The “other” 2013 election

Carol Alvarado will face off against Sylvia Garcia in the race to succeed the late Sen. Gallegos.

National news hopped onto this affair, mentioning that the Gallegos family will be supporting Alvarado. The Chronicle article which mentions Garcia’s candidacy also mentions that Rick Noriega is considering throwing his hat into the ring. Meanwhile, each side is touting some of its endorsements, with Garcia picking up State Reps such as Jessica Farrar and Garnet Coleman, and Alvarado picking up Sen. Ellis, Mayor White, and Ronald Green. This will be a fun primary.

UPDATE: The Chronicle says this might happen in December, but I still suspect it will occur in 2013.
