Hispanic Republicans of Texas Performance Review
When Battleground Texas started up, we heard a lot about how the booming Hispanic population in Texas was going to turn this state blue. On election night, Texas Republicans and HRT hit Democrats with the biggest reality check in years!
Thanks to your support, the Hispanic Republicans of Texas PAC recruited and encouraged candidates across the state to run for office and endorsed over 40 candidates for various offices. Last night over 70% of those supported by HRT won, including three candidates in state house districts where over 2/3 of the population is Hispanic.
