Andy Nguyen - A Republican Candidate
The incumbent Marti Ravenswaay has served the seat for 20 years and is facing criticisms for her lack of focus and interest. Andy Nguyen is riding a strong support of the Vietnamese-American community in Tarrant County where he once served as its president. He has raised over $52,000 while Marti manages to raise less than $30,000. At one of his fundraising events, 700 people came to show support and donation.
If he wins, he will be the second ranking Vietnamese-American elected official in Texas after State Representative Hubert Vo (Democrat). Similar to Nguyen, Hubert Vo was an underdog and came out of nowhere to win against a long time incumbent. Can Nguyen pull of a big upset in a predominately White electorate?
