Without the investments and dedication of our speakers, Texas would not be the biggest battleground state in the country. They have inspired their communities to rally around the notion that in 2020, Texas Democrats will make history.
Stacey Abrams has a deep connection to Texas, obtaining her Master of Public Affairs degree at the University of Texas’ LBJ School of Public Affairs. Her organization, Fair Fight, has made critical investments in the Texas Democratic Party, allowing us to build our most expansive voter protection team in Texas Democratic Party history.
“The South is changing and Democrats are rising. I could not be more excited to discuss the face of the changing South and our plans to elect Joe Biden as the next President of the United States with my Texas colleagues and friends."
Our Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate, MJ Hegar, has sparked widespread Democratic grassroots energy in Texas. Texans understand that once elected, MJ will represent Texas values in the U.S. Senate, and amplify the voices of Texans who have lacked effective representation in the Senate for far too long.
As for our panelists, their investments in our Democratic movement are unparalleled. From leading the Department of Housing & Urban Development under the Obama administration to breathing new life into a statewide U.S. Senate campaign, and launching a national organization aimed at protecting ballot box access for millions of Americans — when you think to yourselves ‘who are the leaders propelling our state and our country forward’ — let us tell you, you have the chance to hear from them this Thursday.
Texas Democrats are going to turn Texas blue up and down the ballot in November, thanks to the countless investments in our Democratic movement. Join us this Thursday to hear from the Democrats who have made Texas the biggest battleground state in the country.
