The Dallas Voice

May 30, 2012

In what is arguably the biggest race of the night for the LGBT community in Texas, openly gay candidate Mary Gonzalez captured 53 percent of the early vote in El Paso’s House District 75, putting her well ahead of Hector Enriquez, who was in second with 36 percent.

Gonzalez can avoid a runoff and capture the seat if she stays above 50 percent after Election Day results come in later tonight, as there are no Republicans in the race. (El Paso is an hour behind Dallas.)
