Received this e-mail today from former presidential candidate, Beto O’Rourke (D. TX), on behalf of his group, Powered by People:
We always knew that we could win Texas, but now the rest of the country knows as well. Fox News just released a poll showing Joe Biden up one point over Donald Trump in the great state of Texas.
But we’re going to need your help to make the most of this opportunity – by ensuring that we have the resources to reach every single likely Democratic voter in Texas and then turn them out to vote on November 3rd.
Help us finish the job and defeat Donald Trump once and for all by making a $35 contribution to Powered by People before today ends. Right now, we need to make sure our budget is strong enough for the road ahead.
We shouldn’t take too much stock in any poll, but as someone who is deeply concerned about the future of this country, these numbers do give me hope.
If we build on these results by getting more volunteers involved in a true state-wide organizing effort, we can deliver the 38 electoral college votes to Joe Biden AND win a Democratic majority in the state house in November.
This kind of voter outreach, more than anything else, will stop Donald Trump and Trumpism once and forever in America.
I’d love to have your help (and for those who’ve already donated, your continued support) to do this important work.
