The New Yorker just ran an article about couch-surfing, so now we can talk about this very hot trend from a few years ago. San Antonio's Delicia Herrera is running for the Texas House District 125 seat, but her house and dog and everything is in District 124. Trends!
In order to qualify for District 125's Democratic primary, Herrera has been renting her former campaign treasurer's home. She just hasn't been sleeping there. "I haven't been sleeping there the past week, but I will be from now on," she told the San Antonio Express-News. C'mon, Texas, what's the big deal? We live where we say we live. We're not defined by our stuff and our dogs. Home is where you hang your heart, amirite? I don't think I'm right.
So is this a case of a free spirit set loose on local politics, a wide-ranging woman who just can't be held down in one state district? Or is it a candidate who's being crafty to meet state election guidelines? Only Delicia Herrera–and perhaps her dog–knows for sure. But one thing we do know is that Herrera is willing to relocate for the House of Representatives gig, so that has to count for something. Moving is the worst, amirite? I'm totally right about that.
