MCALLEN, Texas – State Sen. Juan Hinojosa has given a brief overview of the 2020 Election from a South Texas perspective.

In an exclusive eve-of-poll podcast with The Rio Grande Guardian, Hinojosa discusses the recent visit to the Valley by Kamala Harris, the Democratic Party nominee for Vice President of the United States. He also discusses whether Texas is in play for his party, after decades of Republican control. And he talks about the political scene in Corpus Christi, which is the northern part of his district.

Hinojosa, a Democrat from McAllen, represents District 20 in the Texas Senate. The district includes the western half of Hidalgo County, including Edinburg, Mission, and part of McAllen, Brooks County, Jim Wells County and the eastern part of Nueces County.
