Dear Travis County Democrats,
We are excited about our upcoming JBR dinner, but it’s not the only exciting thing happening on January 28, 2014. The runoff election for the special election in House District 50 to replace Representative Mark Strama will also be held that day. We need your help to ensure this seat remains in Democratic hands.
Long-time Travis County Democratic Party activist Celia Israel ran an impressive campaign and earned a spot in the runoff election against a GOP opponent, and she has now been endorsed by her Democratic former opponents, Jade Chang Sheppard and Rico Reyes. Governor Rick Perry is counting on the late January election to give the GOP a chance to pick up this seat, but together we can ensure Celia has the support she needs to win.
The TCDP is joining with the Celia Israel Campaign and the South Austin Democrats, Austin Tejano Democrats, and Capital Area Progressive Democrats for a Unity Holiday Party. Read More »
