El Paso, TX (KTSM) — Voters will head to the polls Saturday to elect a new mayor, and the two candidates are doing everything they can to sway last minute voters. Oscar Leeser handily defeated Steve Ortega in the general election by more than 20 percentage points, but failed to capture a majority of the vote.
Both candidates are visiting our KTSM studios in the days leading up to the election to discuss why they should be elected. Today we interviewed Steve Ortega. He discussed everything from the ballpark to corruption in schools to transparency in government.
Oscar Leeser will visit our studios on Friday. For part two of our interview with Ortega, click here.
