Marisa Marquez fund-raiser
State Rep. Marisa Marquez had a fund-raiser at Pot au Feu in Downtown El Paso on Monday. Familiar faces were there — Dee Margo, Rick Francis, Harold Hahn and other regular political donors. It’s an irony in El Paso that Democrats often get funding from Republicans, who have very few elected officials here (and among those, the Haggerty clan has dominated, and has not always been on board with the big donor Republicans). State Rep. Norma Chavez, for example, has received donations from many of the same figures.
Marquez distanced herself from the event when asked who organized it: “This isn’t my fund raiser. We didn’t organize it, the business community did, and there’s a big difference.”
