Ride the Wave with The Mid-Cities Democrats

RideTheWave-Twitter.001

The votes are in and whether your favorite candidate won, lost, or is headed to a runoff, contested races helped boost Democratic turnout locally and across the state! Democratic turnout of 1.1 million votes is up more than 100% from 510,000 in 2014, and Democrats spent little in paid media.

Our base is enthusiastic, with an early vote at a huge 47% of the total vote. A Dem is running for every congressional seat and for almost 90% of seats in the #TXlege. We have a diverse, strong coordinated statewide campaign that reflects the Texas electorate.

The blue wave has reached Texas and we want you to ride it with us. In the last few months, The Mid-Cities Democrats:

• Introduced you to the candidates running for Congress, District 24

• Kicked-off Democratic Nominee for Lt. Governor Mike Collier’s statewide public education tour

• Held the only Tarrant County gubernatorial debate

• Were the only Tarrant County club to feature our Democratic nominees for Land Commissioner, Railroad Commissioner, and Comptroller

• Hosted Ed Espinoza, Executive Director of Progress Texas

As we do each cycle, our events will soon transition from speaker-focused to action-focused, with phone banks and canvassing coordinated with local campaigns. We know it takes hard work to get our candidates elected.

February 2018 Meeting with Miguel Suazo for TX Land Commissioner

Feb2018Meeting.001

Come meet Miguel Suazo for Texas Land Commissioner, running to beat George P. Bush.

The Dallas Morning News recommends voters back Miguel Suazo’s candidacy in the Democratic primary: “Most every notch on his resume corresponds with the experience necessary to run the Texas General Land Office.”

Suazo says he’s the Democrat running to beat George P. Bush.

Commissioner George P. Bush has failed to proactively protect Houston from storms like Hurricane Harvey, failed to protect Texas’s most prized historical site, the Alamo, and failed to stand-up for teachers across the state of Texas by generating the revenue they need to support Texas’s schools.

January 2018 Meeting with Román McAllen for TXRRC

January2018Meeting.001

Join fellow Mid-Cities Democrats at our first meeting of 2018!

Our guest speaker is Román McAllen, running for the Texas Railroad Commission, which oversees the oil and gas industry, pipeline safety, and not railroads.

Texans needs a public advocate to enforce existing environmental and public safety protections. Big business has three friends on the three-person commission. Regular Texans have none.

“Having a regulatory agency that is bought and paid for by the industry that it’s supposed to regulate is as costly as it is pointless,” – Texans for Public Justice Director Craig McDonald.

Let’s reform the TXRRC, starting in 2018.
