There's some great news re: down ballot races in TX.

Texas? Yes, TX is competitive for #NotMeUs & Our Bern-effect is real.

Last nite was rough but we need to Fight On!

Here are some highlights from TX.
@AdrBell rec'd 62% in #TX14 to move on to Gen Election for a rematch against GOP incumbent.

She'll need grassroots funding to beat the GOPer.…

One of the things @BlackWomxnFor talked to @ewarren after the #BWFWarren endorsement she spoke to use about why her decision to build an ORGANIZING campaign vs a TV AD BUY campaign was to ensure that the whole ticket was benefitting from her campaign
@BlackWomxnFor @ewarren This is important for so many reasons, obviously winning at the local, regional and state level around the country is critical for making #BigStructuralChange - but also for us it was hearing her commitment to do this down-ticket work DURING THE CAMPAIGN. #Warren2020
@BlackWomxnFor @ewarren A Presidential candidate who is only concerned with their own victory is not in the best interests of the left, of the progressive movement or of the country. Today is a good time to lift up some of the folks running for office that @ewarren has endorsed from the campaign trail.

We must remember down-ballot candidates.

This is a list of progressive/leftist congressional candidates endorsed by at least one of these groups:


Please remember:


Double check your registration at least 1 MONTH 🗓 before any election you plant to vote in.

Also, endorsements are an ongoing process
Some races have 2 different candidates endorsed by different groups, so they’re both listed.

If the pinned tweet is related to their campaign, I included it.

Now, onto the (long) list.

The @WaPo published this piece on predatory payday lenders and how they're funding Trump and some top Republicans.

You know who else they're funding? Trump's favorite Democrat, Henry Cuellar.

A THREAD👇🏾👇🏾… 1/6
Payday lenders often prey on the most vulnerable members of our communities. I know many folks in #TX28 rely on them & I live across the st from 1.

High poverty rates in TX make our "poorest citizens ripe targets for payday lending abuses" (@dallasnews). It's heartbreaking. 2/6
Meanwhile, @RepCuellar is the second-largest recipient of donations from predatory payday lenders among ALL House members this cycle. (He's taken over $16,000.)

In the 2016 cycle he took $30,400 from payday lenders and last cycle, he took EVEN MORE – $43,000 to be exact. 3/6
