The 2018 election season is upon us. Millions of people from coast to coast are energized by the potential for change.
In Texas, Andrew White, the son of late Gov. Mark White, has entered the race for governor. White, 45, a Houston entrepreneur has never run for office before. His campaign commercial is certainly a welcome departure from the norm:
I like the upbeat, positive pacing. When you keep it snappy, people don’t fall asleep, go to the bathroom, or click off.
White will have to content against Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez, who provides Democrats with their highest-profile candidate for governor. She’s gay, Hispanic, and a cop.
White’s taking the more centrist approach and focusing his message on his ability to win in November. According to the Texas Tribune, all the Democratic contenders face long odds in unseating Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, who is running for a second term.
