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!

Burnt Orange Report Endorses Gilberto Hinojosa for Texas Democratic Party Chairman

by: Burnt Orange Report

Sun Jun 22, 2014 at 05:00 PM CDT

Burnt Orange Report proudly throws its unanimous support behind Gilberto Hinojosa and urges our delegates to re-elect him to another term as TDP Chairman.

Hinojosa has made great strides to bring the TDP forward through expanding staff, raising funds, increasing transparency and engagement, and working hard to give Texas a Democratic Party we deserve.

Over the past year and a half, the reinvigorated Texas Democratic Party has been at the forefront of efforts to make Texas a more competitive state in statewide and down-ballot elections, and played a crucial role in amassing support last summer during the special sessions. This vigor and energy is due in large part to the tone set by the Chairman and enthusiasm he brings to his job.

Read more about what Hinojosa has done at the TDP below the jump, and check out our staff photo in support of the Chairman!
