(Eddie Rodruiguez)

Eduardo Rene "Eddie" Rodriguez was elected to the Texas House of Representatives at the age of 31. He just turned 49 on July 1 and is finishing up his ninth term. He's senior among the half-dozen lawmakers who represent Travis County in the House.


He's the only male in the solid-blue delegation. Three of those five women endorsed his senate bid: Representatives Gina Hinojosa (HD49), Donna Howard (HD 48), and Celia Israel (HD 50). As have 11 other House members, including Speaker Pro Tem Joe Moody (D-El Paso).

This article focuses primarily on Rodriguez. An article on candidate Sarah Eckhardt was published earlier this week.
