Yesterday, Texans went to the polls to vote. There wasn’t much fanfare about this election. After all, it was a run-off election for state and national races. It was, however, an historic election because it saw the first time an Hispanic female who is also the first openly gay candidate to win a major party’s nomination for governor. Milestone as that may be, Texans — and everyone else for that matter — should be more concerned with the actions of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) leading up to yesterday’s vote. Simply put, the DNC decided it knows best when it comes to who should be on the local and state ballots.
Not that this should surprise anyone. We saw this attitude in full-force during the last presidential campaign. Long before the primary, the fix was in by the DNC. Hillary Clinton was going to be the nominee. It didn’t matter who the voters wanted. The DNC, for whatever reason, wanted Hillary. Bernie Sanders never had a chance.
