Democratic gubernatorial nominee Lupe Valdez says that one in six Texans don’t have health care, and that Texas is the most uninsured state in the nation. Is that a fact? Gardner Selby of the Politifact Texas fact-checking team has the answer.
After clinching the nomination for governor by winning the Democratic primary runoff, Valdez was interviewed by the New York Times and was asked about what issues she would focus on in her campaign against incumbent Gov. Greg Abbott. She mentioned education and health care.
“One in six Texans don’t have health care,” she said. “We’re the most uninsured state in the U.S.”
