Wendy Davis running for TX Governor – how will Latinos be affected?

9445288959_0ec19e0bcd_c

According to various news sources, State Senator Wendy Davis (D) will run for governor and is expected to make an announcement next week. Davis, whose political stock rose after she filibustered a restrictive abortion bill earlier this year, is still considered an underdog in the solidly Republican Lone Star state.

It’s expected that Davis would affect Latinos in Texas politically because of the investment by the Democrats to leverage the growing Latino population to help turn the state blue. Davis could also have a down-ballot effect where Latinos running for local races could benefit from her presence on the ballot.

Sara Ines Calderon, a writer who has covered politics, breaks down how Latinos in Texas will be affected by Wendy Davis entering the gubernatorial race. Check out the clip below:
