Received this e-mail today from former presidential candidate, Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s (D. TX) organization, Powered By People:
We know how important the presidential, senate, and congressional races are this year. In both cases, we’ve been talking about those elections for over a year.
But we cannot forget how important local elections are, too – they are what impact our daily lives the most, from the potholes on your street to gerrymandering and voter suppression.
That’s why we need to do everything in our power to Take Back the House. Can you join Beto and call voters on behalf of 20+ State House candidates?
We only have nine days left in this election.
Nine days to turn out every Democratic voter in the state.
The top-ballot races are important, no doubt about that, but it doesn’t matter what progress is happening in the White House if our own State House is stopping it. This is our last major push on behalf of these State House candidates, and we have to give it everything we’ve got.
We’re going to be calling voters in each of these 20+ districts, make sure they know the name of their State House candidates, and remind them that this is the last week to early vote in Texas. It seems simple, but these are the important and necessary conversations we need to have if we’re going to flip the Texas State House for the first time in 20 years.
See you on Zoom,
