POWER TO THE PEOPLES
Big Texas news: in a stunning upset in the Fort Worth mayoral election on Saturday, Democrat Deborah Peoples was the top vote-getter! That means she will now face off against the anointed conservative candidate Mattie Parker in the runoff election June 5
Deborah Peoples is not only a Democrat – she’s Chair of the Tarrant County Democratic Party. In 2020, she helped flip the county blue for Biden/Harris for the first time since LBJ! So we need to get Democrats out on that crucial day, and make her the first Black mayor of Fort Worth.
This victory on Saturday was fueled by all of YOU and your phone banks, texts, and postcards! And now we need to get Deborah across the finish line – so please sign up for a GOTV phone bank or GOTV postcards into Fort Worth.
And remember – we can expect super low turnout for this election, so every single Democratic vote we secure makes a gigantic difference! Let’s DO this!

147 Republicans voted to overturn an American election. We’ve found 3 million unregistered Democrats in their districts. Let’s register every single one we can – and make sure these traitors lose their seats in a landslide.
We want to release our registration Kraken on two traitor targets: Richard Hudson of North Carolina and Carlos Gimenez of Florida. Can you chip in and help us unleash the full force of our digital organizing on every single unregistered likely Democrat in their districts? And remember – by adopting Richard or Carlos, you’re helping defeat bonus traitors too! In 2022, every single Democrat we register in North Carolina will help us take the Senate seat Richard Burr is leaving open. And every Dem in Florida will help us beat Governor Ron DeSantis as well as Senator Marco Rubio!
Traitor Richard Hudson (NC-08)Goal: $7,548; Progress: $3,244
Traitor Carlos Gimenez (FL-26)Goal: $5,106; Progress: $3,206
Phone Bank to Unseat Traitor Carlos Gimenez & Marco Rubio (COMING SOON, REALLY) – and calling Spanish speakers – we need you!
