One Short Race, One Long Awaited Change

In an unprecedented event since the district was gerrymandered in 1992, a Republican could represent Texas House District 125!

Republican Fred Rangel made it into a runoff in the February 12th special election to fill the vacated seat. Not only that–he won almost twice as many votes as the next closest contender. (37.91% to 19.49%)

Now the runoff election date has been set: March 12th.
Early voting runs March 4th-8th.

This race has already been compared by pundits to the upset accomplished by our Republican now-Senator Pete Flores in his 2018 special election. With a super-low turnout expected, every single vote and, more importantly, every single volunteer can change the outcome of this election.
Let’s help make this another praiseworthy win for Republicans. Whether you can only spend one hour or if you can spend one day, please help however you can, phoning people from home or block walking or posting.

We hope you can join us at his campaign headquarters
6510 Bandera Rd.
This Thursday evening, February 28th, 2019
Come at 5:00 PM if you can, or as soon as you can make it.

Have Issues? Get Onto the Capitol Fast Track.

Thursday November 29, 2018 Event

Most of us have a few issues that we care strongly about. Here, among friends and good food, we are going to learn how to effectively advocate to the Texas legislature about the issues and bills we care about, getting ready for the legislative session opening in January. Get laws you care about into the passing lane.

Augie’s Alamo City BBQ Steakhouse

909 Broadway St, San Antonio, TX, 78215

6:30-8:30 PM

Become familiar with how the process works, how to find out when hearings for bills are scheduled, how to sign up to testify to a legislative committee as a witness (anyone can), look up who is sponsoring and who is opposing bills on your subject, and how to effectually weigh in on the topic. Professional lobbyists are not the only people who can influence legislative outcomes.

Rachel Malone, Texas Director of Gun Owners of America, is well versed in the process, and will teach us the little-known ins and outs of effective legislative advocacy.

This training is free to attend, Republicans of all ages are welcome, just buy your own food and drink from the menu.
