Heads up, Harris County! We now have a 27-yr-old female Democrat with no experience as our County judge. Oh goodie.
Democrat Lina Hidalgo is a first-time candidate for Harris County judge. She unseated Republican Ed Emmett - he's the goober who keeps trying to rehab the Astrodome even though Houstonians already voted to get rid of it years ago.
Hidalgo isn't exactly a political prodigy - her resume includes working as a Spanish-English medical interpreter at the Texas Medical Center. Neato.
Among other leftist causes, Hidalgo pledges to be tough on climate change. Who knew Texas county judges could control the weather? How exciting!
Hidalgo spent the night celebrating with Sheila Jackson Lee, which tells you everything you need to know about Hidalgo.
