Beto vs. Cruz.

The Texas Senate race between Republican incumbent Ted Cruz and Democrat challenger Betto O’Rourke is in a virtual tie. This development has raised many eyebrows, since for the past three decades Texas has been a reliably Republican state. Cruz is seeking reelection for his second term in the US Senate.

LULAC’s New Leader. LULAC, the oldest Latino civil rights organization in the nation, has a new president. Dallas Attorney Domingo García comes in with an agenda that includes bringing in thousands of younger members, pro-immigration reform policies, advocate for aid for Hurricane-stricken Puerto Rico and ramp up Latino voter turnout. He will also have to deal with the political fallout of the outgoing president, who sparked an intense debate after he praised Trump’s immigration plan.
