Out-of-state candidate says he’s eager to get to know, serve District 27
VICTORIA, Texas – Ricardo “Ricky” De La Fuente, a California native and resident, says he is eager to serve the people of South Texas – even though he’s not a current resident of the state.
De La Fuente won 64 percent of the vote in his race for the spot on the Democratic ballot for the state congressional seat in District 27. De La Fuente also ran for a congressional seat in California at the same time as his race in Texas. He did not win his race the California primary. His father, Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente II, ran for the Republican ballot for President in the primary election. The De La Fuente family is known for running for office in several states across the country. De La Fuente said he became interested in running after he saw no Latinos were on the ballot for the congressional seat.
“So I’m to going to be building my campaign and moving full-time into the district, you know, getting around, attending events, knocking on doors, getting all the Democrats excited about my candidacy,” De La Fuente said.
