Austin, TX — Texas Democrats have almost doubled 2014 primary turnout, breaking 1 million voters. This is the first time Texas Democrats have reached a million voters in 16 years and only the third time in the past 24 years.
Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“It’s clear Texas Democrats are fired up, exceeding expectations, and charging forward to November. We’re grateful to so many enthusiastic voters who showed up in full force as well as our terrific candidates who stepped up to serve.
“After tonight, win or lose, we will need your support in the upcoming months. If everyone that showed up to vote during the primary brings one or two friends in November, we can win this. Adelante.”
