Houston, Texas – I had a ball at the Texas Democratic Convention, getting to catch up with friends and family in town, as well as interviewing and meeting a bunch of neat folks. Here are some photos of my trip.
I ran into my friend Stace Medellín when I first arrived and we took this photo, which was a bit elegiac for me, since my friend Carlos Guerra (QEPD) took a photo with us at the TDP in 2010. Stace’s blog is Dos Centavos.
Then I got to meet Off The Kuff himself, Charles Kuffner, who was SO nice!
There were some clever partisan signs.
There were some clever, t-shirts.
There were clever political buttons!
There were clever politicians! San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro, as well as his brother, the presumed future congressman of that same city, Joaquín, spoke to the press. I was one of three women present, which was kind of sad, but at least we were representin’!
Finally, I made some friends and had a great time, I love Texas and am glad I was able to come back, even if I didn’t get any breakfast tacos!
