Harris County Democrats Celebrate Local Wins, Strong Turnout
‘Dark Money Did Not Prevail’, Says HCDP Chair
HOUSTON – Harris County Democrats are celebrating local wins today following a contentious midterm election against GOP candidates funded by unprecedented amounts of dark money.
“Dark money did not prevail in this election, the people did, and that is definitely something to celebrate,” said Odus Evbagharu, Harris County Democratic Party Chair.
“Going up against an estimated $20 million is truly unprecedented. We have never seen this level of GOP spending in Harris County elections.
“When they elected all three of our Democratic candidates to Commissioners Court, voters made clear that they want representatives in office who stand with democracy, representatives who won’t rubber stamp for the good ole boys or allow shady developers to build communities they know will flood.
“With a Democratic majority on the Harris County Commissioners Court that means we can get to work for the people of Harris County without Republican obstructionists that seek to slow down progress and play political games.
“This is a great day in Harris County: Freedom won, transparency won and democracy won.
“Now, we move forward. We continue our work to elect Democrats; we continue to work to elect more leaders who put the people first.
“When Democrats win, the people win.”
