Republicans still control the Texas House, but Democrats gained seven seats to eliminate the Republican super-majority. The influential Latino vote is a hot topic, and both Castro brothers were on news networks this week to talk about the future. Sylvia Manzano from Latino Decisions talks about her thoughts going forward. Finally, Harvey Kronberg joins us to size up the Texas results.</p><p> Fri, 09 Nov 2012 20:54:49 +0000 David Martin Davies 1547 at http://tpr.org Pete Gallego Watch Party, Castros Talk Latino Voting, And A Texas Election Wrap-up Canseco and Gallego in Spanish-Language Debate for Congressional Seat http://tpr.org/post/canseco-and-gallego-spanish-language-debate-congressional-seat <p>From his stance that big banks are his opponent's focus and not small business, State Representative Pete Gallego, D-Alpine, said U.S. Congressman Francisco "Quico" Canseco, R-Texas, went to Washington, D.C. and became a part of the problem. Canseco said he wants growth in the private sector, where his opponent would destroy the country's economic force.</p><p>Each of the candidates argued back and forth on a stage at Palo Alto College Tuesday night.
