"Our movement has shown that the tide is turning in North Texas as more and more bold progressives run for office," said Karla Palomares, a co-chair for Our Revolution North Texas. "We are out organizing special interests and the status quo, and this November we’ll be closer to achieving a ‘people over profits’ era in politics."
"Our organizing work with fellow progressives during every election cycle shows the power of talking to every voter on progressive issues that win," said Kevin Patterson, a co-chair with Our Revolution North Texas. "It was the work our volunteers did in DFW at the doors and on phones to bring our candidates to the next stage of making progressive change locally! We are looking forward to great results soon in the upcoming elections!"
Early voting for the May 7th election starts Monday, April 25th. Early voting for the May 24th primary runoff election starts May 16th.
Our Revolution North Texas is dedicated to organizing a political revolution strong enough to challenge the structural forces that threaten our survival as a society. Together, we are building a national grassroots network of powerful local groups who are fighting to win progressive issue fights, elect progressive champions, transform the Democratic party and get big money out of politics.
