Salcedo makes it to Mexico - "All is normal"
Two days ago, Salcedo was kind enough to let us know he was hitting the road.
Here's a hasty email he dashed off in between expressions of solidarity with victims of the drug war.
...rushing to Laredo bishop's residence...more soon, Sylvester ...all is safe and normal...The photo here shows Salcedo, at left, with the Nuevo Laredo mayor's private secretary, Enrique Garza Flores.
A bit later, Salcedo sent the following. Keep in mind, he was only expecting to spend a couple of hours in Mexico. After all, he's got a two-year-old - and a Senate campaign - to manage.
