CNN reports Texas is "no longer Solid Republican"

Democrats in Texas are fired up for their candidates -- including bold progressive Beto O'Rourke -- and have momentum! Chip in $3 now to help Beto O'Rourke defeat Ted Cruz!

Turn on images to see this headline.

There is huge news coming out of Texas.

"Beto O'Rourke is giving Ted Cruz a run for his money in the Texas Senate contest," according to CNN.

In fact, Beto is doing so well that CNN reports Texas is "no longer Solid Republican."

If we keep the momentum, Beto can pull off a HUGE win -- not only forcing Ted Cruz out of the Senate, but replacing him with a progressive voice. From Texas!

PCCC members have already donated tens of thousands to Beto O'Rourke's campaign to defeat Ted Cruz. Will you chip in $3 now to help him keep his momentum heading into the primary?

His grassroots-powered, progressive campaign is connecting with voters because he is going directly to them -- visiting 223 of 254 Texas counties so far -- to talk about the kitchen-table issues that matter to everyday people.

Because he refuses to take PAC money, voters know Beto isn't beholden to big corporations and powerful interests, and his huge fundraising haul from individual donors proves it:

CNN REPORTS: "Beto O'Rourke is giving Ted Cruz a run for his money in the Texas Senate contest. The Democratic underdog from El Paso outraised the first-term Republican senator and former presidential candidate by $1.5 million -- $2.3 million to $800,000 -- from the beginning of 2018 through mid-February. That impressive fundraising haul comes after O'Rourke also outpaced Cruz in the closing quarter of 2017, $2.4 million to $1.8 million."

Texas Democrats are energized about this campaign. The Guardian reports "early votes are up 93% on 2014 in the largest counties." This is a big indicator of high turnout -- possibly a surge -- in November.

We may be in for a historic win in Texas. Beto's voter enthusiasm, fundraising victories, and Trump's low approval ratings -- a recent Gallup poll shows 54% of Texans disapprove of Trump -- prove it's possible.

Let's make history. With the help of PCCC members across the nation, a true progressive like Beto O'Rourke can defeat Sen. Ted Cruz.

Chip in $3 now to help Beto continue to build his momentum and defeat Ted Cruz in November.

Thanks for being a bold progressive.
