Texas Democratic Party to Hold Rural Candidate Recruitment Events in East Texas and West Texas

Events will help TDP advance toward goal of having Democratic candidates in every legislative and congressional district in 2024

West Texas Candidate Recruitment

AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas Democratic Party is hosting rural candidate recruitment events in Tyler and Lubbock in July, with additional dates and locations to follow. 

The events, which will be in partnership with local allied organizations, will help the TDP advance toward its goal of having Democratic candidates in every legislative and congressional district in 2024.

“When we at the Texas Democratic Party say we’re going to compete from Amarillo to Zapata, we mean it,” said Texas Democratic Party Political Director Ryan Garcia. “We’re hitting the road this summer to meet with potential  candidates in rural areas of the state to make sure every Texan will have  Democratic choices on their ballots come 2024, and, more importantly, so no part of the state will have to default to electing Republican politicians whose narrow agenda would defund public schools while defending the likes of Ken Paxton.”

At the events, attendees and prospective candidates can expect:

  • Discussions with elected Texas Democrats about the day-to-day of campaigning and life on the trail
  • Keynote presentations on how to win as an underdog candidate and life as an elected representative
  • Networking with elected officials and other prospective candidates
  • Party staff and leadership on-hand to go over hands-on Party support including help with voter data, messaging, GOTV, and more.
