Guest Post from Julie Oliver: Why I'm supporting Blue Horizon Texas Candidates
Updated: Nov 1, 2022
You know I’m no stranger to the hard work of running for office and fighting for progressive values in tough races.
That’s why I’m so thrilled to introduce you to the 32 candidates newly endorsed by Blue Horizon Texas PAC, an organization dedicated to supporting Democratic and progressive candidates running in rural and red districts across Texas.
Change doesn’t happen overnight. To turn back Republican attacks on our reproductive rights, our voting rights, and our children’s rights to a safe, healthy learning environment—free from constant threats of gun violence or censorship of classroom discussion and the books on their libraries’ shelves, we must step up and fight everywhere.
We can’t continue to cede ground; it’s why I ran uphill races for US Congress.
And it’s why Blue Horizon Texas is investing in the long-term work to realize sustainable, transformative change—by supporting Democratic and progressive candidates running for school board and justice of the peace, for county clerk and commissioner, for state legislature and statewide office, in rural, exurban, and traditionally Republican areas.
Blue Horizon Texas PAC has endorsed Janet Dudding for Texas Comptroller, Susan Hays for Texas Ag Commissioner, and 30 Dems & progressives running for SBOE, Texas legislature, and county & local office.
Blue Horizon Texas is the only organization whose primary focus is helping candidates where there is little existing Democratic infrastructure. They are building a functional support network so these candidates can reach the diverse communities in their districts, expanding the blue horizon in Texas and getting us closer to electing leaders who better represent our communities from Lubbock to Laredo to Lufkin. Please join me in supporting Blue Horizon candidates. Donate today to help not just one or two candidates but to lift up dozens of candidates across the state, turning out more Democratic voters not just in their own races but for Beto and the rest of the statewide slate.
Still in it together! Julie Oliver two-time Democratic nominee for US Congressional District 25
