Debbie Wasserman Schultz tweets: Texas to soon turn blue
Texas recently elected tea party favorite Ted Cruz to Senate, but don’t count on such results from the traditionally conservative state for much longer, predicts Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
In a tweet Wednesday to Battleground Texas, a fledgling Democratic organization, Ms. Wasserman Schultz said: “@BGTX Congrats on #GameOnFortWorth! Only a matter of time and hard work until #TX is #blue! #countdowntoblue #teameffort.”
The tweet echoes Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s assertion earlier this week that her home state Arizona, a traditional conservative stronghold, will move to the left in the coming years, mostly due to an influx of immigrants.
Commenters on Ms. Wasserman Schultz’s tweet pointed to the same immigration effect taking hold in Texas.
“California used to be a strong red state — remember Gov. Ronald Reagan? Then millions of Mexicans arrived and the liberals took over the schools,” posted one. And in reply, another posted, “This is true. I was born and raised in Inglewood, California, and the influx of illegal aliens became so bad even my dad had to leave. And he was from Mexico but came here legally.”
