Bexar County Tejano Democrats endorse the following candidates

    The Bexar County Tejano Democrats and the Bexar County Young Tejano Democrats, of the SouthWest Texas Coalition of Tejano Democrats, Endorsement Committee has met and announces candidates who are receiving our endorsement.                                                                                                                                                                
    Endorsements were based on the criteria set forth and announced on Facebook and email communications. In any race that is not noted or mentioned on this list, a "no endorsement" was taken.                                                                                                   
    In certain local and countywide races in which "no endorsement" were taken, the decision to submit this decision was because of the number of candidates seeking office. In the Presidential race no endorsement was taken in respect to the number of supporters for both Presidential candidates within our organization. In any race in which there is an “asterisk” this denotes an endorsement by the Bexar County Young Tejano Democrats.                                                                                                            
    In certain offices in which an incumbent is serving and a "no endorsement" was given is a result of the incumbent not participating and or supporting our initiatives, as well as not meeting the criteria disclosed in our public communications. No statewide candidates were endorsed.                                                                                                                                     If you should have any questions, please contact Peter Vallecillo, Chair BCTDs or Carlos de Leon Chair BCYTDs. Thank you and these are the candidates and/or incumbents endorsed:
