Two weeks ago at the Arlington Republican Club, a Tea Party Republican announced that he will run against me in 2016. This will be the first time I have faced a Republican opponent in District 101, and I need your help.
I’m not surprised that they’re going after me. After all, I have taken on the Tea Party and their dangerous ideas for our state over and over again. While they seek to grow their power by dividing Texans, I have worked to make Texas a state where every family can succeed.
I believe we do that through strong public schools, access to affordable health care and making smart investments in transportation infrastructure and higher education. And I’ll continue to fight to grow our local economy in North Texas, work to expand transportation options for our citizens and crack down on predatory lending. Those are the priorities of District 101, and I think they’re the priorities of most Texans.
Yes, this is a Democratic district, but even with the numbers on my side and my proven track record of working hard for Arlington and Grand Prairie, I am not going to take this challenge lightly.
To make sure I stay in the Texas House, I need your support.
So, please join me on Thursday, November 19th in Arlington as I officially kick off my 2016 campaign. Scroll down for more details and then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to add your name to my growing list of supporters.
Together, we will win this election.
Thanks in advance for your continued support and I hope to see you on the 19th!
