Project Guardrail: Texas 2020
Don’t count Texas out for a Senate pickup. Trump and Biden are in a dead heat signaling that the Lone Star State is evolving into a presidential battleground which is a plus for Democrats. Keep in mind that Beto O’Rourke almost beat Ted Cruz in 2018 and the Democrats have a strong candidate in MJ Hegar.
Trump’s botched pandemic response has created a potential opening in both U.S. Senate and House races according to recent polling which has revealed that the coronavirus pandemic has had a pronounced impact on Texas politics, with state and local leaders trusted more than President Trump. The president’s handling of the crisis has cratered.
The race for US Senate is wide open (polling 46/47) with John Cornyn and state Republicans showing significant vulnerabilities. It is an enormous opportunity for Democrats.
Key Target :
2018 U.S. Senate Election
Texas Senate Election
Winning here would be big!
How we take back Texas: go full throttle
Texas in changing becoming more diverse and more education each and eery day. Beto O'Rourke proved this with his narrow loss to Republican Ted Cruz in 2018. Texas voters are independent-minded, a quality that is occasionally nettlesome for Republicans and has produced quirky results. Here is how MJ Hegar can win:
First, Hegar needs resources ASAP so that he can finish filling out his core media and GOTV efforts.
Second, Hegar needs to MAXIMIZE turnout among voters latinos and voters of color.
Third, Hegar needs to increase the Democratic margin in urban and suburban counties that supported Democrat Beto O'Rourke's 2018 campaign.
She needs to bank as many early votes as is humanly possible. (You can learn more about Texas GOTV by clicking 👉 HERE)
MJ Hegar – is certainly one of us. She has the ‘right stuff’ and understands how the influence of ‘big money’ has destroyed people’s trust in government. She can win, but not without your help.
Winning Texas would mark significant progress from Democrats at all levels. We will all need to pull together to get it done.
Cornyn is horrific on healthcare. He is literally working every day to take away Texan's protections for pre-existing conditions.
Donald Trump and his party will do everything they can to spread misinformation, but TakeItBack.Org's band of information elves will be pushing back.
