It’s election day for the primary run-off in Texas. Polls are open until 7pm. Find out where to vote here: https://www.texasdemocrats.org/my-texas-votes-2/

Abbott could issue a stay at home order and save lives. He is choosing not to. https://www.texastribune.org/2020/07/14/texas-hospitals-coronavirus/

Texas needs this kind of leadership in the White House. And with our 38 electoral college votes, Texas can make it possible.

Beto O'Rourke on Texas: 'This virus is out of control with no leadership from our governor'  @Beto O'Rourke  @MSNBC https://www.msnbc.com/andrea-mitchell-reports/watch/beto-o-rourke-on-texas-this-virus-is-out-of-cont...

@Senator Ted Cruz, my dad just tested positive again for COVID after his wife, my stepmom, died last Friday from it. As you know, the virus is surging in Texas. It would help all of us if we all wear a mask in public. Will you please wear a mask out of courtesy to others?

Captured today at 10:45am — @TedCruz on a commercial flight, refusing to wear a mask.

Sandra Bland should be alive today. Thinking about her family, especially her mother, on the 5th anniversary of her death in police custody after she was stopped, arrested and jailed for being black in Waller county. There has been no justice for Sandra, 5 years and counting.

6 minutes 20 seconds Is all it took for the shooter at my high school to fire over 100 rounds from his AR-15 to shoot 34 people. In that same amount of time even the most trained person would have only been able to fire 18 rounds with a musket. Modern day musket my ass

I’m thinking about everyone in the Rio Grande Valley tonight. Please be safe, stay home if you can, wear a mask and keep 6+ft if you have to leave the house. Gov. Abbott: you need to issue stay at home orders. This is only going to get worse until you do.

Sen. Cornyn: ‘We still don’t know’ if kids can get COVID https://bit.ly/2CrWrPS

If we want schools to open safely for the long haul, if we want some semblance of normalcy, & if we want a sustainable economy, then we have to buckle down--now. We need a stay home order.The longer we wait, the longer it’ll take to bring down the curve & the more people will die

Roger Stone lied under oath to the  @House Intelligence Committee committee. He was covering up for the Trump campaign’s coordination w/ Wikileaks & Russian interference in the 2016 election. Trump’s abuse of power not only undermines the rule of law, it encourages future attacks on our democracy.

Trying to understand how we can re-open schools? This thread is worth the read. Central to answering the question is making sure that the already underpaid teachers, custodians, librarians & support staff are at the table along w public health experts & parents!

Trump’s favorite Congressman Dan Crenshaw accuses Sen. Tammy Duckworth — who lost her legs & nearly her life in military service to this country — of supporting “the destruction of America.” We can beat him in November & send someone to Congress we can be proud of. Donate below:

Texans are dying because Abbott listens to pollsters instead of doctors. If he’d done the right thing from the start, we’d probably be re-opening by now. But he didn’t, and so instead we’re seeing record cases, deaths and hospitalizations throughout Texas. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/opinion/editorials/article/Editorial-Gov-Abbott-didn-t-listen-to-15...

We send our love to you and Julián, to your father and to your family.

My stepmom, Alice Guzman, passed away today from COVID-19. She and my dad were for married for 31 years. Alice (pictured with my daughter) was a warm, loving person and we’ll miss her incredibly.

My heart goes out to the families who’ve lost loved ones to this terrible illness.

They’re out of space in the Corpus Christi morgue. Out of nurses in the RGV. Cases, hospitalizations & deaths are out of control in El Paso, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, Houston. But we’re not out of options to turn this around: Issue stay at home order & allow vote by mail.

🔥TEXAS sets new COVID records

105 deaths, 3rd straight daily record
Record 15.56% 7-day positivity rate (cc: @VP)
9,689 confirmed COVID patients in hospitals (+89)

+ near record 9,782 new cases

TX is better than the  #DeathPenalty. We failed to prove that today. Tonight I’ll pray for the victims of violent crime, the victims of the death penalty, and the families that are left behind. Our work to abolish the death penalty continues.  #txlege  #BillyWardlow  #CJReform

Yes  @Ady Barkan !! Beautifully said. We inherited the struggle from those who fought before us and must “solemnly, joyfully” pass it on to the generations that follow after doing all that we can in this moment that we have together. You are an inspiring, powerful example of that!

.@JoeBiden is everything Trump is not. He has turned loss into purpose: the purpose of public service.

Although he & I have different perspectives on the world, winning this election is essential.

Then we can continue our struggles for justice with a compassionate president.

I’m excited that you’re running! If we all get behind you, you’ll be part of a new Democratic majority in the Texas state house next year. Given the challenges we face, your victory cannot come soon enough. Here’s how to help Natali: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/natali

I am tremendously excited to have @BetoORourke support of my campaign. In 2018 he showed Texans that meaningful, positive change is possible, and set the stage for candidates like myself to run and win in 2020. I am very grateful for his endorsement. Now let's #flipthetxhouse!

People in Texas have been camped out since 11pm last night to try to get a #COVID test at one of the free community sites in Houston. I’ll have more on the testing situation in the Lone Star state coming up on @MSNBC.

59 years ago today I was released from Parchman Farm Penitentiary after being arrested in Jackson, MS for using a so-called "white" restroom during the Freedom Rides of 1961.

Abbott opens Texas too soon, issues mask order too late, denies local leaders authority to contain the virus — causing uncontrolled covid spread, many hospitalized & soon dead because of his negligence — and then blames local officials? Pathetic. Resign.
