Texas Democratic Women – our work has just begun and we can do it!
On Saturday, November 23rd, Letitia Van De Putte announced for Lt. Governor, joining Wendy Davis for Governor. This is a first for Texas – two women at the top of the ticket. Not only are they State Senators, they are smart, articulate, have a vision, and can win. They are for the people of Texas, not trying to see who can become the furtherest right wing crazy. Just think what a ticket we have: qualified people – Mike Collier (Comptroller); Sam Houston (Attorney General); Steve Brown (Railroad Commissioner); Jim Hogan (Ag Commissioner); John Cook (Land Commissioner) and many others who have announced but not yet filed. We will have a slate and a good one – experienced candidates, some former mayors who have walked the walk and managed cities, lawyers who can read rules and put them into action, a numbers person who knows that a balance sheet and budget looks like!
So – TDW, it is time to get the white voter cards, carry them with you. Make a list of your friends, check them off to make sure they are registered and that they go vote. As I have said – it is up to us – when women vote, Democrats win, and that includes all of the male members of TDW!
It is an exciting time and we are a part of it!
