I'm late on this but Leticia Van De Putte's loss in San Antonio demonstrates what I've said for a long time. The TDP is not close to turning Texas blue. She lost to an African-American in San Antonio. If a Latina Democrat with her notoriety, coming off of a statewide race can't win in San Antonio...dayum! It shows how hard it is to come back once you've lost and it shows that the Party is no where near as strong as we like to tell ourselves.
Donald Trump talked a lot of smack about raza and we are finally standing up for ourselves which is a good thing.
But I want to know where the GOP's establishment leadership is on all of this. They've been trying to court the brown vote for years. Why aren't they pushing back on this?
Where are the Latino Republican organizations?
And where are the brown Republican candidates? Are you guys just gonna letTrump say this crap and not stand up for yourselves? Your silence sounds like agreement.
