Received this e-mail from Julián Castro (D. TX) in support of Dr. Eliz Markowitz’s (D. TX-HD28) campaign in the upcoming special election to flip the Texas State House:
When I ended my campaign for president, I told you that I wasn’t done fighting.To build a nation where everyone can reach their dreams, we can’t afford to leave a single person on the sidelines—and that includes in my home state of Texas.This year we have the chance to turn Texas blue, flip key districts across the state, and ensure more people in our state have the opportunities they need to live a prosperous life.That’s why I couldn’t be more proud to support Dr. Eliz Markowitz in her special election for House District 28—and to join her THIS Saturday at a canvass in Katy, Texas to help get out the vote ahead of the January 28th special election.

Julián Castro and Dr. Eliz MarkowitzSaturday, January 18th at 1:30PMDr. Markowitz has spent her career fighting for a more efficient health care system and and a more fair school system. She’s running to ensure that all Texans, no matter their income or background, can get a good education, quality health care, and can live safely in their communities.This special election is our first chance to flip a Texas House seat ahead of the November elections.
