11. Castro

Don't be surprised to see him as VP candiate In 2016.

If there Is a white nominee who can can get the black vote out In high numbers with Castro as VP getting the hispanic vote In
high numbers Texas might be In play for 2016.

A ClintonCastro ticket In 2016 could be very strong In 2016 and could make Texas Competive.

In 1996 Bill Clinton got 44 percent of vote In Texas to Dole getting 49 percent of the vote but remember Dole did better with Blacks
than Romney did and hispancis weren't as strong a voting block In 1996 as they are now.So It's not a crazy thing to think.I didn't
mention 1992 since with Perot being from Texas It's hard to know who It would have gone to but Clinton only lost to Poppy Bush In
Texas by 4.
