TDP Convention: A Guide to Parties with the State Party!

by: Burnt Orange Report

Thu Jun 26, 2014 at 11:00 AM CDT

Democrats across Texas are heading to Dallas today for the 2014 TDP State Convention. Enthusiasm is high coming off last night's filibuster anniversary celebration and the events held around the state to commemorate it.

This weekend, Senators Wendy Davis and Leticia Van de Putte will formally accept the nominations from the Party for Governor and Lieutenant Governor, and Democrats will celebrate their history making ticket.

Celebration is indeed one of the main orders of business this weekend, in between doing party business in terms of writing a platform that doesn't alienate 80% of the state's residents and introducing our state candidates to a wider audience.

If you're headed to Dallas, get ready to party! Below the jump, check out all of the parties scheduled for this weekend's convention, starting tonight!

If you have a party not listed here please email it to katherine@burntorangereport.com!

We believe all events to be free unless otherwise stated.
