Support Erin Zwiener, who’s running for a state representative seat in House District 45 in Texas. The Democratic primary election takes place on March 6, 2018.
Zwiener might have the best campaign slogan of any Texas state-level candidate: “Let’s put the ALL back in Y’ALL!” She’s a fifth-generation Texan, a children’s book author, and a three-time Jeopardy! champion.
She favors expanding Medicaid in her state, as well as fully funding its public school system. She supports LGBTQ rights, immigrants, and taking sexual assault and domestic violence as seriously as other crimes. She would encourage investment in renewable energy sources, promote conservation, legalize and regulate marijuana, and fight gerrymandering and vote-suppressing tactics.
