Texas Democrats unveil plan to flip the state from red to blue in 2020

The Democratic Party of Texas is laying out its plans to end decades of Republican dominance in the state, touting a substantial voter registration and turnout effort to create a blue wave of elected officials in 2020. It released its planning document Monday morning, the same week as Houston's Democratic presidential debates.

The party set a goal of registering 2.6 million Texans to vote, boosting turnout in suburban areas and putting 1,000 field organizers on the ground.

"We will win the White House, take out John Cornyn, expand our Texas congressional delegation, break the supermajority in the Texas Senate, flip the Texas House, and elect hundreds of local Democrats across the state," wrote Texas Democratic Party deputy executive director Cliff Walker.

In addition to focusing on signing up unregistered voters and increasing turnout in growingly diverse as well as reliably Democratic areas, the plan also includes a focus on voter protection. A year-round hotline will be put in place to report any cases of voting suppression, and Texas Democrats have teamed with Democratic lawyers to be ready to fight those cases.

A crux of the plan is the state party's voter registration effort, which it hopes to achieve through state-coordinated campaigns with counties, a big increase in staffing and a direct mail effort including 1.5 million mail applications. In its analysis of the 2.6 million unregistered Texans, compiled from records from the Texas secretary of state, Texas Democrats identified a number of young, diverse populations in fluid metro areas.

"Five of America's 25 fastest growing cities are in Texas," Walker wrote in the plan. "These five cities are expected to drive more than 500,000 people into Texas over the next two years, up to 300,000 registered voters. We know many of these people are coming from liberal cities throughout the country."

Many of these suburban areas voted for Democrat Beto O'Rourke when he ran for Senate in 2018. O'Rourke came within three percentage points of beating incumbent GOP Senator Ted Cruz in a state where Democrats haven't won a statewide race since 1994.

The Republican Party of Texas said O'Rourke's success with engaging voters has motivated them to launch their own voter registration and engagement efforts. A super PAC dedicated to registering Republicans, Engage Texas, has also raised close to $10 million dollars.

Texas' voting registration numbers increased by more than 694,000 between the 2016 presidential race to and the 2018 midterm elections, according to the Texas secretary of state.

"There's a lot of excitement around Beto, we want to make sure we come to 2020 with as much enthusiasm as he got," said Republican Party of Texas spokesman Sam Pohl. "We want to make sure we can counter that. I still firmly believe there's more Republicans in Texas than Democrats."

Just like when Ann Richards ran.

Signing up “unregistered” voters for democrats = signing up “undocumented” voters ... everyone knows that’s the only way they have any chance of winning, okay, that, and more blatant computer fraud.

The first two were elected to Congress, the latter was elected Governor. The fake Hispanic lost when he ran for the Senate and Abortion Barbie lost when she ran for governor. Ann Richards lost her re-election bid for governor. These three Democrats failed to advance their political careers but they did at least have some. The fake Hispanic hasn't a chance for the Presidential nomination but Abortion Barbie is running for another Congressional seat.

The Democrats ought to think about how they are going to flip back Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. In the last debate one of their leading candidates is talking about banning fracking on day one. I'm sure an argument like that goes over big in blue collar states where natural gas helps keep them warm in the winter, and employs their families at a competitive wage.

*yawn*

Newsflash - Making sure somebody is legally eligible to vote is not the same thing as "suppressing" them.

I swear there just ain't any such thing as an honest Democrat anymore.
