SD19 special: San Antonio attorney and longtime Democratic activist Charlie Urbina Jones has filed for the race, becoming the sixth official candidate. San Antonio financial analyst Tony Valdivia established a campaign committee and updated his web site to run for the seat vacated by former Sen. Carlos Uresti (D-San Antonio). Valdivia unsuccessfully sought city council P8 in 2017, finishing fourth (11%), and received 428 votes statewide as a write-in candidate for president in 2016.

Rep. Tomas Uresti (D-San Antonio), who lost his re-election bid in the Democratic primary to Leo Pacheco, tweeted that he has been “asked to run” for his brother’s former seat, and he is “contemplating” it. Candidates for the race must file by tomorrow (Monday).
