Hispanics and Kirk

Ron Kirk was in town again, this time at a campaign event designed to drum up Hispanic support.

In Houston, several Hispanic leaders turned out for the Kirk event at Don Carlo’s Restaurant near Hobby Airport with the same message: Hispanics should get to the polls and vote a straight Democratic ticket.

“The beauty of this ticket is, it’s Texas,” said [Rep. Ciro] Rodriguez, a San Antonio Democrat. He was referring to the “Dream Team” of Kirk, who is black; gubernatorial candidate Tony Sanchez, a Hispanic; and lieutenant governor candidate John Sharp, who is white.

I’ll be at the local Tony Sanchez headquarters on Monday calling voters. I plan on asking about pushing the other Democratic candidates as well. I’ll report back if there’s anything interesting.

Meanwhile, early voting continues to be strong in San Antonio. Via the newly permalink-enabled Tom Spencer.
