Capital Area Democratic Women
Travis County had a great night March 1st! Three women won races outright that were expected to go to a runoff: Margaret Moore for District Attorney was in a three-way race, Sally Hernandez for Sheriff faced three challengers, and Gina Hinojosa for TX House District 49 was running with six other candidates. All were open seats, and attracted numerous candidates, but these three women came away with over 50% on election night.
Jan Soifer won the bench of the 345th District Court, and the very next day she was in DC defending women’s right to reproductive freedom before the Supreme Court as co-counsel in Whole Woman’s Health v Hellerstedt! Jan had to leave for DC before the election returns were in, but what a great reason to miss your own watch party!
