Wendy Davis and Battleground Texas Blow Past Another Ambitious Goal

0

Over this past weekend, the Wendy Davis campaign and Battleground Texas had a really ambitious goal: 50,001 door knocks.

By Sunday night it was clear that they'd blown the doors off those goals: supporters knocked on 75,966 doors and made 91,589 calls to voters in Texas. Yowza.

Surpassing these huge voter contact goals so early in the campaign — and during the blistering heat of August — further emphasizes the enthusiasm and energy behind Wendy's campaign for governor.

While traditional media outlets are wringing their hands over whether a Democrat is competitive in Texas, Wendy and her team are consistently doing the hard work it takes to turn Texas from a non-voting state into a competitive battleground.

Here are just a few photos from the weekend of action.

Wendy visited east Texas and the suburban areas around the Metroplex to visit personally with volunteers and organizers who are working so hard to support her campaign. She received significant media coverage in the cities where she visited with volunteers and spoke about her campaign.
