Post-midterm election thoughts


This is just the beginning.
We have forever changed Texas.
I’m sad but mostly I’m just ready to get back to work because I love this state and the people who live here.
Beto ran his campaign that focused on all people in Texas. He travelled to all 254 counties to hear the concerns and questions of everyone in those counties whether they were Democrat, Republican, or Independent. He treated everyone with respect and ran a campaign that was based on hope rather fear.
I’ve been thinking about what I wanted to say to those who voted for Ted Cruz, especially those who I personally know and it’s this: I will continue to fight for you no matter how you voted.
To friends in education, whether you voted for O’Rourke or Cruz, I believe you deserve to paid fairly and treated with respect. I will continue to fight for you.
To friends struggling to pay medical bills or who haven’t even seen a. doctor in years because they can’t afford to, whether you voted for O’Rourke or Cruz, I believe that you have the right to affordable medical care. I will continue to fight for you.
To friends with children, whether you voted for O’Rourke or Cruz, I believe your children have the right to a quality education free from the fear of violence and hate. I will continue to fight for you.
I know I’m not alone in this. The infrastructure created by this campaign, the 400 strong field team and the thousands of trained volunteers, along with the hope and enthusiasm will remain and continue to put in the necessary work. I’m so grateful to have worked alongside so many wonderful, smart, and kind people. know every single person who was a part of this team will go on do awesome things.
To quote Beto — I’m so fucking proud of you guys.
