Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“Beto O’Rourke delivered the best statewide margin for Texas Democrats in a generation. He shattered all expectations and showed the nation that Texas is in play in 2020. We’re proud to have him in the race.
“With two Texans running to represent us in the White House, we could not be more excited about the 2020 election.
“Our great state is the most important battleground state. It is critical that every candidate for president join Julián Castro and Beto O’Rourke in campaigning in Texas. We know that once Texas goes blue, the Republican path to the White House will be blocked.”
