SAN ANTONIO (October 16, 2012)--At least $4.2 million in television ads are bombarding viewers in San Antonio, who will decide whether they should keep freshman Republican U.S. Rep. Francisco Canseco, or oust him in favor of Democratic challenger Pete Gallego.
The sprawling 23rd Congressional District will be among the few toss-ups in Texas next month.
The nearly 600-mile wide district boundary stretches all the way to El Paso, but the race will be won or lost in San Antonio, which is the market where the candidates and groups backing them are buying air time in bulk.
Canseco narrowly outraised Gallego in campaign finance reports released this week and has more than $1 million in cash on hand.
