Interview with Marc Veasey

Marc Veasey

In Week 2 of my contested Congressional tour of Texas, I have one interview from the most heavily populated primary, and two from the second most heavily populated. First up is State Rep. Marc Veasey, who is running in the hotly contested race for the new CD33 in the Metroplex. Veasey was elected to HD95 in Tarrant County in 2004, knocking off a Craddick Dem in the process. Veasey has been one of the stronger progressive voices in the Lege, and has served as the Chair of the House Democratic Caucus. He was on the Elections and Redistricting committees this past session, and was one of the key intervenors in the lawsuit over the House, Senate, and Congressional maps; more recently, he joined the court case against the voter ID law. Prior to being elected to the Lege, he was a staffer for former Rep. Martin Frost. Here’s the interview:
