January Meeting—HD 28 Phone Bank and Letters

It’s the most important special election swing district in America.

Dr. Eliz Markowitz is running THIS MONTH to serve HD 28, and when we pick up that seat, Dems will be only eight seats away from flipping the Texas House. Eliz is running against a Republican so awful even Empower Texans is against him.

Beto O’Rourke and Mike Bloomberg are doing their part, block walking in Fort Bend—let’s do our part!

We’ll make calls with Mobilize America, and you can register now for Thursday, Jan 23. Click here.

SwingLeft 24 will also provide templated Get Out the Vote letters to Democratic voters for the November election, for volunteers would would prefer writing activities.

Bring a friend or two!

Bedford, TX 76022

Friends, we are fighting for our state. We’re excited to toast to 2020, promote our shared mainstream values, and work to elect Democrats who will protect them:

  • fully funding public education
  • protecting our environment
  • access to affordable care
  • women’s health care and privacy
  • gun violence prevention
  • fair and free elections

Texas is the biggest battleground state and thanks to the hard work of Texas progressives, we’ll continue gains from 2018 and flip the Texas House this November!

If some or all of these values are your priorities—join us!

Dear Future Voter—Voter Registration Letter Drive

Texas is the biggest battleground state!

Republicans are losing their grip on political power thanks to traditional Texas Democratic voters and new young voters and people of color.

We need your help to send letters to likely Democrats who are NOT currently registered in the county where they live. The letters will include a postage paid voter registration card and GOTV letter.

The number of likely Dems we can contact depends on the number of MCD members and friends who participate, so don’t miss it!

We’ll also close officer nominations. Up for election—president, VP, treasurer, secretary, fundraiser/hellraiser.

Thursday, October 24

Here’s our Facebook event to share.

HD 92 Democratic Forum

Democrats need only nine seats to flip the Texas House and HD 92 is the 6th most winnable in the state! Rep. Jonathan Stickland accomplished nearly nothing, knew he’d be defeated in 2020, and isn’t running again. 

Two Democrats, Steve Riddell and Jeff Whitfield, are vying for the Democratic nomination and to bring real representation to the district. At the first forum of the HD 92 Primary, hear why they deserve your support AND raise money for 2020! All proceeds of our event will be donated to the winner of the Democratic Primary. 

Our forum will be moderated by journalist James Russell, who has written for D Magazine, Dallas Voice, Huffington Post, Texas Jewish Post and QuorumReport.com. Questions from the audience are allowed and welcome.
