Groups seek to unite common-sense voters in Texas before critical 2020 elections.
Twelve political organizations representing thousands of active voters in Texas today delivered a letter to Governor Greg Abbott requesting that he call a special legislative session to unite Texas voters. The groups advocate passage of The Lone Star Agenda, a package of initiatives to reform state programs and protect unique Texas values.
The letter states “In the face of increasing division, conservative leaders across Texas have developed The Lone Star Agenda to reform important programs, protect what is unique about Texas values, and unite a coalition of common sense voters we will need in 2020 to ensure that Texas remains on a path towards greater constitutional governance and prosperity.“
The letter was signed by Concerned Women for America/Texas, Convention of States, Direct Action Texas, Empower Texans, Grassroots America, Gun Owners of America/Texas, Texans for Vaccine Choice, Texas Eagle Forum, Texas Ethics & Religious Liberty Committee / Southern Baptists of Texas Convention, Texas Home School Coalition, Texas Right to Life, and True Texas Project.
The groups are among a total of 285 Texas organizations, SREC members, and other leaders who have registered their support for the Lone Star Agenda. A full list of supporters and more information about the agenda are available at https://www.lonestaragenda.org/. Supporters believe a special session is needed to unite voters in the state and energize a larger turnout for the 2020 national and statewide elections.
The letter further stated, “We believe, under your leadership, advancing The Lone Star Agenda will unite and inspire everyday Texans heading into a critical election season to stand and fight for Texas.”
