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.

First 21st Century Democrat to win statewide office in Texas. "I believe good government can make people's lives better, and I intend to do just that", said Valdez in a statement Wednesday morning. Even though she resigned this morning, Valdez will continue to serve as Dallas' sheriff until a replacement is named.

Democrat Lupe Valdez, who has resigned as Dallas County sheriff and declared her candidacy for governor of Texas, often underscores her family's background as migrant farm workers.

Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins reacted to the announcement Wednesday via Twitter, thanking Valdez for her leadership.

Texas Democrats have faced uncomfortable questions for months about whether they can field a credible gubernatorial candidate.

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. At the time, Abbott responded by threatening to pull $250 million in criminal justice grants to counties that followed Valdez's lead, though Dallas never lost any funds.
