    Corpus Christi still has  "Hispanic or Latino of any race were 54.33% of the population.". Nueces county is slightly higher %, but the remainder of the district (to the south) greatly outnumbers CC.

      You also have to look a little at the angry hispanic voter a little as well. We talk about motivations to turn out, I have met a lot of conservative hispanics who hate the anti immigrant rhetoric but who are getting really angry about the corruption so yeah you may have had the same turnout of hispanics but a larger majority of anti ortiz votes came out because he was vulnerable. The biggest voting bloc in south texas is always the people who stay home.

      God bless the USA
