There’s no reason any good Texas Democrat should celebrate our candidates’ lifelong residency on planet Earth and ability to sustain a logical argument alone! Tonight’s the night–time to get your debate on!
Yesterday, the DNC issued a press release about debate parties across the country but we’re pretty convinced that they all just wish they were here. We’re talking watch parties and lots of ’em. As in, once we started pulling this list together, we realized it’d be impossible to list all the parties across the state. Forgive us if we miss yours and please add it to the comments on our Facebook page (and don’t forget to like us!).
The debate starts at 7:30 pm. CNN is hosting and airing it. It will also be available on cnn.com.
We’re listing the bigger parties in the major cities but that does not mean that your party won’t be the best in Texas! Take a picture and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or share it on our Facebook page.
One more pro-tip: if you’re looking for a party closer to home, both the Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders campaigns have event search pages that make it easy to find a party near you. Most of the ones we looked at are open to all Democrats, but clearly there are some Feel the Bern and Hillraiser-style events out there for you diehards, in case you’re not prepared for mixed company this evening.
