We are a group of Democratic organizers. Many have worked on previous national campaigns. All of us are concerned about how Central Texas is being represented in Washington. Lamar Smith has never been seriously challenged in 30 years in Congress. The time is now...
1. Electing a Congressman that stands for science and is concerned about the effects of climate change throughout Central Texas.
2. Supporting reasonable, electable progressive candidates throughout the primary and general elections.
3. Creating an expectation of reasonable positions from our elected representatives.
We are organizing a summer-long series of candidate forums throughout the district to introduce the many candidates running against Lamar Smith. We need your help to make these events possible! Please join us at our kick-off forum at Texas State on May 1st (7pm at Evans Auditorium), and engage with the candidates running to replace Congressman Lamar Smith in Austin, San Marcos, San Antonio, and the Texas Hill Country! We deserve a Congressman who represents Central Texas and Hill Country values - not an avowed climate change skeptic who believe that Texans are well advised to"Better to get your news directly from the President. In fact, it might be the only way to get the unvarnished truth."
Sign up to hear from us about specials, sales, and events.
Lamar Smith has spent much of the last few years trying to intimidate government scientists and environmental organizations that are simply trying to communicate their results.
Join us on-line or at an event, and stay in touch as we support the candidates between now and November of 2018 - the Race to Replace Lamar is on!
