David de la Fuente
David de la Fuente became passionate about politics during the2000 presidential election, when he was an elementary school student in Dallas,Texas. Since then, he has followed politics intensely for both professional andpersonal reasons—he watched as his father earned the right to vote in 2002 andas his mother voted for the first time in 2004, at his urging. David firstvolunteered on campaigns as a high school student in 2006’s midterm election, whenGeorge W. Bush’s native Dallas County transformed from a Republican strongholdto one in which Democrats have won 99% of countywide elections in the pastdecade. Hooked, he has pursued a political career since that cycle.
