Yes! The day we’ve been waiting for has come. Wendy Davis is running to be the next Governor of Texas. And by the looks of the negative messaging the hate-filled Republicans, including
vendido right-winger George P., have been sending out, they’re scared. Perhaps all the attention toward Davis will mean rational independents and moderates might want to hear more substantive stuff about Wendy Davis. There will be more to come.
Well, if you want a Latino perspective on Wendy, give Rey Guerra and me a listen on our most recent podcast. While the little brown one will want to instill fear in Latinos (that’s the only reason the Republicans are using him), rational Latinos like Rey and I will discuss the real issues that vendidos avoid. You can even cheat a little and find our discussion at the 14:10 mark.
I think we may start using the tag-line, “Vendido-Free Radio.” What do you think, Rey? Anyway, as far as this blogger is concerned, I’m looking forward to voting for a female gubernatorial candidate for the 2nd time in my lifetime.
It’s Van de Putte’s Turn to Announce
Oh, the pressure! But I sure do hope Senator Leticia Van de Putte announces for Lt. Governor. A strong Latina candidate at the top of the state ticket is what is needed to carry the Democratic message across Texas. We have a set of the state’s top hate-filled, right-wing yahoos running for the seat in the other primary, and Senator Van de Putte would offer a calm, rational, positive alternative to any of those guys that is about bring people together. This isn’t and shouldn’t be about any historical firsts, this should be about fielding the best, hard-working candidates who want to earn it. And Van de Putte is one of those kind of candidates.
