Is it possible for Texas Independents to swing the Cruz v Beto race?
If you live in Central Texas, be sure to read the WATER WAR ALERT at the end of this message. Please come to these events on September 13th and 26th! More below.
You haven’t heard much from the League of Independent Voters (LIV) lately. Frankly, we’ve been retooling and waiting for opportunities we thought would not come until 2020.
Even we are surprised at how tight the race is between Sen. Ted Cruz and Congressman Beto O’Rourke.
Everybody’s talking about the obvious — independent voters will be the swing vote in tight races.
There’s also a heated race in Congressional District 21 (Lamar Smith’s vacated seat) between Joseph Kopser (D) and Chip Roy (R). CD-21 covers the area where the 142-mile San Antone Hose hooks into San Antonio Water System and most of the Hill Country. See the map?
What are we — non-partisan independent voters — to do?
Do the Texas Independent two-step!Step 1: Read LIV’s hot-off-the-press paper…How to Organize Texas Independents. Share it with your favorite candidate(s)Step 2: Volunteer to help LIV do candidate forums.
Oops! We almost forgot! LIV needs some capital (or is it Capitol?!) investment. Help us grow the independent movement.
We’ll send you one of these nifty bumper stickers or you can pick one up at upcoming forums. Watch for those details or call us to set one up in your area.
Lots more independent action is expected for 2020. Hold on to your hats and get involved in LIV now!
