A cartoon of Texas with the words "Loon Star State" inside its outline. The "L" in "Loon" is wearing a hat that's part cowboy and part dunce cap.

Loon Star State: Nasty Eddie

Our new endorsement for Texas Attorney General.


Ben Sargent, a bald, older white man with a bushy white beard is dressed in a suit and red bowtie, with his artistic tools, including pens, in front of him.

A version of this story ran in the January / February 2023 issue.

A cartoon showing two inmates in a dirty prison cell wearing orange inmate jumpsuits. One bearded inmate is painting graffiti on the wall, reading "Nasty Eddie for Texas Attorney General" with a goofy picture of his face. The other inmate says, "You can't run for that Eddie ... You're a perpetually corrupt serial offender?" "So?" replies Eddie.
