U.S. Rep. Filemon Vela runs for re-election against three challengers

Vela — who has represented the district since it was created — is running for a fifth term against Rey Gonzalez, the Republican candidate; Anthony Cristo, the Libertarian candidate; and Chris B. Royal, an independent candidate.
Channel 5 News sat down with all four candidates to discuss their platforms and positions.
