The El Paso Times has a story today about early voting.
And it compares early voting from this year with early voting from 2014, a mid-year election, and 2016, a presidential year.
But it really should be comparing it with 2012.
2012 was the last time El Paso had a heated Democratic primary for a congressional seat.
In 2012, this is what went down when all was said and done:
There are some differences between 2012 and 2018.
First of all, it is an open seat.
Second, you have six candidates rather than five running.
And of those six, three are women.
But does that mean we will see higher turnout in this race than in 2012?
And if so, does it or does it not bode well for the frontrunner?
