Presidential Election – Nov 5th, 2024

Texas is a fairly solid RED state that Trump won in 2016 and in 2020. Biden has little to no chance of winning this state in 2024.

In Texas, it is safe to vote for a third-party candidate in the general election, without fear that this will help get Trump back into the White House. He will win this state anyway.

If you want your vote to count as a vote to survive, vote for Jill Stein on November 5th! Jill stands for a ceasefire in Gaza, negotiations in Ukraine, an end to warmongering with China, the abolition of nuclear weapons and a full-scale mobilization to address the climate emergency.

Vote Swapping

Are you willing help ensure that Trump does not get back into the White House by voting for a third-party candidate in exchange for someone in a purple state voting for Biden (instead of their preferred third-party candidate)? If you’d like to know more, click here.

Senate Race

Mary Jennings Hegar is the Democratic challenger running against incumbent Republican Senator, John Cornyn. This was not considered a seat the Democrats could win until polls in early October showed Hegar rapidly closing the gap with a real chance of beating Cornyn.

In response, John Cornyn has tried to distance himself from Donald Trump. However, according to the fivethirtyeight congressional vote tracker, 95.1% of Cornyn’s votes in the Senate have been in line with President Trump’s positions. In reality, a vote for John Cornyn is a vote for Mitch McConnell maintaining control of the Senate and preventing a Biden administration from enacting most of its legislation.

A vote for Mary Jennings Hegar is a vote for survival!

House Races

The best we can hope for in 2020 at the Presidential and Senate levels is to get rid of Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell so that we will at least survive the next four years. But in the medium term, we need to elect politicians who support the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, the Nuclear Ban Treaty and other real, sustainable solutions to the global threats facing us all.

Luckily, we already have over 100 such politicians in the House of Representatives. We need to make sure they get re-elected, and we need to elect more of them!

If you live in US Congressional District 10, you have an opportunity at this election to vote for a new progressive candidate for the House of Representatives, Mike Siegel!

Texas District 10 – Mike Siegel for US Congress

Mike Siegel believes in healthcare for all, protecting the right to vote, education as the key, a Green New Deal, expanding labor rights, police and criminal reform, housing for all, gun reform, LGBTQIA rights and putting an end to crushing college debt.

And if you live in one of these other US Congressional Districts, you have an incumbent Democrat who is already a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus to support for re-election!

District 16 – Escobar

District 18 – Jackson-Lee

District 29 – Garcia
