Is Senator Rand Paul Right, Could Texas Turn Blue?

This morning I found this story about Senator Rand Paul’s trip to Texas this past weekend. I found this particular coverage of Paul’s visit interesting:

Speaking to the county Republican organization in Houston Saturday evening, Paul warned that Texas “will be a Democratic state within 10 years if you don’t change.”

“That doesn’t mean we give up on what we believe in, but it means we have to be a more welcoming party,” Paul said, as reported by CNN. “We have to welcome people of all races. We need to welcome people of all classes – business class, working class.”

“We need to have people with ties and without ties, with tattoos and without tattoos; with earrings, without earrings,” he said. “We need a more diverse party. We need a party that looks like America.”

More to the point, that means attracting more Hispanics, who make up nearly 40 percent of voters there.

So, I’m interested in hearing from you, what you think about Senator Rand Paul’s warning to Texans?
