Posted By on Fri, Feb 29, 2008 at 12:00 AM

On Thursday, Ralph Nader, making the latest in a string of insurgent presidential bids, named Matt Gonzalez, former San Francisco supervisor and mayoral candidate, to be his running mate. Gonzalez grew up in the Valley and attended high school in McAllen (where his family continues to live), before attending Columbia University. It'll be interesting to see if he can help Nader make a dent in the Valley, a historical Democratic Party stronghold.
