Wanted: Texas Republicans need new voters in 2020, and fast
The Associated Press ^ | February 13, 2020 | By PAUL J. WEBER

PFLUGERVILLE, Texas - It’s normal to target new voters ahead of Super Tuesday. Think volunteers holding clipboards at street festivals, malls or outside grocery stores. Democrats in Texas have made it a perennial focus, hoping they can end decades of losses by rousing more voters to the polls.

Republicans here, meanwhile, never really needed to bother - but now that’s changing as worries deepen about their grip on the state in 2020.

With their base not expanding and their margins of victory getting thinner, Texas Republicans have begun spending big on finding more conservatives to vote.

Yet another "Texas is turning Blue" fable from the good old AP.

Hispanics are culturally Conservative.   I don't subscribe to the theory that they are lifelong Democrats.

What I see is natural-born and legally immigrated Latino Americans looking around and having the same view of invaders and criminals in their communities as everyone else.

I'm sanguine about where we're going.  The Democrats are being exposed.
