could u 'reflect' on the Soros/Beto alumni strategy of ignoring Tarrant County.....it no longer feels like a write off with R self inflicted wounds of Children's heath care retreat and the Ukraine vote.

call me naive but i think an awful lot of Lockheed/Bell/JNAS/aviation guys and gals might just think that it is un-american and hard on their paychecks to vote against Ukraine funding

There is something that Moms For Democracy is coming out with soon. I can't spill the beans yet, but it will help up.

Texas Democrats need to pay attention in the panhandle as well. There is a growing movement in the party. Our citizens are in huge healthcare deserts due to the vast rural areas here and lack of OB/GYNs in many of the Panhandle’s small towns and communities. Amarillo, the major healthcare center for the panhandle does not have enough pediatricians and OB/GYNs. To say women are pissed is an understatement. The rural areas are loosing their voice in the school vouchers now that Four Price has decided not to run. We need to focus on and throw support for Tim Gassaway (D) running for house seat 87. He is facing Amarillo’s own oligarch, Alex Fairly’s daughter, 25 yr old Caroline Fairly. Tim Dunn and his PAC sure love Alex’s money and he, Greg Abbott, Ken Paxton and Dan Patrick (Texas own 3 stooges) have endorsed her. They also like Alex’s money. Oh and let me add the Panhandle wildfires and the poor response by agriculture’s own Sid Miller who told a resident to go jump in the lake and he was not grateful. The Texas Panhandle is ripe for change.

I'll look into it. I think a the biggest problem in the panhandle is that Hispanic communities are not turning out to vote. If we can change that substantially, then the panhandle looks like a completely different place

The Hispanic community is a hard community. This is what a Hispanic women’s activist has told me. The families tend to vote for whoever their grandfather or father tells them to vote for. With the population being heavily catholic, many will do what the Catholic Church tells them to do.
