Campaign website
Armando Villalobos was a 2012 Democratic candidate seeking election to the U.S. House representing the 34th Congressional District of Texas.


Campaign themes


Villalobos's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Re-Districting
Excerpt: "Due to Republican overreaching, the Department of Justice has refused to pre-clear the Texas Congressional map for violations of the Voting Rights Act. The nature of DOJ's objections leads voting rights experts to assume that Texas will have more, not less, Hispanic Opportunity Districts."
  • Farming and Ranching
Excerpt: "Consumers think about food production constantly, but know very little about how food is brought to the dinner table or about farming or ranching. However, consumers, farmers, and ranchers seem to care about the same things: food safety, animal health, and the environment."
  • Alternative Energy
  • Oil & Gas
Excerpt: "In South Texas, we have located under the ground's surface sits oil and natural gas, which is a clean burning, affordable, and abundant energy source. Our dependence on foreign oil puts our economy at risk and our national security in constant alert having to rely on the resources of unstable and sometimes hostile foreign regimes."
