Cuellar vs. Rodriguez

John Fund of the Wall Street Journal makes the point that liberal Democrats cannot take the Hispanic vote for granted, and that moderates are very appealing in heavily Democratic and mostly Hispanic congressional districts. Fund examines the Democratic primary race in Texas between Henry Cuellar and incumbent congressman Ciro Rodriguez and concludes that Cuellar's positions in favor of vouchers and the Iraq war may have contributed to his victory in a bitterly contested election against the current Chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. Very interesting article.
