There is cause to celebrate in our own backyard. We elected new women leaders right here in Texas, who we can count on to champion our values in these uncertain times. In this general election Annie’s List endorsed 27 pro-choice, progressive women up and down the ballot, across the state.
25 of these 27 women won their races outright – and Anne Sung won her runoff race by 27 votes!
Texans re-elected every Annie’s List incumbent who will continue to champion our values.
We all fought so hard that the 27th Annie’s List-endorsed candidate, Terry Meza for the Texas House, came within 64 votes shy of a victory with 49.9% of the vote.
With the election of Ann Harris Bennett, we now have a progressive woman safeguarding the largest voting population in the State.
In many ways, we planned for — and worked for — a future for our country that looks different than today.
We are still planning for the future.
We know some of you need some space to recover from results at the top of the ticket. We will continue to hold space for you.
Our ability to elect women who will hold the line here in Texas is a direct result of financial investments in our State from people like you. For those of you looking for an action you can take, please consider joining us in our efforts to change the face of power in Texas.
