 Can you help us get your neighbors to the polls this November?

Dear friend,
Just a few days ago we celebrated Wendy’s one year Filibuster. Yesterday, the Texas Democratic Party finished up the state convention in Dallas, and Wendy and Leticia have officially accepted the nomination for Governor and Lieutenant Governor!It is an exciting time to be a Democrat!

This November, we have the opportunity to take back Texas from over two decades of Republican rule. It’s not going to happen if we don’t get our voters to the polls.
From the Chairman of the Texas Democratic Party to Wendy and Leticia, the idea that Texas is not a red state but a non-voting state has been echoed continuously.
The more we have examined the data, it becomes increasingly clear that Tarrant could be a blue county.
The Democrats are here in Tarrant County, my friend! All over Tarrant County, there are registered sporadic voters who have historically voted for Democrats. These registered voters rarely vote, but when they do, they vote Democratic.If we get these voters back to the polls this November, we will take back Tarrant County.We are prepared to bring these sporadic Democratic voters back to the polls in November; our organizers and interns are working hard to make this happen!

These voters, your neighbors, are all around Tarrant County. We must get them to the polls!
Yes, they will need a little picking, prodding and persuading to get them to vote, and this is where we need you!Will you help us get them to the polls?It is going to take thousands of phone calls and door knocks to achieve this goal, and we can do it, but not without you!

Can we count you in?

If you can’t help by volunteering, any financial donation also helps our staffers and interns get our message out! If you would like to donate, please click this link. Every dollar helps!We will be printing out many more call lists and addresses of sporadic voters which calls for boxes and boxes of paper. We will also be mass printing our coordinated campaign fliers to leave at your neighbors’ doors.It is an effort worth supporting!

Wendy said it best at the convention. . .

“We can come together to fight for our promise. We can come together to summon our dreams.

We can come together … uniting with common purpose and shared values to affirm our future, to build our tomorrow. And when we do that, we will win.”


Whether you are able to  volunteer or contribute, we need your help to get these voters back to the polls!

Help us get them there and let us win this November!

Dreaming of a blue Tarrant County,
Deborah Peoples

 Help us stand for Tarrant County

Yesterday we celebrated a historic day for Texas Democrats.

A year ago, Wendy Davis successfully filibustered one of the most restrictive abortion bills in the country for 13 hours, and truly showed her willingness to stand for all the people of Texas.

We had no idea at the time that several months later she would announce her candidacy for Governor.

Her willingness to stand for what is right for our state has inspired many of the amazing candidates we have running in Tarrant County this year. These host of candidates want to stand for what is right, and they want to stand for you, just like Wendy did and continues to do.

We all know that Tarrant County has been solidly red for far too long, and we have the power to change that this year, to get the representation that we deserve.

We can’t do it alone though.

We need your help. You can stand with Wendy, and all of our Tarrant County candidates too by donating to our Coordinated Campaign.

Can you chip in $13 to represent the 13 hours that Wendy stood and showed that she was willing to fight for the voices that are so often ignored in Texas?

You can donate by clicking on this link, or the button below, and donating $13 to our coordinated campaign.

We know that with your support, our voices will finally be heard over the insiders from the Capitol Building, all the way down to our local level.

Thank you for all you’ve done, and continue to do to support our candidates.
