Austin, TX -On Tuesday, Texas Democrats finished in first place in every major contested race across the state of Texas. From Dr. Eliz Markowitz in Texas House District 28 to Lorraine Birabil and James Armstrong in Texas House District 100 to Anna Eastman in House District 148 to Mayor Sylvester Turner in the Houston Mayoral race, Tuesday was a great night for Texas Democrats across the state.
More by the numbers:
Texas Democratic Party Executive Director Manny Garcia issued the following statement: 'In elections across the state, Texans voted for Democrats. Our Democratic contenders are in a strong position to win all of these crucial runoff elections. Our work here is just the beginning.
'To protect quality schools, preserve affordable access to healthcare, and create a thriving and diverse Texas economy, we must elect more Texas Democrats. Victory is in our grasp and we won't stop until we seize this moment.'
The Texas Democratic Party will invest heavily in the December 2019 runoff elections to support these races.
