Preparing Democratic & Progressive Candidates
in red and rural areas
In 2022, 135 Texas counties
have NO Democratic candidates.
There is no Democratic message when Democrats don’t run. Dozens of state legislative races are uncontested by Democrats. Where Democrats do run in red districts, they receive little structural support.
At Blue Horizon, we work to engage volunteers, candidates, and county parities through our individualized and state-wide support. We vet and collate resources, incubate ideas to prepare candidates, and build infrastructure and coalitions.
Part of Our solution
The Blue Horizon Community
Supporting Over 50 members running for state and Local office in red and rural districts
Many counties were gray (because no Dem candidates are running at the county-level), but mine was light blue. Because of me.
One person can make a difference.
