“This week, my life was threatened as I was pumping gas and meeting fellow East Texans. He gestured his active gas pump toward me and said “I ought to hose you down and set you on fire”. Instead of ceding this election to hateful people, I’m going to gas up again and hit the road. I’m traveling to all 17 counties within TX-1, organizing multiple events, canvasses and voter registration drives per day, throughout the remainder of September and October.
“From Hemphill to Texarkana, from Mount Pleasant to Henderson, folks need to see that we won’t be deterred. And they need to see that, even after a dangerous event, I am more inspired than ever to put in the work and earn their votes. It’s time to bring opportunity and prosperity to East Texas.”
