If I lived in El Paso, I would vote for Norma.
Weird given how much I have bashed her.
Emotions can bring out the worst of people.
But fortunately time does heal old wounds.
I first met Norma when I was acne-ridden college student wanting to be an intern of hers.
Sure, it did not hurt that I did not mind being unpaid, but Norma still took a chance on me.
Little did she or I know at that time what would be in store for the both of us as the years unfolded.
Look, I will be the first tell you that Norma has her faults.
But I will also be the first to tell you that Norma, despite her faults, busted her ass for El Paso.
She busted her ass when quite frankly did not seem to be worth it.
She served in a legislative delegation of men.
But it was Norma, not the men, who had her dick on the table.
And yeah, after a while, I can see how that might make you carry a chip on your shoulder.
I thought it was silly of her when she thought the El Paso Times had it out for her.
But looking back now, it turns out I was the silly one for thinking otherwise.
I thought it was silly of her to be so paranoid.
But when you live in town were an acting County Judge teams up with the only major newspaper in town to send a City Manager and City Representative packing you can never be too paranoid.
Yes, there was party and a degree.
But compared to others running for Congress at least her mistakes did not cost you a dime.
Yea, as Congresswoman, Norma will be rough around the edges, but one thing she will always do is put El Paso first.
