Excellent Post (5.00 / 1)
As an example of what you are saying, Nueces County went from blue to red in 2010. Republicans for county office were getting 60% of the vote in a county that used to be a Democratic stronghold. Local Dems worked their asses off in 2010, but had little to no support from TDP. In 2012, Abel Herrero did manage to beat Connie Scott, but that was mostly thanks to redistricting and Herrero's high profile and good reputation as a candidate. Todd Hunter did not even have a challenger!!!

With no chance of winning any statewide office in 2012, TDP should have focused on a half dozen counties that they could win back and/or help build and strengthen the local parties. I am out of politics now, but what was the TDP strategy in 2012. Was there one? Was it executed? Who knows.

I voted for a lot of Greens and Libertarians on the 2012 ballot.
