Democratic Candidates Are Set for November General Election

'We Have Our Slate; the Fight Starts Now,' Says HCDP Chair

Houston — Harris County Democrats on Tuesday finalized their picks for the November election with Beto O’Rourke topping the list as the party’s candidate for Texas Governor.

“Races at the county, state, and federal levels are set for the general election,” said Harris County Democratic Chair Odus Evbagharu. “We have our slate, and the fight starts now.

“In order to move Texas forward, the citizens of our state need leaders they can look to for meaningful policy change.

“We need brave leaders who will take much-needed steps to protect our children, expand Medicaid, restore women’s reproductive rights, and fix the grid.

“Republicans aren't protecting your rights, and they never will,” Evbagharu said.

“We’ve got a fantastic slate of candidates, and the Harris County Democratic Party is going to mobilize voters in every corner of the county to elect them.

“Harris County is ready. Progress starts here.”
