On the Road With Battleground Texas

Battleground Texas is a movement built around you — regular Texans who believe that our state is worth fighting for. It’s important to us that we spend time on the ground, in your communities, talking about what the Battleground Texas movement can do for you.

On Sunday, Jeremy Bird, alongside Mayor Julian Castro and Congressman Joaquin Castro, travelled to San Antonio for our first grassroots meeting.

“Texas represents the best of this country, and it’s time for it to go blue” Mayor Castro told the crowd of nearly 300, packed into the downtown St. Anthony Hotel.

The next day, Jeremy met with a fired up, standing-room only crowd in Austin where he told them that the movement is built around our supporters — and that Republicans are counting on our inaction.

“They want you to be scared. They want me to be scared. But this isn’t a fun idea, this isn’t a theory… this is a movement to fundamentally change the face of Texas politics” Bird said.

In the coming days we’ll be announcing even more dates for grassroots meetings like these. Battleground Texas will only be successful if our grassroots remain strong. We’ll be crisscrossing the state listening to you, learning from you and building a movement you can be proud of.
