Default Your State/Local representatives, candidates, and races

Lot of focus is put on Presidential elections but local races usually have more impact on your life

Race I'm keeping an eye on:

Ex-punk rocker challenges Ted Cruz for Senate | Reuters

Bernie Sanders populist style Democrat (and former Punk Rocker) Beto O'Rourke is challenging the terribly unpopular nutjob Ted Cruz, it's a long shot but if there was any chance to unseat a Republican Senator in Texas any time soon this is it

My representative is Republican Duncan Hunter, who is being investigated for misusing and misreporting campaign funds.

But he vapes so he's a cool kid, right?

Just looks like a pretty unruly beard. Or maybe he's been eating some candy floss (cotton candy, I think you guys call it?) Then again, maybe that's the image of a pure spirit of evil caught on camera, though whether it's exiting or entering his mouth is open to interpretation...

This woman, who is one of my local reps, spoke at a small event the group I'm involved in held a few weeks ago. That was kind of cool.
