David's speaking right now at the Texas Dem Convention!
Jim Mattox introduced David, making the comparisons to Harry Truman.
He's raising the roof. Simply on fire. And so is the crowd. (Tomtech from Daily Kos is taking some pictures I'll post later on.)
Some of the best excerpts:
"I got a message for the robber barons: You better spend your millions to try to deeat me now, because when I am sworn in as your Attorney General, I'm coming after you."
"The Republican thugs who have taken over Washington left their junior partners in charge in Austin, and we're taking it ALL back."
"Ralph Yarborough said, 'Put the jam on the lower shelf so the little guy can reach it.' Well, the jam is so high up now that the little guy can't even SEE it. We've got to get it within reach."
There's no question in my mind now that David is the titular leader of not only Texas progressives but all Democrats in The Lone Star. He's long been the leader of the progressive movement, but his influence has spread up-ballot as well as down. Candidates everywhere are asking for his help and support and the power of his grassroots organization.
The power of this movement that he's leading is going to take back Texas for ALL OF US (well, not the corporations, but they've owned it for too long anyway).
David will be conducting his next marathon speaking event, a Filibuster for Freedom, on Juneteenth (Sunday 6/18 and Monday 6/19) in Galveston. From there he'll launch a Southeast Texas Courthouse Tour, swinging through Liberty and Kountze and Beaumont and Newton and Lufkin and Conroe and many others. I'll be posting details on both of these events shortly.
