“Poll after poll shows the same result: Texas is the biggest battleground state and the focal point of the Democratic offensive strategy. It’s a dead heat.

“Texans are demanding change. They want leaders who will fight for them on issues like healthcare, education, and the economy. That’s why they are voting for Democrats.
“We will win the White House, take out John Cornyn, send more Texas Democrats to Congress, flip the Texas House, and elect hundreds of local Democrats across the state. We know that once Texas goes blue, the Republican path to the White House will be blocked.”
