The Democratic group aiming to transform Texas into a swing state will hold its first Washington, D.C. fundraiser early next month, according to an invitation obtained by POLITICO.
Battleground Texas, the organization launched by former Obama campaign officials with the goal of helping Democrats compete in the nation’s largest GOP stronghold, is inviting supporters to a reception at The Hamilton on July 11.
Battleground Texas executive director Jenn Brown and senior adviser Jeremy Bird, the Obama campaign’s former national field director, are scheduled to appear at the event.
The invitation asks for donations starting at $50 per person and going up to $1,000 apiece for event chairs. One person involved in planning the event said it hoped to encourage participation from younger Democrats, including many involved in President Barack Obama’s campaigns.
In an email, Bird called the July fundraiser “a great opportunity for folks in Washington to show Texans that they have their backs.”
“Grassroots activists in Texas are thrilled that after years of funding national efforts – and making calls or knocking doors to support electoral fights in other places – they are now on the receiving end and will have the chance to make a difference in their own state,” he said.
