Carbajal Endorses Leeser

The third place finisher in the El Paso mayoral race is endorsing Mayor Dee Margo’s challenger in the upcoming runoff. Veronica Carbajal announced her support on Wednesday for former mayor Oscar Leeser, who preceded Margo from 2013 to 2017. Carbajal called Leeser the “better candidate” for El Paso, stating that the Sun City could not take four more years of Mayor Margo. Leeser garnered about 42-percent of the vote in the election earlier this month, with Margo finishing second at almost 25-percent.
