0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Last week, we rolled out our Burnt Orange to Blue fundraising drive, to support the candidates in must-win races across Texas. Today, you have a chance to vote your favorite Democratic legislative candidate into that list, and help them win $500 from BOR PAC!

Choose from one of the twenty races below that we're watching this cycle, and vote for your favorite candidate to win $500 and be added to the Burnt Orange to Blue fundraising page!

We selected these 20 candidates based on the competitiveness of their races, determined by 2008 and 2010 election results, past campaigns, and other local factors. Now, you tell us who most deserves a cool $500 in their bank account by voting for your favorite Democrat and encouraging your friends to do likewise.

From Democrats running to reclaim their seats lost in 2010 to exciting newcomers with bold visions for Texas to stalwart members of our Democratic caucus, there are 20 great choices for you to pick from. And no matter who wins, know that the funds from BOR PAC and Burnt Orange to Blue will help us increase our seats in the Legislature and bring us one step closer to taking back our state!

But wait, there's more! BOR PAC is putting up not one, but two $500 donations!

The top two vote-getters will each receive a $500 check, and be added to the Burnt Orange to Blue fundraising page. That means there's twice as much of a reason for you to vote and share this page with your friends

The contest will run until 11:59 p.m. Tuesday August 21. Vote early, and share often!

Contest is over. Congrats to our winners, Donna Howard and Ann Johnson!

    Carol Kent is our best chance to pick up a state house seat in North Texas. She was also a great state representative when she served previously. That is why I voted for Carol!
