Sean Hubbard Is The Best Candidate In The Democratic Texas U.S. Senate Primary

In the primary race for the Democratic nomination to serve in the United States Senate, I support Sean Hubbard.

(Above is Mr. Hubbard with a group of people who just realized that somebody is pointing a camera at them.)  

Mr. Hubbard is running for the seat left open by the retirement of Republican Kay Bailey Hutchinson.

Mr. Hubbard has consistently taken progressive stands in his campaign for the nomination.

Mr. Hubbard has worked hard, and has made an effort to win support all across our big State of Texas.

At age 31, Mr. Hubbard can possibly build upon on what is already a strong campaign effort as he seeks to move Texas into the 21st century. (Or even dragging Texas into the 20th century would be progress in many regards.)

My friend Harold Cook in Austin has endorsed Mr. Hubbard in his blog Letters From Texas.  Mr. Cook is a respected and forward-looking political voice in Texas, who views Mr. Hubbard as someone who can be a hopeful part of a revitalized Texas Democratic Party  in the years ahead.

Here is the website for Mr. Hubbard.

Here is the Facebook page for Mr. Hubbard. 

Primary Day is Tuesday, May 29. Early voting runs May 14-May 25.

Lissa Squiers For The Democratic Nomination In The 7th Congressional District Of Texas

In the upcoming Texas Democratic primary, I’m voting for Lissa Squiers in the 7th Congressional district.

(Above is a photo of Ms. Squiers noting something that I’m certain was important.)

The incumbent in this race is Republican right-wing extremist John Culberson.

Ms. Squiers is an energetic and progressive local Democratic leader who will work hard to win a Republican-leaning district.

When no Democrat challenged Mr. Culberson in 2010, Ms. Squiers took up the fight as a write-in.

Ms. Squiers can always be counted on for leadership and for hard work in the service of others.

I know Lissa and I trust her to advocate for all people in the 7th district with consistently progressive views,–I live in the 7th–and to give Mr. Culberson a strong challenge.

Here is the Facebook page for Ms. Squiers.
