You watch the news and read the papers online. You see that we have serious problems and feel that you can’t do anything about it because of the stranglehold Republicans have over political offices in Texas. A letter to Weber, Cruz or Cornyn is pretty much a waste of a postage stamp.
I suggest a better investment – Beto O’Rourke.
Your U.S. Sentaor from Texas, Rafael Edward Cruz (he goes by Ted), has drawn an excellent and serious opponent this year, the sitting congressman from Texas’ 16th Congressional District, Robert Francis O’Rourke (he goes by Beto). The 16th District includes El Paso and my old home away from home, Fort Bliss.
I have made a monthly pledge to his campaign through November. When I wake up in the middle of the night in a major fret over the state of the world, I remember that I am helping this man make more ads like this one. I go back to sleep and dream about a Texas that gives me a voice in Congress.
