Leticia Van de Putte has announced her bid for the Democratic nomination for Lt. Governor and Wendy Davis has expressed support for Senator Van de Putte's strong record.
I had sort of been hoping for a Castro brother to run as I must admit to some distrust as to the feminism of the men of Texas, but I find myself thrilled. I love Senator Van de Putte. When I was a very young legislative aide for Representative Elliott Naishtat in Austin, I remember her efforts to protect children from lead poisoning. She rocks.
This is an historic ticket, Mamas. There have never been two women running for the two top statewide offices in Texas before. Let's win!
