Running with Beto Watch Party and #TXLege Session Wrap

The session is wrapping up and because of record turnout and Democratic gains, Texans are seeing better bills and better-behaved lawmakers*. 

For our annual May social (no May meeting), let’s celebrate Sine Die (the end of the 86th Legislative Session) together and watch “Running With Beto,” winner of the 2019 SxSW audience award.

“Running With Beto” follows Beto O’Rourke behind the scenes of his breakaway campaign to unseat Ted Cruz in the United States Senate. With intimate access to the candidate, his family and team, this independent documentary captures Beto’s rise from a virtual unknown to a national political sensation.

Retire Texas’ Worst Lawmaker

Pundits and donors ignored HD 92 for years. You may not know the district, but you know Jonathan Stickland—disliked on both sides for his antics and extremism.

He was just the lone “no” vote on HB 3—a sweeping education reform bill. Each session, he authors permitless carry—guns everywhere, for anyone, anytime.

Last session, he led the “Mother’s Day Massacre,” killing 121 bills including one to protect kids from online sexual predators.

HD 92 has NO voice for reason or progress. With our help, the 2018 Dem nominee closed a 16-point lead to less than three.

Stickland is embarrassing. He’s appalling. He’s funded by West Texas dark money and he beats every R challenger because the hard right turns out.

Heard enough? We’re fundraising NOW for 2020.

Pitch in TODAY to retire Texas’ worst lawmaker.

Local Elections Phonebank

Democrats have shared values on equal opportunity, minority protection, education investment, family leave options, and so much more. That’s why we support Democrats in all elections.

It’s critical to help get out the vote during Early Voting and we’ll be making calls for our smart and qualified friends running in Hurst, Euless, Bedford, and Southlake.

You can choose to call or text after our quick business meeting. 

See you there and bring a friend!

Another Stickland Failure

Embarrassing. Appalling.

This week, Democrats and Republicans came together in the Texas House to pass House Bill 3, funding full day pre-K, teacher and campus staff pay raises, investing in students, not test scores, reducing recapture, and lowering school property taxes.

Only one lawmaker voted against this massive reform bill. HD 92 has no voice for progress on public school finance/education/taxation with Rep. Stickland in office. Send him packing.

We are fundraising now for our 2020 nominee.

Stickland is funded by West Texas dark money. He’s beaten every Republican challenger because the hard right turns out in primaries. The only way to win is by electing a Democrat to serve HD 92. We’ve helped elect smart, qualified, and fair Democrats who care about our community, the environment, education, healthcare AND you.

Help us take the district in 2020.
