Here is a photo of Tx Rep Aaron Pena and General Abbott with me and my fellow bloggers:
Michelle Lancaster and Kathleen McKinley. He was hurriedly leaving this event to catch a plane to his next stop.
Rubio stated that he looks forward to working with the recent winner of the Texas GOP primary race for the senate - Ted Cruz.
Let me mention that Texas Rep Aaron Pena is a terrific guy and he was able to help me and my sister bloggers catch a photo on the run with Senator Rubio. We always enjoy the company of Rep Pena and wish him well as he ventures out of his service to Texas in Austin and pursues new goals when his current term is over.
The event was quite successful. Folks from all walks of life were there and lots of people in leadership, both locally and statewide, were there to enjoy the event. Spanish media was there and the speech delivered by Senator Rubio will be broadcast on Univision. Senator Rubio addressed the Spanish speaking audience in Spanish briefly as he said if he didn't, then they would give their own interpretation of his words.
I look forward to supporting The Hispanic Voter Network as they work to increase Latino membership in the Republican party. The group is off to a good start.
