George Rodriguez, Democratic candidate for TX-32, endorsed by ‘Good Doctor’ actor Nicholas Gonzalez and Marcos G. Ronquillo, respected attorney and advocate
DALLAS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, February 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Democrat George Rodriguez, one of seven Democratic candidates running for the TX-32 seat currently held by Republican Pete Sessions, has been formally and publicly endorsed by two very high-profile supporters: actor Nicholas Gonzalez and esteemed attorney Marcos G. Ronquillo.
“It is a tremendous honor to have these two endorsements from community activists like Nick and Marcos,” Rodriguez said. “Nick has been a champion of immigrant and Hispanic issues throughout the nation. Marcos is well respected for his professionalism and his commitment to community service. I am just thrilled to have received this type of support at a national and local level.”
Nicholas Gonzalez, a native Texan best known as an actor in ABC’s The Good Doctor and Pretty Little Liars, The CW’s The Flash, and multiple other television and movie roles, released his endorsement of Rodriguez today from the set of The Good Doctor. For years, Gonzalez and Rodriguez have volunteered together at the National Hispanic Institute, a nonprofit dedicated to the future leadership needs of the global Hispanic community.
In his video endorsement, Gonzalez praises Rodriguez as a community advocate and devoted family man who’s answered the call to serve. He calls on voters to choose George because he’s not a career politician, but rather, a candidate in touch with the needs of his district and his community. The endorsement video can be found on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtxIZqDbTLQ&feature=youtu.be.
Gonzalez took to Twitter yesterday to announce his endorsement, pinning the Tweet to the top of his profile.
Yesterday, esteemed Dallas attorney Marcos G. Ronquillo publicly endorsed George, citing the need for new leadership and for change, because Americans have “had enough.”
“Our party needs new leadership. Community leaders that are academically prepared, with a track record of success in the private and public sectors, professionals that have and continue to give back to our community and are willing to build bridges and not the walls that further divide us,” Ronquillo said. “I have known George for quite some time and I know he has the skill set and proven track record to lead and bring us together, and we are fortunate to have a person of his caliber to step forward and serve not only our Party but more importantly our country. No more politicians please!”
