We're moments away from the only scheduled debate between Beto O'Rourke & Gov. Greg Abbott. Like many Texans, we've got questions. #TxGovDebate

🧵Here are 5 questions we'd like to see answered by Abbott in the next hour: 1. Abortion is now effectively banned in Texas, yet some legislators (*cough cough* Rep. Briscoe Cain) want to propose even more new anti-abortion laws in 2023. Abbott — can and should Texas go any further on this issue?

🧵 Greg Abbott is demonizing immigrants and distracting from his failures with cruel border tactics. Here's our full statement on his announcement from today:

“Whether from Ukraine or Central America, seeking asylum is a human right." #txlege 2/ "Gov. Abbott’s ‘Operation Lone Star’ at the border is a total failure, yet he wants to double-down with the kind of activity that is ineffective and is demoralizing troops." #txlege #AbbottFailedTexas

THREAD: We're keeping track of the Democrats and progressives who have filed to be on the ballot for the 2020 primary! Here's our list so far ⬇️

#txlege #txsen #2020Election… 2/ TX has been trending Democratic for years, and it’s because of the work of organizers & advocates. Because of them, 2020 is a possible tipping point!

We can turn TX blue, but it won’t happen without even more work from even more progressives. #txlege #txsen #2020Election
