First Hispanic U.S. Senate Candidate in Texas History, Victor Morales, endorses Garcia for TX-29

Houston, Texas – Adrian Garcia received the endorsement of Texas Hispanic political icon, Victor Morales, who was the first Hispanic Senate Candidate in Texas History to win the Democratic Party nomination – and who also ran against the wishes of the Democratic establishment.

“I’m very humbled that I’ve been asked to speak today and endorse a friend of mine, Adrian Garcia. I’m flattered that so many people remember our attempt to change history in politics.” said Victor Morales. “Back in 1996 thanks to the wonderful people of Texas, particularly the Latino population, we received two and a half million votes breaking down another barrier with almost a million Latinos and Hispanics voting showing that there is tremendous political power in Texas from the Hispanic population.”

“Also as an educator of 28 years, I see someone like Mr. Adrian Garcia as someone who will do a lot to help the schools, someone who will be in the schools checking with the principals, checking with the students - what is it that I can do as a congressman in Washington DC.” said Victor Morales.

“I am so honored to have the endorsement of a Texas Icon. Victor worked against the naysayers, people who said ‘you can’t do this’. He created history by motivating and inspiring others to participate in the political process.” said Adrian Garcia. “Remembering how he traveled across Texas in a white pickup truck with literally no money but with just with his heart in his hands and with dreams in his mind. There are similarities in these campaigns and that’s why this endorsement is so important and such an honor for me. Because I too started with zero dollars while the incumbent started with polluter PAC money. I too have worked against the establishment.”

“This campaign is about change, it’s about hope, but it is about the promise that our children are born with. That’s why education has always been the number one issue as to why I started this campaign,” said Adrian Garcia. “I’m so proud to be here in front of the Harmony School System and see the incredible things that they are inspiring their children to do. I met the next doctor who is going to cure cancer out of this school. I met the next astronaut who is going to land on Mars. The incumbent has said that we need trade skills, that we shouldn’t aspire to be more. I so respectfully disagree.”
