Texas HDCC Partners With Beto O’Rourke Volunteer Group To Expand Voter Outreach
Austin, TX – The Texas House Democratic Campaign Committee will partner with Powered By People, a grassroots voter mobilization organization led by former Congressman Beto O’Rourke, to reach out to voters in targeted State House Districts.
“I am excited to announce the next phase of our campaign to flip the Texas House by expanding our capacity to contact voters,” said HDCC Chairwoman Celia Israel. “Our candidates are running people-focused campaigns and this partnership will dramatically increase our outreach to voters across the state.”
The month-long, joint effort aims to contact half a million Texas voters in a series of volunteer events between August 31 and September 30.
“I am proud to partner with the Texas HDCC to engage hundreds of thousands of voters in these targeted State House districts,” O’Rourke said. “This effort, run by Texans reaching out to fellow Texans, is how we will win the Texas House and change the future of this state.”
Powered By People is a grassroots movement formed to lead the largest Democratic voter turnout program in Texas history.
The Texas HDCC leads the effort to win control of the Texas House by flipping seats from red to blue, while protecting incumbent Members.
