“No Democrat has won a statewide race since 1994, which is another way of saying the winner of the Republican primaries and runoffs has won every statewide election for almost the past two decades” (Austin American-statesman, 2014). Although South Texas is considered traditionalistic, it has a history of low voter turnout due to its Hispanic population not voting, Jane “Bitzi” Johnson Miller would not do that great in this region because of the increase of Hispanic population who have more democratic views. “Texas will look very different in 20 years as a changing ethnic makeup affects the way people vote” (Williams, 2014).
