The (Harlingen) Valley Morning Star

At first thought, many people might not consider state Sen. Eddie Lucio Jr. a rebel, but few would deny his willingness to go against the grain. Fellow Democrats at several times found themselves at odds with the man who has represented the eastern Rio Grande Valley in the Legislature for more than three decades, serving two terms in the House and before his election to the Senate in 1990. Lucio, 75, announced last week that the current term, which ends in January 2023, will be his last.
