City Rep. Holguin takes step toward County Judge run

EL PASO, Texas - City Rep. Eddie Holguin Jr. has filed paperwork for a possible run for El Paso County Judge.

On Thursday, Nov. 14, he filed financial paperwork with the County naming his wife treasurer for his campaign to run for County Judge.

ABC-7 attempted to reach Holguin by phone Friday morning but was not able to.
Holguin has about 18 months left in his term on City Council and last year ruled out a run for mayor because he said he wanted to finish out his term.

"I want to let all my friends and constituents know that I am fully committed to completing my current term as Representative for District #6," Holguin said in a statement on his Facebook page in Nov. 2012. "I have no desire, nor intention to seek the Office of Mayor of El Paso. ... In short, I am committed to completing my commitment to my District."

County Judge Veronica Escobar is running for re-election.  Businesswoman Aliana Apodaca has also announced she will run for the post.
