César J. Blanco

César Blanco was raised in El Paso by a single mother, and comes from a family of educators and healthcare providers — and with a family tradition of U.S. military service dating back to World War I — public service runs deep in César’s family. The grandson of an immigrant who came to Texas to build a better life, César followed his family’s tradition of service by enlisting in the U.S. Navy. After his military service, César came home to El Paso and earned a degree from the University of Texas at El Paso. He continued his public service working for several local members of Congress. In 2015 he ran and was elected to represent District 76 in the Texas House.

In the Texas House, César has delivered as a strong champion for El Paso by leading initiatives to improve access to healthcare, strengthen our workforce, local economy, and border communities while also improving the quality of life and increasing economic opportunities for all Texans. He has also led efforts to expand mental health resources for veterans, rein in rising prescription drug prices, increase oversight over border security, and deliver historic public school funding.

For his record of fighting for veterans’ education opportunities and border communities, Texas Monthly named him one of the best legislators in Texas. 

Today, César is running for Texas Senate because we need a fighter committed to building a stronger future for El Paso and West Texas.
