AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement regarding Texas Senator Carol Alvarado’s Intent to Filibuster Anti-Voter Legislation SB 1:
“We commend Senator Alvarado for taking this brave stand in the fight against legislation that erects barriers to voting. This has been a long and arduous battle for our Texas Democrats — and because of our legislators’ commitment and courage, it’s nowhere near over. It is because of their bravery that Texans across the state, those in marginalized communities, people of all creeds and color, know that their freedoms and rights are Democrats’ top priority.
“Texas Democrats continue to show the world that we will do whatever it takes to protect our constituents and our freedom to vote. Thank you Senator Alvarado and to all our courageous Democratic Legislators for putting it all on the line.”
