Statement from Senator Leticia Van de Putte regarding the 2010 Governor's race:
"I would like to extend a sincere congratulation to Governor Rick Perry on his re-election. Although we may differ in our political parties and policy priorities, we can't afford to operate in a partisan manner. We have a projected $18-$22 billion revenue shortfall that will affect all Texans. With the election behind us, it's time to push partisanship aside and focus on improving the lives of Texas families in the 2011 Legislative session. Let's get to work."
