Received this e-mail today from former presidential candidate, Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s (D. TX) organization, Powered By People:
In a moment, I'm going to ask you to phone bank. Let me explain why it’s so important for us to do this work:
In 2018, we watched as amazing Texas State House candidates lost their races by less than 500 votes. It was frustrating to see so many real people, not bought-and-paid-for career politicians, lose by so few votes. And it was even more frustrating to see what the state legislature has done since then. We can’t let that happen again.
By committing to spend just 2.5 hours calling voters across Texas with some of these State House candidates, you can do your part in making sure that what happened in 2018 doesn’t happen again. We can win these seats. We can win a Democratic majority in the State House. We just need your help.
I understand that there are a lot of different campaigns and causes asking for your support right now. But by joining Beto and these State House candidates, you can help close the 500 vote gap we saw in 2018 in just 2.5 hours. Showing up to one phone bank shift can flip a race. Showing up to a few more could flip the State House. Let’s do this.
See you on the dialer,
