About the Event
In the next installment in our Former Candidate Conversations Webinar Series, Blue Horizon Texas Co-Founder and Executive Director Stephanie Phillips will interview 2018 Texas House candidate Samantha Fields. Sam was born and raised in Lubbock, Texas. In 2018, she ran for Texas House District 84, the first Democrat to do so in several cycles, and ended the race with 39.8% of the total votes, the highest percentage for any Democrat in a partisan race in the district in over three decades and raised only around $20,000 total.
Along with her work in political organizations like Our Revolution, Texas Democratic Women of the South Plains, Lubbock Area Young Dems, and Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas, Samantha also served on the Board of Directors for Lubbock Community Theatre. She now lives in Las Cruces, New Mexico, working for Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains as a Campaign Organizing Specialist.
