Q. What serious issue in your state would you like the next president to address?

Highway 35 is the drug corridor in Texas, which means we’re using local tax dollars to pay for enforcement. All those drugs are going to places like Ohio and Illinois. This is a national issue, not a Texas issue.

Texas delegate Rey Trevino, 51, of Lytle, engineer.
