San Antonio, Tx. – Francisco "Quico" Canseco will face Will Hurd in a runoff at the end of May. The Canseco campaign was a strong contender throughout the very tight election and "Quico" Canseco is poised to be the best Republican candidate to challenge incumbent Pete Gallego this November.

"I am incredibly thankful for your continued support in this incredibly close race." Francisco "Quico" Canseco said. "I look forward to being on the campaign trail the next 12 weeks as I seek to secure the Republican nomination. Texans deserve the best nominee to stand up against government waste and Gallego's Obamacare and I believe I am the best candidate for that."

Canseco continued, “Now, arriba y adelante!”

Canseco is expected to win the runoff election to be held on May 27, 2014.

Families across America make responsible choices every day, based on their household budget. They decide how to stretch their dollar and what corners to cut. Many Americans live on a fixed income and that often means making sacrifices for what's important, like giving up the family vacation to pay for their child's braces.

As we approach the primary on March 4th, we would like to invite you to join us as we fight to take back Congressional District 23.

Tomorrow morning at 10:00 AM, we will meet at our campaign headquarters located at 11851 Bandera Rd #121 and block walk together. This will be a great opportunity to meet fellow supporters and to spread the word of our effort to retake the 23rd district.

I’m running for District 23 because I know real change needs to come to Washington. I’m not a lifelong politician, I’m a small business owner. I’ve seen firsthand the difficulties created by this administration. From higher taxes, to greater regulations to Obamacare, enough is enough! If you’re ready for a conservative fighter to stop out of control spending and to defund Obamacare, make sure you get to the polls and vote for the March 4th primary!
