Texas Democrats Undertook Their Largest-Ever Voter Contact Push



With polls suggesting a tight race between Joe Biden and President Donald Trump in the Lone Star State, the Texas Democratic Party has kicked its voter-mobilization efforts into hyperdrive.

Working with get-out-the-vote group Vote Save America, the Texas Dems contacted more than 2 million voters over the weekend via phone calls and texts — its largest-ever number for such a weekend push.

The party also kicked off a major fundraising effort this week with a goal of sending 815,000 mail-in voting applications to eligible Texans for the November election. The party already sent out 900,000 applications in advance of the 2020 primary.

That total of 1.7 million potential mail-in voters is most for an election cycle in the party’s history, according to officials.
