Even after Hillary Clinton’s speech, a speech which Fmr. Dallas Mayor Ron Kirk said she delivered “masterfully” the Texas Delegation is still divided. As B Rob has said throughout our stay and as Mayor Kirk mentioned in our conversation, Texas’ Primary vote was split right down the middle. So the tension in Texas stems from such a close vote.
At the end of breakfast, Clinton supporters sought a represtative during the roll call process to ensure the vote goes smoothly
. Mayor Kirk, who is the Obama campaigns #1 person in Texas, says he trusts the process. But he is clearly ready to move past this…as are the majority of convention attendees.
Every speaker that comes to Texas says the pary is unified, yet Texas still is not. The Clinton holdouts are not the majority…but they sure are loud.
