Texas AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Montserrat Garibay today issued this statement in response to news that all 12 Democrats in the Texas Senate have announced opposition to the confirmation of Texas Secretary of State David Whitley:

"The Senators who have announced opposition to the confirmation of David Whitley as Texas Secretary of State understand voter suppression when they see it. The Texas AFL-CIO thanks them. We also thank the many allied organizations that are standing up for voting rights. We need a Secretary of State who will rescind the bogus voting advisory and encourage every eligible Texan to cast a ballot."
