Incumbent Congressman Silvestre Reyes made his appearance with Buzz Adams and the KLAQ Morning Show this morning and talked about a wide range of topics, including the War on Drugs.

In the first part of our interview, Congressman Reyes said El Paso could have looked very different had Fort Bliss been closed when he took office in 1996. The congressman spoke on his involvement to keep the base open and make it even more important.

In the second portion of the interview, Reyes talked about the negative campaign he accuses challenger Beto O'Rourke of waging and defends his hard-line stance on the United States' war on drugs.

However this Democratic primary comes out, we appreciate both challenger Beto O'Rourke and Congressman Reyes coming on the show. El Paso is better for the discourse.
