Democrats predict Texas will turn blue in 2020


>>Reporter: YEAH. THAT’S RIGHT. AND I’M HERE ARE TOM PEREZ. YOU GOT HERE YESTERDAY.>>I DID.>>Reporter: YOU’RE THE TOP MAN FOR THIS. AND MY BIGGEST QUESTION AND I’M SURE A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT THERE, WHY HOUSTON? .>>IT’S A GREAT CITY IN A GREAT STATE. TEXAS IS AN EMERGING BATTLEGROUND. LOOK HOW WELL WITH WE DID IN 2018. HARRIS COUNTY DEMOCRATS RAN THE TABLE. I SPENT THE DAY-TO-DAY IN THE DISTRICT TALKING TO ACTIVISTS ABOUT HOW TO MAKE PROGRESS. BECAUSE THE REALITY IS RIGHT NOW, TRUMP IS UNDER WATER IN TEXAS. IF YOU LOOK AT A POLL, THE LAST POLL I SAW, 47% SAID THEY’LL VOTE DEMOCRAT. 42% FOR TRUMP. I’M HERE TO TELL YOU, WE ARE IN BATTLEGROUND TEXAS AND WE’LL CONTINUE TO INVEST. I LOVE THE CITY OF HOUSTON. THE MAYOR HAS BEEN HELPFUL AND COOPERATIVE AS WE’VE MOVED FORWARD TO THE DEBATE. I CAN’T WAIT TO BE HERE AT TEXAS SOUTHERN WITH BARBARA JORDAN AND THE GREAT TRADITION.>>Reporter: GREAT SCHOOL. AND YOU TOUCHED ON A GREAT POINT. TEXAS HAS ALWAYS BEEN PREDOMINANTLY RED. IT SEEMS IT’S SLIGHTLY SHIFTING. PEOPLE CHANGED THEIR VOTES. HOUSTON IN GENERAL, WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A LOT OF MINORITIES AND HISPANICS. THIS WILL SPEAK VOLUMES TONIGHT. .>>TEXAS IS A TREASURE TROEF OF OPPORTUNITY FOR US. AS LONG AS WE ORGANIZE IN ALL OF THE COUNTIES. THAT’S WHAT WE’RE DOING. AGAIN, EARLIER TODAY, I SPOKE TO A LOT OF FOLKS WHO HAVE VOTED FOR REPUBLICANS IN THE PAST, DEMOCRATS IN THE PAST, REPUBLICANS RECENTLY, AND NOW IN THE WORLD OF TRUMP, THEY SEE ALL THE INSTITUTIONS OF THE DEMOCRACY UNDER ATTACK. THAT’S WHY I THINK WE HAVE SUCH A SHOT. NOT ONLY IN THE PRESIDENTIAL, BUT WE NEED NINE SEATS IN THE STATE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. AND WE TAKE OVER THE HOUSE. THE PARTY CHAIR IN TEXAS IS ONE OF THE BEST PARTY CHAIRS IN THE COUNTRY. WE’LL CONTINUE TO INVEST. EVERY DOLLAR WE INVEST IN TEXAS IS WELL SPENT.>>Reporter: GOOD POINT. AND WE HAVE TEN CANDIDATES TONIGHT. IT TOOK A LOT FOR THEM TO BE HERE. ONE NIGHT, ONE STAGE. THEY’RE ALL TOGETHER. WHAT DID IT TAKE FOR THEM TO MAKE IT HERE?>>THEY HAD TO GET 2% IN AT LEAST FOUR POLLS OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS OR SO. AND THEY HAD TO DEMONSTRATE THAT THEY HAD 130,000 UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL DONORS. THE REASON WE HAVE THE DUAL REQUIREMENT IS BECAUSE IF YOU’RE GOING TO WIN THE PRESIDENCY AND THE NOMINATION AND TAKE BACK THE WHITE WHITE, YOU HAVE TO HAVE AN ABILITY TO CONNECT WITH THE GRASS ROOTS. WE SET A BAR THAT WE THOUGHT WAS NOT A WAY UP, BUT IT WASN’T A FULL COURT SHOT EITHER. TEN OF THE CANDIDATES HAVE MADE THE STAGE. WE HAVE A VERY DEEP FIELD. I HAVE GREAT RESPECT FOR ALL THE CANDIDATES. THEY’RE WORKING THEIR TAILS OFF. A DEEP BENCH. WE SHARE THE SAME VALUES. WE WANT EVERY TEXASEN TO HAVE ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE. IT’S THE DEMOCRATS WHO WANT YOU TO KEEP THE HEALTH CARE AND LOWER THE COST OF INSULIN OR WHATEVER PRESCRIPTION DRUG

    At some point the Agenda mafia will push Texas blue then its all over for the GOP. Cali, Illinois, NY and Texas, the rest of the states will not matter. LGPQTRZY will be rammed down your throat.
