State Rep. Poncho Nevarez won't seek reelection in 2020

by Patrick Svitek, Texas Tribune


State Rep. Poncho Nevárez, D-Eagle Pass, is not running for reelection, he announced Friday.

"I will not stand for reelection for a fifth … term in the Texas House of Representatives," Nevárez said in a statement. "I want to thank the folks in HD 74 who put me in a position to serve.

"We talk about how important family and health is in all this, and as such my family needs me and I need them," Nevárez added. "I must heal up for the rest of what may come in my life. So, it is time to come home."

Since 2013, Nevárez has represented House District 74, which covers a massive chunk of South and West Texas that includes most of the state's Mexican border and stops just short of El Paso. It is a Democratic-friendly district likely to remain under the party's control next year.
