First, we want to thank those who followed and supported our campaign. We learned a lot in this campaign and are eager to move to the next phase of Texas Reason. Our next phase begins with reaching out and encouraging others to reach out to us. Whether you are current or former candidate, in academia & working in policy research, in the private sector and have specific observations/criticisms about the party, a Policy Think Tank, a county Democratic chair, a College or Young Democrat group, a grassroots organization, or a concerned citizen; we will reach out and want to hear from you to engage in a conversation.
When we started this work we took a long-term view. Our perspective was that a statewide candidacy would give us the broadest and fullest insight, but we also knew Texas was a big state so our work in the campaign would just be the beginning. With that campaign behind us, our goal is to have ongoing conversations with individuals and groups. Our hope is that these frank discussions will lead us to finding paths to competitive races at all levels by boosting areas of strength and identifying gaps in our political network. All aspects of a viable campaign from policy, to effective messaging, to candidate preparedness, to constituent education, to traditional campaign strategy will be discussed. To be effective, we believe every candidate and organization will inform winning campaigns going forward. The time is now, and we look forward to continuing the conversation.
