With five days left before the filing deadline, Valdez joins six "little known Democrats" in running for the top spot on the ticket, the Tribune wrote.

Valdez has had some firsts in her career, like becoming the first Hispanic female sheriff in Texas and the first openly gay sheriff in Texas.

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.

Valdez was among about 40 female sheriffs in the US, a number that amounts to only about 1 percent of the total sheriff population, according to the National Sheriffs Association.

Over the past year, Valdez has attacked the state's anti-sanctuary cities law, Senate Bill 4, which Abbott has lauded as a measure to improve public safety.

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.
