Democratic and not overwhelmingly so and and and it's a little volatile swings but I -- I would think to where Republicans.
Well he -- his varied over time I think the Hispanic community is a profoundly conservative community.
The values that resonate in our community their -- family patriotism.
Hard work yet you know had a friend of mine and Hispanic onto the -- For some time ago asked -- said when's the last time you saw the Hispanic panhandle.
