(1/6) Thank you again to all who supported my campaign. I've been fighting to turn Texas, and TX06 blue, for a while now. I thought the special election would be a great opportunity. I was wrong.
(2/6) The splintering of Dem votes among 10 candidates, alongside massive Republican turnout, resulted in a Democratic shutout. This district is tough - it's rated an R+6 by Cook Political Report.
(3/6) On Saturday, Republican candidates got 62% of the vote to 38% for Democrats (R+25). All the things I thought would motivate Democrats, such as the attempted violent overthrow of a legitimate election result, along with Snowmaggedeon
(4/6) (both of which demonstrate the GOP's quest for power and failure to serve voters), failed to get our voters out. I'm sounding the alarm bell: If Democrats don't organize and prepare, 2022 could be a major setback to our gains of recent years.
(5/6) Following my loss by 354 votes, I remain as committed to helping Texans have representation that reflects our needs, values and future despite gerrymandering and renewed attempts of voter suppression.
(6/6) I plan to continue my professional work as a communications advisor and am looking for new volunteer opportunities to help turn Texas blue.
