Democrats hoping tribal conduct by Hispanics will give their candidate a shot in Texas
Just How Doomed Is Lupe Valdez?Hispanics in Texas are not one dominical voters. In fact, there are successful Hispanic Republican officeholders. It should also be noted that Gov. Abbott who is running for re-election against Valdez is married to a Hispanic. Valdez has also been a lackluster candidate with baggage like unpaid property taxes. Add the problem of having to defend the evils of liberalism in Texas and she has a big challenge on her hands.
She made history by becoming the first Latina nominated by a major political party to run for governor of Texas. Will that historic moment become nothing more than a footnote?
