Teague, Tinsley to Appear at Forum in Mesquite
Next Tuesday, October 28, at 6 p.m., Harry Teague and Ed Tinsley, candidates for the U.S. Congressional seat currently occupied by Steve Pearce, will face each other in a forum at the Firehouse in Mesquite (No. 1 Firehouse Rd). The forum is sponsored by the Mesquite Community Action Committee and Southern New Mexico PACE. It will be moderated by yours truly, Jose Z. Garcia, in a format in which the moderator will begin by asking questions of each candidate, to be followed by questions from the audience. This will be the first and probably only opportunity voters will have to be able to see both candidates in a single setting. Last spring the three Democratic candidates for Congress appeared at a forum in Anthony, New Mexico. According to recent polls (see electionprojection.com and navigate to the Congressional section of the site) the race between the two is very close.
