
After that, Chavez will be able to tell Woody Hunt and Paul Foster, "Chupame la verga, pendejos."
