Castro brothers predict Texas will turn to “blue” state soon
Sunday, January 20, 2013

San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro and his brother, Rep. Joaquin Castro, see a lot of blue sky in Texas’ future.

The twin brothers predicted to a national TV audience Sunday that Republicans will lose their iron grip on Texas _ that within two presidential election cycles, the currently “red” state will shift from a GOP stronghold to being dominated by Democrats.

On CBS’ “Face the Nation,” the prominent Texas Democrats also said that President Barack Obama and Congress should tackle the economy, education, immigration reform and gun laws this year.

“It’s changing. It’s going to become a “purple state” then a “blue state” because of the demographics, because of the population from folks coming from outside Texas,” Julian Castro said.
