Here in TX21, after 30+ years of Republican “representation” under Lamar Smith, we have the once-in-a-generation opportunity to choose a Democrat to represent us.
Voting in the Democratic primary is critical. Yet a phenomenon exists wherein Democrats vote in the Republican primary. One reason given is that doing so represents an attempt to select a “moderate” Republican to run against the Democrat in the general election. Another reason stated is that in TX21’s Hill Country counties, there are often no Democrats running in local county elections.
Daniel Cohen of Indivisible Houston wrote this compelling post about why Democrats must NEVER vote in a Republican primary. This goes for all you Independents too. We are at a critical juncture in our country and our progressive voices must be heard at the polls on primary election day.
Early voting for the primary election starts February 20. Election day is March 6.
