State Rep. Leo Pacheco from Texas District 118 recently announced that he plans to leave his seat in the next two to four weeks.
According to the Express-News, Pacheco will resign to pursue a career in academia, he will be joining San Antonio College’s faculty to teach public administration full-time.
“It was too good an offer to pass up,” said Rep. Pacheco about his new job.
Pacheco’s resignation means that Gov. Abbott will soon be calling a special election to fill the seat, meaning Republicans will have a chance to turn the district red if Democrats don’t do something about it.
