Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-District of Columbia) said when Texas goes “full blown” with Hispanics it’s going to mean an end to the GOP, or “this southern section white party of old men.”
The delegate made the comments on PBS’ To the Contrary program on June 28.
A panel was discussing the recent filibuster of an abortion bill by Texas State Senator Wendy Davis. Host Bonnie Erbé said, “I was shocked quite frankly by all the – speaking of Texans — those hundreds if not thousands of Texans who were in the state capitol all up and down the stairs cheering her on. I didn’t think that there was that many Democrats left in Texas.”
Norton replied, “Oh, yeah and you got to watch out because Texas — when Texas goes full blown — the Republicans better have it good now because they are not long for this world.”
