Here we are the biggest city in the Rio Grande Valley, have the most active drug and human trafficking corridor in the United States, have the only county in the Rio Grande Valley with a Republican county judge, and Ted "El Cu-Cuy" Cruz isn't going to include ol' Browntown in his "End of the World 2-Day Tour."
The freshman U.S. Senator is beginning a two-day tour of the lower Texas-Mexico border to tout his record in the U.S. Senate and talk about border security, as it were.
He will use this chiflado (whistlestop) campaign stops to continue his campaign to press Congress to defund programs of the Affordable Health Care Act in stops in Mission, McAllen and Laredo.
His press office said that he begins the tour with his Mission and McAllen stops on Tuesday, followed by a stop in Laredo on Wednesday.
Why is it that most statewide and national officials still believe that anything south of Harlingen is in Mexico?
And why does Cu-Cuy think that we don't warrant a gander at his gran visage or are worthy of hearing his drivel under the guise that it represents the Hispanic viewpoint (Cuban-American) when most of us were born in the United States and he was born in Canada?
There is even some wild talk about Cu-Cuy becoming president on the Tearepublican ticket.
But with Ted preaching the conservative line in tones more Catholic than the pope, we doubt that his entry into the fray will garner the necessary Hispanic turnout that even George W. Bush needed to make it to the White House.
