width=71 Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN Texas I am not a recovering Democrat" says Dallas Republican candidate Jason Villalba. I never was a Democrat. I know that probably makes some people look at me with a skeptical width=137eye" he says laughing.

Jason Villalba J.M. Lozano Raul Torres Dee Margo John Garza and David Pineda the Republican candidate for Texas House of Representatives in District 144 in PasadenaTexas all had success during this years primary season and are now working to find success in Tuesdays general election.  

  Retiring U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison stood in front of about 75 people recently and re-pledged her support for Villalba a 41-year-old partner at Haynes & Boone running to represent District 114 in the Texas House. Meet the only political candidate that Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has endorsed: Jason Villalba. Not one other person in the state of Texas have I endorsed in the primary even though Ive been asked a lot" Hutchison said. She explained why she made an exception for Villalba and her reasoning was width=170simple: Hes the future." Are Villalba J.M. Lozano Raul Torres Dee Margo John Garza (left with Texas Att. General Greg Abbott) and David Pineda the future of the Texas GOP? Those were the same words editorial boards around Texas and the nation are asking. Villalba J.M. Lozano Raul Torres Dee Margo John Garza and David Pineda are all young and optimistic more thoughtful and flexible in their views willing to work with legislators from all sides. And also theres this in case you didnt notice: they are Hispanic. Though demographics are changing and old battle lines are being drawn and re-drawn being a Hispanic Republican is still a rarity. South Texas incumbent J.M. Lozano is talking with voters months into the House District 43 campaign. Lozano 32 has been going door-to-door in the newly created district talking to some who have never voted Republican about what he stands for and why those values led him to width=159leave the Democratic Party in March. As a freshman Democrat he supported the sonogram law requiring doctors to describe the fetus to women seeking abortions and allow them to hear the heartbeat. That support among other decisions he made alienated him from his party he said. He wants voters to know that as a native of small town Premont he shares their anti-abortion conservative social values. He argues that his opponent former State Rep. Yvonne Gonzalez Toureilles a Democrat espouses a liberal agenda. I dont want to just win this election I want to have an overwhelming victory so that South Texans can now have a choice … he said. I want to make sure they know there are people with conservative values and they do exist and they come in all shapes and sizes. And I love that Ive been able to begin that dialogue. While Toureilles a three-term lawmaker has campaigned as being the more experienced candidate Lozano said as a Republican backed by party leaders he would be more effective and able to get more things done for his district than a Democrat lawmaker. Lozano said it has been his goal since he was a child to represent the area in which he grew up. This is a lifelong dream he said. Rio Grande Valley Republicans State Representative Raul Torres (right) is now running for Texas Senate District 20 currently held by a 22- year liberal incumbent. Torres a devout Christian whose speeches are non-apologetic about his faith and width=308pro-family values can be found in the small business establishments of his district meeting with local community members. Torres and his team have been blockwalking every night for months. And Torres has a real plan to create jobs in Texas. Raul is a common-sense conservative who will represent the values of the hard-workingmen and women of South Texas and Rio Grande Valley. He is committed to creating jobs improving education and securing a better future for all Texans" said George Antuna co-founder of Hispanic Republicans of Texas. Torres has received numerous endorsements since his successful freshman year as a State Representative.  His campaigns Twitter and Facebook efforts are becoming legendary in South Texas and across the valley. (See which organizations have endorsed Raul and watch a video from his latest campaign rally.) Speaking to a room full of excited voters State Rep. Torres speaks passionately about the need for the Republican candidates to win in South Texas appealing to voters that the American Dream is once again made possible to thousands of fellow Texans who wish to work for it. Torres is agressively and unashamedly talking to South Texas voters about what it means to be ... a Republican. (Click here to view a video of Rep. Torres explaining what it means to be a Republican.) David Pineda candidate for HD 144 in Pasadena Texas has done such a great job of campaigning over the last few months that Republican Senate Candidate  Ted Cruz recently rallied Pinedas volunteers width=211while visiting the  campaign operation. Candidate Pineda has been block walking daily thoughout every part of HD 144 to win the support of voters.   The Hispanic Republicans of Texas (HRT) are excited for the election tomorrow and look forward to seeing HRT candidates meet victory all across the state! HRT leaders say they are so happy with the success and progress of their Co-Founders George Antuna and George P. Bush they have campaigned non-stop in theRio Grande Valley for months. The Republican National Hispanic Assembly has also been working to promote Hispanic interests within the GOP while also promoting the party within the Hispanic community. Villalba has been focused on the latter part of that mission for years. He believes the Republican Party appeals to Hispanics or it should because most are Catholic (so theyre pro-life) and many own small businesses (which means theyre all for less taxes and smaller government). Is he right? Its an important question as the Hispanic community matures politically with more seeking office or otherwise getting involved. Look Im under no illusion that the majority of active Hispanics politically arent width=76going to be Democrats" said Villalba.  But its changing. Its changing because in Texas our message does resonate. A guy like me in a very high Anglo district can win because of the message we have which is one that were focused on people the community and progress. The answer remains to be seen. But if any of these Hispanic Republican candidates happens upon success Tuesday they will becomes an active part in deciding the fate of the Republican Party in the Hispanic community. In Texas and nationally.
