The 2018 lineup includes: Mike Collier, Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor (10:15 a.m.); Justin Nelson, Democratic candidate for attorney general (10:45 a.m.); Lupe Valdez, Democratic candidate for governor (11:15 a.m.); and U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso, Democratic candidate for U.S. senator (12 p.m.). Their Republican counterparts were invited but declined to attend.
