Ronquillo
Dallas lawyer Marcos Ronquillo will announce today the thing that everyone has known for months: that he plans to run for mayor. Ronquillo opposes the Trinity toll road project and will make that the centerpiece of his campaign. He will probably announce other stuff, but all anyone is going to talk about is that Rawlings=pro-toll road, Ronquillo=anti-toll road. Including me, apparently.

UPDATE: Rudy Bush on why it’s a good thing for Dallas that Ronquillo is running.
