Battleground Texas Turns to Houston Again

So, Jeremy Bird is headed back to Houston.  Attention Harris County Republicans - Battleground Texas is holding another meeting in our city.  To be held in another union headquarters, naturally, a request to RSVP is included in the announcement via email, as "the last time we were in Houston, it was standing - room only". 

Battleground Texas Senior Adviser, Jeremy Bird, is coming to Houston and he wants to meet you. Mark your calendars for May 30, 2013 from 4-6pm at the Communications Workers of America, Local 6222 Hall. 
Houston and it’s surrounding counties are critical to the effort of turning Texas into a battleground state. To date, we have helped over 1,200 volunteers become deputized to register voters in their community -- and we're just getting started.
At this grassroots meeting we will officially kickoff our voter registration drive, lay out the plan for the next few months and get imporant feedback from you.The last time we were in Houston, it was standing-room only – so RSVP today. See you there,
Jenn BrownExecutive Director, Battleground Texas

You remember Jeremy Bird, right? He's described as "National Field Director for the 2012 re-election campaign of President Barack Obama", by the Huffington Post,  he now has his sights set on turning Texas blue.

In a previous blog post, I wrote about the efforts of Texas County Democratic Campaign Committee in relationship to the turning Texas blue momentum. The group is now moving right along, or wants us to think they are. On Facebook they continue to raise money.

From Facebook:

254 counties. Contribute a dime (or even a penny!) per county every month, and help us recruit and support Democrats for county offices across the Great State of Texas. Step up today with a recurring contribution of $2.54 or $25.40 and tell our local Democrats you've got their back!
You may remember that Team Obama was able to turn small money contributions into quite a game changer in the world of campaign money.  They caused a stir with the number of online small donations, for example, and the system which allowed those donations to be free of some traditional reporting requirements. 

Battleground Texas organizers admit that Houston and the surrounding area is crucial to turning Texas blue. Keep informed, Harris County Republicans.  Knowledge is power.
