New Day Rising: Hispanics and the Political Landscape

At the Tribune's New Day Rising symposium on Feb. 28, four political consultants — Democrats James Aldrete and Beth Hernandez and Republicans Allen Blakemore and Ross Hunt — talked about how the emerging Hispanic majority in Texas will impact voter turnout and candidates and campaigns in 2012, 2014 and beyond. The panel was moderated by Jim Henson, the director of the Texas Politics Project at the University of Texas at Austin and one of the pollsters responisble for the University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll.
