Texas 38 electoral votes -a weapon of mass destruction for the GOP

TURN TEXAS BLUE----Cruz only had a 2% win over Beto O'Rourke. So if we can turn Virginia and GEorgia blue we certainly should be able to turn TEXAS BLUE in 2022, and then again in 2024. There is a younger crowd in Texas and it is starting to look like Georgia. And after all the carnage from the GOP's mishandling of Covid the door seems to be openingn quite a bit

3. Austin is a big tech hub

And there are lots of transplanted young people moving there.

We can turn Texas blue!

And I would really love Beto to kick Ted's ass in 2024.

4. Solution: Amnesty for DACA immigrants

Otherwise, GOP will continue to pick on them. Grant them permanent citizens, they can vote.

5. Texas Democrats have been boots on the ground since 2008


We have been more active in GOTV drives and getting more candidates to run.

Barack Obama inspired a lot of Democratic Texans to participate in our democracy and at the state level. I was one of them a precinct chair.

But after the 2016 election and having to help 1st time voters cast their vote for the menace, I could not do so this year. He broke me. But perhaps Joe & Kamala will inspire me once again to step up to the plate and serve again.

6. I hate to admit it but every time the Texas Gov steals a company form CA to TX it helps us

They keep doing it and their population is getting a nice blue infusion from CA with each relocated job.

7. We Need Better Candidates for State-wide Office in Texas than we Did in 2020

Beto was a step in the right direction, the 2020 candidates were 2 steps back. We lost the Senate by 9.5% against a weak Cornyn. Biden did much better as did Beto in 2018
