Impeach, remove, prosecute and expel.

Team, Donald Trump incited a terrorist attack on US soil. While I firmly believe that most actions of consequence require time and deliberation, there are moments that require immediate action. He must face immediate impeachment by the House of Representatives and removal by the Senate. Lik…

The work ahead.

Team, I’m writing to you from Savannah, Georgia, where I’m volunteering to get out the vote in the Senate runoffs, but Texas is on my mind. Ever since Republicans seized power in Texas over 20 years ago, a very small handful of cynical elites have effectively been able to keep Texans fightin…

Team, It’s a glorious day in Austin, blue sky, the air is crisp and clear, and we’re inside at home, as we have been for most of this year. In the last few weeks, I've been decompressing, taking stock, analyzing, resting, and ticking off my things-to-do list that I haven’t given my attention…

Quick update on where things stand

If you can help us raise $15,000 before the polls close at 7pm Central by rushing one last contribution to this campaign, we would be enormously grateful. Team, we just wanted to follow up on Julia's email from earlier. The polls close in less than three hours in Texas, and while you've made a …

This isn't the email I wanted to send on Election Day

But I have to. Team, this isn't the email I wanted to send on Election Day, but I have to. Here's the situation: Turnout continues to surge across the district on this final day of voting, and we have to reallocate extra resources toward poll greeting and voter protection. But rest assured, …

I'm filled with hope heading into tomorrow

A victory would send a powerful message about the future of districts like ours and this country, but we cannot let up until every last ballot is cast. I’m filled with hope heading into tomorrow, team. Without a dime of PAC money and the sheer determination of thousands of supporters who saw …

I've seen it all

Long lines. Broken machines. Voter intimidation. Folks who need a way to get to the polls. We need to prepare for it all. Team, If you've ever worked or volunteered on a political campaign, then you probably know that anything can happen on Election Day. Long lines. Broken machines. Voter int…

A final, much-needed boost

We could spend the rest of the day worrying about what could happen between now and when the polls close at 7 pm tomorrow — but that won't do anything to help us carry Julie over the finish line. Team, can you believe it? The polls open in less than 24 hours across Texas for the final day of …

539 days campaigning. 3 days to make it all count.

The money we raise today will determine how many voters our team can reach during these critical last few days. Team, We launched this campaign 539 days ago. Now, we have just 3 days to make it all count. So whatever reason brought you to Team Julie — whether it's getting big money out of pol… HQ · [email protected]

Team, can you volunteer for Julie this weekend?

103 more volunteers need to commit to making calls to voters or a safe, no-contact lit drop in the district. Can you be one of them? Team, we don't have a lot of time. Early voting has officially ended across Texas, which means we have only three days left to reach every voter across the dist…

Turnout update

All signs point to a significant upset for Trump and Roger Williams in just four days, but we can't stop now. Team, something remarkable just happened. The day after we learned voter turnout in this election had surpassed 2018 total voter turnout across Texas, we found out today (on the last…

Find the voters and get them to the polls.

We need everyone signed up to phone bank and lit drop in this last push. Team, I'll keep it super short. We're seeing record turnout in Texas. Our campaign is poised to unseat a corrupt GOP incumbent and send Julie -- an everyday Texan fighting for healthcare for every Texan, better jobs, an…

To succeed in this final phase of the campaign, we need your help to call and text voters and make sure they have a plan to vote. Team, I'll keep this brief! We have just six days left to turn the incredible momentum we see in TX-25 into votes for Julie.  Texans are already smashing turnout r…

This grassroots movement has always risen to the moment

I know it feels like our government isn't working for any of us right now. I know that it seems like you're pushing a boulder up a hill. But if enough of us get behind this boulder, that boulder's going to make it to the top. Team, like many of you, I found myself feeling both angry and sad w…

Team, we did it. We outraised Roger Williams.

This is a big deal for a people-powered campaign like ours. Team, we did it. We recently ran the numbers, and we outraised and outspent Roger Williams in the first half of October! Here's why this is such a big deal: Our campaign doesn't take a dime of PAC money, unlike our opponent. Instead,…

Our closing argument

I've been hearing "it can't be done" my whole life, but we're proving that it can be. Team, so I'll start from the beginning. I grew up really poor in Dallas. And by the time I was 17, I had dropped out of high school, run away from home, and became pregnant.  I was told, "You're never going …

Ten days to flip Texas blue

We must do more than take back our district. We have to defeat Donald Trump, flip the Senate, and grow our majority in the House. And that starts with showing up for other Texas Democrats locked in tight races. Team,  For years, pollsters and pundits convinced us that Democrats couldn't compe…

A more equitable future

In 11 days, we’re going to show the country that progressive ideas can swing the reddest of districts. Team,  Let's be clear: Medicare for All, legalizing marijuana, taxing the rich, and a Green New Deal are extremely popular, mainstream ideas — regardless of party. The polling shows it, and …
