AUSTIN — Facing their best political environment in a generation, Texas’ long beleaguered minority party is excited.
“It’s a great time to be a Democrat,” said state Representative Celia Israel, who runs the party’s campaign arm. “Between Greg Abbott bungling the COVID-19 response so badly and Donald Trump doing…whatever it is he’s doing, we have more material than ever. I can’t wait to see how we blow this.”
“We’ve barely said a word about the corrupt house speaker. We thought Elizabeth Warren and Bobby Francis O’Rourke would play well in Ft. Bend county. What’ll we come up with next?!?”
Following Israel’s remarks, the party announced Planned Parenthood would lead get out the vote efforts in rural counties.
