Texas Democratic Party Co-Executive Director Jamarr Brown issued the following statement:

“We applaud the women and men who are fighting to bring fairness and balance back to our courts and who have stepped up to protect our rights and ensure our freedom.  These Democratic judicial candidates understand first hand how critical their role will be as we battle unfair policies and laws passed under our state’s Republican control.  Our courts are tasked with checks and balances of state government, and I’m confident that Democrats will uphold the responsibility of the courts and ensure justice for Texans once elected.”
