I don’t get it. Why is Ciro Rodriguez back in the race against Henry Bonilla? He has lost his last two races for Congress. He has only $80,000 in his campaign account, compared to Bonilla’s $2 million. He put his political ineptitude on display by getting out of the race and then getting back in two days later. His presence on the ballot will raise the Democratic turnout, which increases the chances that the Ds can force Bonilla into a runoff. But what good is a runoff if Rodriguez is in it?
