“Compromise works a lot better when you get along, and you work together for the common good of the American people," Lerma said. “One big problem that we're having in our country right now is inflation, and the only way you're going to control inflation - in my opinion - you got to control government borrowing and spending and you got to cut taxes."

Businessman Mauro Garza – a Trump loyalist from San Antonio – is also in the race. This is his third attempt for a congressional seat.

Garza says he plans to address at least 40 different issues, with a focus on the economy. 

“I want to defend our constitutional rights, and our Texas values — faith, family and freedom - and I want to keep America safe and secure,” Garza said.
