Marquez Clings to Lead over Moreno
Wed March 5, 2008 12:25 am

This is the race in El Paso that pits newcomer Marissa Marquez against Paul Moreno. It bears some resemblance to the Escobar-Rios Ybarra race, in that the female challenger has pizzazz and the male incumbent does not, and also that both women received Republican money. Marquez lost the early vote, narrowly, and has won election day voting by 454 votes, leaving her 189 votes ahead with 14 of 34 precincts reporting. I have always thought Marquez would win this race, but it is far from callable.
