A note about last night’s town hall in San Antonio. It was a great event, hosted by a great Pastor who opened up his church, filled with great Texans, but was briefly interrupted by a few loud voices who do not represent #Tx21 in the slightest. (1/x)
It was interrupted allegedly on the basis of my statement(s) on Israel. But that was just an excuse, because it was then continuously & purposefully interrupted on all topics raised… Border Security, Guns, and more. This is not new. And it is expected. (2/x)
For all who stayed the duration, we had a great talk about healthcare, guns, border security, spending, natl security, & myriad topics of interest to central Texans. There was agreement & disagreement, but minus the handful of antagonists, it was productive. (3/x)

Several minutes in, @chiproytx town hall in San Antonio erupts when he brings up Omar and Tlaib Israel trip controversy. “Two options: Be respectful or leave,” Roy tells those shouting out. “I’m not going to allow you to take over this event.” #TX21
Twenty minutes in, Roy still getting interruptions, and some audience members sparring with one another, despite two efforts by pastor (his church is venue) to calm everyone down.
Amid continued outbursts from some audience members, and more efforts to calm them, Roy wraps up. He was on stage for about 34 minutes.

Today, @HouseDemocrats introduced their border supplemental bill in response to the request from @realDonaldTrump & the pressure applied by the @freedomcaucus. We are still reviewing the text of the Senate & House versions. Initial observations: (1/x) #EndBorderCrisisNow
While we all desperately want $ for humanitarian relief, Senate GOP appears to be moving a supplemental that will very likely worsen the crisis, & the House Dems’ version is worse. Both will further incentivize traffickers, cartels, & perpetuate catch & release... (2/x)
The senate and house bills provide little to no funding for additional beds for adults or families. Beds are critical for proper screening, proper care, & proper enforcement to drive down the incentives for future flow. (3/x)

Twitter, I see you're getting to know Chip Roy, the House Republican who just blocked the disaster aid package on the House floor. Here's a little introduction from someone (me) who ran as a Democrat in that seat last year. washingtonpost.com/business/econo… #tx21 1/7
Chip was the ghostwriter for Rick Perry's " Fed Up!" in which they said "Social Security is something we have been forced to accept for more than 70 years now...at the expense of respect for the Constitution" and that "By any measure, Social Security is a failure." #tx21 2/7
Last cycle, when asked at a conservative confab whether veterans benefits qualified as a "core government function," Chip refused to say yes, and instead offered the same anti-government rhethoric that he uses when talking about repealing the ACA. 3/7

BREAKING: After flipping FORTY seats from red to blue in 2018, we've officially got our sights set on THIRTY-THREE more -- and we're ready to get to work!

Take a look at our first offensive battlefield of the 2020 cycle:
Our Chair @CheriBustos is keeping her promises and wasting no time by working to expand our Democratic House Majority.
Presidential approval polls in 2020 are shaping up to be a lot like 2008 -- when Democrats continued the blue wave from the midterm. History is on our side, which means Democrats are poised to expand our House Majority even further. fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-2…

Now that @BetoORourke has almost $40 million fundraised, it's high time he actually put it to use.

He already has a great ground game. Now get on TV and correct the narrative. Take out huge blocks of airtime. Both positive AND negative ads.
There are several Cowboys games that will take place between now and the election. @BetoORourke should drop a ton of ads during those games.

He should focus ads heavily on competitive districts. #TX07. #TX21. #TX31. #TX32. A blitz of Spanish-language ads in #TX23.
Hell, with this kind of money @BetoORourke should be able to rent fleets of buses to go into poor, minority neighborhoods and shuttle people to the polls for free on every day of early voting.

He doesn't need to prioritize anymore. He can do it all. He should do it all.

.@chiproytx on @TPRSource: he literally thinks the Federal budget works like a household. This is one of the most insanely idiotic & harmful ideologies; it's the foundation of morally bankrupt austerity moves that only benefit ultra-wealthy donors. #TX21 tpr.org/post/roy-kopse…
Chip fails to understand the Fed is "issuer" of our currency (the power rested in Congress under Art. 1 Sect. 8) which means there is a fundamental difference between Fed budget & the budgets of states, cities, & households (users of the dollar). #TX21
The "balanced budget" movement is trying to convince folks we need to match Fed tax revenues w/ expenditures, but this is simply not how sovereign fiat currency works! SS, Medicare, & Medicaid have no risk of insolvency! #TX21
