Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have spent considerable time in San Antonio over the last two weeks, but a deeper South Texas connection to this presidential race slipped past many people busily eyeing Tuesday's Texas primary.
On Thursday, Ralph Nader, making the latest in a string of insurgent presidential bids, named Matt Gonzalez, former San Francisco supervisor and mayoral candidate, to be his running mate. Gonzalez grew up in the Valley and attended high school in McAllen (where his family continues to live), before attending Columbia University. It'll be interesting to see if he can help Nader make a dent in the Valley, a historical Democratic Party stronghold.
