Former Dallas sheriff Lupe Valdez made history Tuesday by winning the Democratic primary run-off, making her the first Latina and the first out gay person gubernatorial nominee from a major party in Texas history.

Told that she is facing an uphill battle to unseat right-wing gun nut Abbott, Valdez said:

Please tell me when I didn't have an uphill battle.

Texas needs another strong female leader in the mold of Ann Richards. Let's hope all the Democratic enthusiasm to vote out the Rs holds!
