Texas State Senator and Statewide Candidate for Lieutenant Governor Leticia Van de Putte has been making the rounds with the national press lately as a guest on national political shows such as The Daily Rundown with Chuck Todd and Ronan Farrow Daily.
Although she is considered the “running mate” to the Senator and Texas Gubernatorial Candidate Wendy Davis, as a 23 year veteran in the Texas Legislature, Senator Van de Putte can stand the spotlight alone and shine just fine by herself.
Check out her interview with Chuck Todd on the Daily Rundown below the jump, and click to see all the other media Senator Van de Putte has earned.
Check out this clip of Senator Van de Putte talking with Ronan Farrow about the voter suppression law in Texas and how it affected her here:
Most of this press coverage comes off the heels of her campaign finally hiring a campaign manager, Scott Remley, a DNC veteran and several high profile congressional races.
But again most this coverage is organic, because like her colleague at the top of the ticket, Van de Putte has a very compelling story, so it's fitting that the national media has given her due credit. Earlier this March NBC News covered her narrative, discussing her as the tough Latina candidate in this brief story. MSNBC also profiled her candidacy late last month in this Q&A piece.
Van de Putte also being no stranger to the capital of Texas sounded off on Austin media musing on what will sure to be ugly run-off between current Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst and Senator Dan Patrick. Whoever wins this run off will face Van de Putte in November.
