Representative Janet Cruz was unanimously elected as the Leader Designate of the House Democratic Caucus for the 2016-2018 term and will be the first Hispanic House Minority Leader. One of her favorite community projects is hosting “The Deviled Crab Throwdown.” Cruz decided to host this annual event, all in good fun, but it is truly a nostalgic nod to the cultural importance to this food item as well as a way for the community to come out and gather over something as simple but cherished as a deviled crab. We caught up with Representative Cruz and Brocato's Representative, Ruben Blanco, who won 1st prize at last year's throwdown, to talk about the details.
