20181022_170253.pngHi everyone! I hope you’ve been well! What’s new in your world? I’ve been SUPER busy working two jobs these days. If you’re in Texas, early voting for our midterm election for state senator and other important offices began today. Early voting started/starts on different dates in other states.

One of my stories has to do with local artist Patrick Gabaldon’s art of Beto O’ Rourke. All of the monies Patrick raises from his art goes towards O’ Rourke’s campaign. If you follow current events, social media and/or my blog, you’ve most likely heard of O’ Rourke. He’s running against Senator Ted Cruz in the midterm election on Nov. 6. Texas is known as a red state aka conservative state. Some say it’s impossible for Texas to ever become  a blue state aka liberal. El Paso is liberal but most counties in Texas are conservative…
