Texas Hispanics not as tribal as liberals thought

Washington Post:
The boom in the number of Hispanic voters is radically changing the face of American politics, and there may be no better example than Texas, which picked up four new U.S. House seats after the 2010 Census.
But while Hispanics accounted for 65 percent of the state’s population growth between 2000 and 2010, Texas is poised to add no Latino lawmakers to its congressional delegation, after primary elections this week dealt a blow to those hopes.
... 
Besides not being as tribal as expected, it is also likely that much of the growth in Hispanic population has not reached voting age yet.
