DALLAS—A closely-watched race this election day is a House seat up for grabs in the newly-formed 33rd Congressional District. That district stretches from Fort Worth through parts of Arlington and West Dallas.
Eleven Democrats and two Republicans are vying for the seat.
Domingo Garcia, is trailing in the race. This is no surprise; everyone knew this would be a close race.
Garcia is a 54-year-old attorney. He is a former State Representative, he also served on the Dallas City Council and was the Latino to be elected Mayor Pro-Tem of the City of Dallas. He says he's running to make sure that families in Dallas and Tarrant County have a voice in Washington. His biggest challenger is 41-year-old Marc Veasey of Fort Worth.
Veasey is State Representative and a commercial real estate broker. He's running to improve education and protect jobs in the area. The two have sparred while campaigning. Garcia has criticized Veasy for supporting GM, American Airlines, and Lockheed -- going as far as calling him an 'errand boy' for supporting the companies and not the workers.
Tonight, the voters will get to decide. Of course, there is no clear winner in tonight's race; the top two winners will go into a runoff on July 31st. The winner will face off against the Republican challenger who wins tonight, either Chuck Bradley or Charles King, in the general election in November.
