Texas May Be a Swing State in 6-8 Years
San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro (D) said Texas will be competitive for Democrats in the next six to eight years, National Journal reports.
Said Castro: "Here in Texas, the Hispanic vote has been growing tremendously because Hispanics accounted for 65 percent of the population growth over the last decade. We're going to see more and more Democratic candidates get elected to local races, county races... At the statewide level, it's going to take a little bit longer."
