The Democratic Party of Texas is laying out its plans to end decades of Republican dominance in the state, touting a substantial voter registration and turnout effort to create a blue wave of elected officials in 2020. It released its planning document Monday morning, the same week as Houston's Democratic presidential debates.
The party set a goal of registering 2.6 million Texans to vote, boosting turnout in suburban areas and putting 1,000 field organizers on the ground.
"We will win the White House, take out John Cornyn, expand our Texas congressional delegation, break the supermajority in the Texas Senate, flip the Texas House, and elect hundreds of local Democrats across the state," wrote Texas Democratic Party deputy executive director Cliff Walker.
In addition to focusing on signing up unregistered voters and increasing turnout in growingly diverse as well as reliably Democratic areas, the plan also includes a focus on voter protection. A year-round hotline will be put in place to report any cases of voting suppression, and Texas Democrats have teamed with Democratic lawyers to be ready to fight those cases.
A crux of the plan is the state party's voter registration effort, which it hopes to achieve through state-coordinated campaigns with counties, a big increase in staffing and a direct mail effort including 1.5 million mail applications. In its analysis of the 2.6 million unregistered Texans, compiled from records from the Texas secretary of state, Texas Democrats identified a number of young, diverse populations in fluid metro areas.
"Five of America's 25 fastest growing cities are in Texas," Walker wrote in the plan. "These five cities are expected to drive more than 500,000 people into Texas over the next two years, up to 300,000 registered voters. We know many of these people are coming from liberal cities..."

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is working harder to flip the state from Red to Blue by supporting gun legislation that would block private party sales of firearms.
“This will be the biggest voter fraud in history. we better not get complacent. “
The Republicans won’t fight it.
Which is why Dems need to import as many illegal aliens as possible into the United States and ship them to red states..notice when illegals come here the Dems dont say “Send them to California, New York, Oregon” of course not, to states like Alabama, Texas, Georgia, etc..to permanently change the voter base, give them all food stamps, welfare, and free health care and they will never ever lose another election, wont be a point to even having one
Democrats, establishment Republicans, globalists, and the media have joined forces to make this happen.
All those people joined forces to have a stupid overgrown teenybopper damn near take out Ted Cruz?
Well isnt THIS special
Yep. Post of the day.
Beto got a lot of huge donations from Hollywood first time around and outspent Cruz 9:1 and still lost by a good margin...
Don’t believe all this “Texas is in play” nonsense. A lot of Texans that are conservative don’t even both voting...but that needs to change so we can win the popular vote as well.
Also, in California...conservatives need to vote, even though they will probably lose the state.
“Well isnt THIS special”
Bless their hearts!
notice this is the second article today from a different LW source about flipping Texas?? the criminal liberal media has received their marching orders:
Booming Texas Economy May Usher in a Democratic Win in 2020 [Bloomberg Link Only]
We need to all be aware, that the demographics of America have been changing. Texas is changing but almost everywhere in America is seeing these changes to some degree.
Republicans/conservatives need to chip away at the Democrat advantage among members of the various ethnic/racial minority groups.
Some polls suggest that Trump has made some inroads among black men, and Hispanics. This is good news for 2020. But in 2024 and beyond, will Republican candidates be able to retain such growth among minority voters? Especially considering that the minority population continues to grow in proportion to the total.
They intend to use citizens of other countries to outvote the citizens of this country.
Not even our great-great-great-great grandchildren will see Texas turn Blue.
What you suggest will not happen. There will be no minorities leaving the Left in any significant way.
Trump is the last Republican President. It’s best everyone realize it.
“All those people joined forces to have a stupid overgrown teenybopper damn near take out Ted Cruz?”
I voted (again) for Cruz, but, trust me, it was a tough call, given Cruz’s Convention antics, regarding having to wait in line to finally vote (early).
I won’t have that problem with Trump - I’ll wait 2 hours for that privilege (providing he holds on immigration and gun control).
Bless their hearts.
I give them a 50/50 chance. Texas is dying by a 1000 cuts. Texas will be the prize that will basically break America’s back. The GOP will never win the Presidency again.
the “Illegal Alien” vote that they’ve been catering to plus the mestastacizing immigrates from failed Blue states are their tools.
