LAREDO MORNING TIMES

Sergio Mora announced Thursday afternoon that he would not back out of the race against his former boss, state Rep. Richard Raymond. "It's been one of the toughest weeks of my life, but I feel comfortable with my decision," Mora said. "We're going to keep on truckin'." Mora announced his candidacy after Raymond said he would give up his 12-year seat as District 42 state representative to run against Rep. Henry Cuellar. But after Raymond announced last week that he was no longer running for Congress and would run for re-election, Mora said he was unsure of whether he would stay in the race. Mora said that he began assembling a team of supporters in September and a lot of time and money had gone into

his campaign. "A lot of people were very emotional about this," he said. "I owe it to them to continue." He said he was put in a difficult situation, after working for Raymond for three years. Mora resigned during the summer to begin his campaign, but he said he understood Raymond's motivations. "I deeply respect Richard," Mora said. "I consider him a friend and a mentor, and if given the choice, I would have preferred that we were never put in this situation. But for respect to my supporters and all the people that have been helping out all this time, I could not possibly retire from the race." Also still in the race for Raymond's seat are former County Judge Mercurio Martinez and Rudy Ochoa, president of the firefighters union.
