Minjarez, 46, worked as an assistant district attorney for Bexar County and eventually opened her own law firm. In 2015 she won a special election to fill House District 124. She won again in 2016, 2018 and 2020.
“We anticipated a runoff, you know, being that I’m not well-known throughout the county — I’m very well known in House District 124,” Minjarez said during her party Tuesday night at Acadiana Cafe. “We’re exactly where we wanted to be tonight.”
