Democratic Campaign Manager Terrysa Guerra Profiled in New York Times, Texas Tribune

by: Katherine Haenschen

Fri Mar 22, 2013 at 09:15 AM CDT

A tremendous Democratic campaign manager in Texas got her due in the New York Times today, in a well-deserved profile that sums up a pretty incredible past year and a half.

It's great to see Terrysa Guerra -- who in 2012-2013 worked on Rep. Chris Turner's primary win, and managed Senator Wendy Davis's critical re-election andSenator Sylvia Garcia's special election to SD-6 -- garner this attention for all of her tremendous hard work. The human talent and capitol that goes into campaigns such as those of Turner, Davis, and Garcia is a huge part of their eventual success, and it's great to see Terrysa's amazing bad-assery getting recognized in our nation's paper of record.

Go read the profile in the Texas Tribune or the New York Times and share it with those annoying nay-sayers who think Texas Democrats don't have anything to be proud of, and then get busy like Terrysa has in working hard to turn this state around. And while politics can still be a bit of a boy's club, it's pretty awesome that here in Texas, the best man on the ground is a woman!

As the Lone Star Project said in an email this morning, "When Democrats look back in a cycle or two and consider how our party recovered and returned new responsible leadership to Texas, it's very likely Terrysa will have played a key role."

It's easy for lazy folks in the media to write off the efforts of Texas Democrats, but when you look at the 2012 cycle, and our big wins in Wendy Davis, Pete Gallego, the legislative seats we picked up, and major local races around the state, it's clear that when we have strong candidates with sufficient funding and talented staff, Democrats can and do win. Terrysa brings the "talented staff" part of the equation in a major way, and I am sure she will only continue winning major races and electing Democrats who stand firm for our progressive values.

As someone posted on twitter already - a hope Terrysa has increased her billable rate.
