Daniel "Danny" Valdez is the former county judge of Webb County in south Texas, United States. Valdez is the 22nd person to hold the elected office since Webb County was established in 1848. He served four years with the United States Navy and twenty-four years as a justice of the peace before he became county judge on January 1, 2007. His second term as county judge began on January 1, 2011. Valdez narrowly won Democratic renomination in the primary runoff election held on April 13, 2010. He defeated Tano Tijerina, a Laredo businessman and a former baseball player for the Milwaukee Brewers. In a low turnout contest, Valdez received 14,227 votes to Tijerina's 13,575 ballots. In the primary election held on March 2, Valdez had also led Tijerina by a narrow margin. Two other candidates were eliminated in the primary: former 406th District Judge Andres Ramos and former County Judge Louis H. Bruni, Valdez's predecessor in the office. Valdez faced no Republican opponent in his heavily Democratic county in either of his elections as county judge.
