DSCC in Texas

Some Texas folks are upset that the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee (DSCC) endorsed MJ Hegar for U.S. Senator yesterday. Former Congressman Chris Bell, H-Town City Council Member Amanda Edwards, Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez, and State Senator Royce West, all Texas U.S. Senate Democratic Party Primary candidates, expressed their displeasure in the DSCC’s endorsement.

I have to say way to go to the Texas Democratic Party for sending out vote-by-mail applications for 2020 to those Dems 65-years or older. Nice job.

Christmas Day is eight days away.
