      But it is the question constantly asked.

      I think Rubio would be a disaster for GOP. I'm thinking of voting in primary for him. OK, nah, I can't do that stuff. But it is a little tempting.

    •  Ted Cruz is not very representative of TX Latinos (2+ / 0-)

         He is of Cuban ancestry. Most TX Latinos are Mexican-American.  So Cruz is part of a small ethnic community in TX, not a large one.
