Texas Democratic Rep. Ciro D. Rodriguez , who is in the second term of his second tenure in the U.S. House, has formed a leadership PAC that he can use to assist colleagues in need of campaign cash.  

Rodriguez’s political committee is called Tejano PAC , which takes its name from the Spanish word for “Texan.”  

Rodriguez was first elected to the House in a 1997 special election held to replace the late Democratic Rep. Frank Tejeda . Rodriguez served through 2004, when he was defeated in a Democratic primary by Henry Cuellar after a Republican-drawn redistricting plan attached part of Cuellar’s Laredo hometown to Rodriguez’s district.
