Another Nativist Pol Bites the Dust

Republican Nativist, Shelley Sekula Gibbs, lost in her bid to to reclaim Tom DeLay's old Congressional seat. Read the full report at the Dream Act Texas site. ( While Sekula-Gibbs would have made an entertaining character in the general election, this loss shows once again that anti-immigrant cant will not work as a wedge issue to get you elected. How long before the Republicans wake up and realize that the rant and rave they see on Fox News and the so-called cable news shows simply will not carry the day for them. Too bad for everybody concerned, the Republican hate machine continues to stoke nativist hatred without any returns. Check out the Dream Act site for more details.
