Since #COVID19 began wreaking havoc on our state, my opponent @chiproytx has pushed dangerous and extreme views about the virus. He downplayed the crisis, pushed for reopening without safeguards and ignored the advice of health experts. I'm calling him out.
@chiproytx Congressman @chiproytx even voted against relief for Texans impacted by the virus. Don’t take my word for it — below are the worst examples of his dangerous and misleading views, straight from him.
@chiproytx .@chiproytx opposed @GovAbbott’s lockdown orders, suggesting people ignore those orders & calling for the state to reopen — long before public health experts said it was advisable. ImageImageImage

New at @CookPolitical: House rating changes in 20 districts, all towards Democrats. I can’t recall the last time we moved so many races at once, let alone in the same direction.
More @CookPolitical: for the first time this cycle, Democrats have at least as good a chance of picking up House seats as Republicans on a net basis.…

As promised, here’s a thread on #PipelineChip, aka @chiproytx aka @Repchiproy, the stinkeroo of a GOP Congressman currently soiling the carpets in #TX21 (and being vigorously challenged by @wendydavis). This will be long so, as Chip would say, saddle up!
NB: I’m not accusing Chip of anything illegal here. All kinds of corrupt behavior, on both sides of the border, are perfectly legal. Certainly Chip isn’t doing much that @sentedcruz isn’t also doing. Chip is just noisier.
Chip IS guilty of shameless hypocrisy, in his fetishization of cartel violence & his lip service to values like property rights. He has enabled cartels at the highest levels—& jeopardized the life, health and safety of many people —for his personal enrichment & political power.

I’m a South Austinite since 1985, been eating at @kerbeylanecafe since I got here, and I have NEVER seen them do something this short-sighted and thoughtless to their customers: Image
That’s Kerbey Lane’s CEO Mason Ayer, giving a warm and obsequious shout-out to Chip Roy, the GOP trainwreck of a Congressman who has united Austin's TX-21 residents in a two-year effort to remove him from office.
A quick refresher on Chip’s legislative record: he blocked federal disaster aid for the sake of a photo op, voted against the Violence Against Women Act, ranted that big pharma CEOs should “make a lot more money,” and spreads Russian disinformation. Image

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.… #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 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.…

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.
