Is State Senator Leticia Van de Putte the best hope for Texas Democrats to win a statewide office?
The candidate for Lieutenant Governor told 550 KTSA News she's been finding support in unlikely places as she travels across the Lone Star State.
"I may not the profile--the mom of six, the grandmother that most people think about when they're thinking about candidates" Van de Putte said, adding she feels no added pressure from being talked up as the Texas Democrat who could win big in the fall.
"All I know is that I feel so very blessed to have this wonderful family behind me--and to be the (Democratic) candidate for Lieutenant Governor" Van de Putte said.
On the Republican side, Incumbent Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst and State Senator Dan Patrick will square off for the GOP nomination during next month's run off.
