Valdez said she looks forward to spending the next year speaking with Texans about issues such as healthcare and immigration, specifically addressing the fear many undocumented immigrants have of deportation.

The Dallas sheriff immediately becomes the highest profile Democratic candidate for a party that has seemingly had difficulty recruiting someone to challenge Republican incumbent Gov. Greg Abbott. Abbott criticized the move as a sanctuary city policy.

Sheriff Lopez threw her hat in the ring Monday morning in what will likely be a lightly contested Democratic Party primary for the governor's slot on the November ballot.
