Swing Texas Left is a group of volunteers working together to elect Democrats in the Houston area by organizing to register new voters, increase voter turnout, and educate people about down ballot races.
We worked very hard to help elect Lizzie Fletcher in CD7 in 2018 and want to expand that effort for 2020 to include other competitive races in our area, especially for Texas House of Representatives.
We are supporting the national Swing Left Super State strategy, which identifies Texas as one of the 12 target states for the 2020 cycle.The national Swing Left organization started in 2017 with the objective of flipping the U.S. House by encouraging people who do not live in competitive districts to help in the actual battleground areas. This cycle the national Swing Left is focusing on votes in the 12 Super States for President, U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, and for State Legislatures to prevent further Republican gerrymandering.
Swing Texas Left will be working specifically to support flipping Texas House Districts (HDs) 134 and 138, to turn out more Democratic voters in HD 146, and to protect HDs 135, 132 and Congressional District 7.
