About Us

Who we are

Swing Left TX-24 is an offshoot of Swing Left TX-32, which was started by citizens who felt compelled to get more involved in politics after the 2016 election. We channelled grassroots energy and enthusiasm to unseat longtime Republican incumbent Pete Sessions and help Democrat Colin Allred win the TX-32 race in 2018. Now we’re setting our sights on TX-24.

Broad Vision

To keep control of the US House of Representatives in the hands of Democrats.

TX-24 Vision

To support a qualified Democratic candidate to win in the 2020 TX-24 Congressional election, and create a support base able to hold the seat in future elections.

Mission

Swing Left TX-24 is a grassroots organizing group focused specifically on electing a Democrat in the 2018 campaign for Congressional District TX-24.

We do not support any particular candidate over any other until a nominee has been chosen in the primary election. We support a mainstream progressive agenda, though we do not take positions on any specific issues.

Our Focus

The goal is to turn the 24 blue and keep it that way!

  1. Canvassing: Our canvassing efforts focus on engaging in conversations with voters about their beliefs and registering new voters.
  2. Candidate Awareness: Meet and Greet events will be organized with each candidate at various stages of the campaign season.
  3. Outreach and Coalitions: We coordinate with other progressive organizations in North Texas and look for ways to further our shared goals.
  4. Getting out the Vote: High voter turnout tends to be favorable for Democrats, so all of our efforts are working toward this objective.
