For our second episode of The 210 Podcast, host Mari Aguirre-Rodriguez interviewed two candidates who are quite familiar with each other?, ?state Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer and state Sen. José Menéndez. These two experienced legislators are battling for Senate District 26, again. Menéndez beat Martinez Fischer (59% to 41%) during a special election in January 2015 after Leticia Van de Putte vacated her seat for a Mayoral campaign.
The upcoming March 1 Democratic primary will decide the race, as the winner will run unopposed in the general election. Early voting for the primary begins on Feb. 16.
