1pg: And based on Loren's article, Texas is ripe for the pickin' by Dems (all they have to do is organize a bit and get the Hispanic vote out). That's a boat-load of votes (38 EV, 32 seats in Congress). I hope someone in the Dem leadership realizes what Loren linked, and spends a bit of money to exploit it. Texas going blue will destroy most of the GOP's power (IMO). Where's their fiery ex-governor Richards??She's hanging out with Molly Ivins, sorry to say.There are other problems... Texas is heavily (R) except in the urban areas (Austin, Houston, Dallas), and overall substantially Republican. It also suffers from recent redistricting largely designed to exclude Latino representation, and a governor who is something of a figurehead (Say it ain't so...).It may well happen, but it will likely be a decade or so before fruition. The ruling powers are cohesive and unlikely to relinquish power without a fight and no doubt multiple smack-downs from the (federal) courts.rj
