Menendez heads to Texas

Senator Bob Menendez will campaign for Hillary Clinton in Texas tomorrow to help turn out the state’s huge Hispanic community, just as polls show Obama closing in on Clinton’s lead there.

Menendez plans to lead a group of Hispanic elected officials on campaign stops through the cities of San Antonio, Brownsville and Houston until Monday.

Hispanic voters make are estimated to make up about one-third of Texas’s Democratic electorate and are considered crucial to Clinton winning the state. Recent polls show her with as much as two-thirds of Hispanic support, although Clinton and Obama are running neck-and-neck in the Lone Star State.
