Texas House Democratic Campaign Committee Chair Celia Israel issued the following statement:
“Every Texan has the right to a life of dignity and respect, free from discrimination and harassment. Texas Democrats are proud our candidates represent all Texans, no matter who they love, the color of their skin, where they come from, disability status, or how they identify. We will flip the Texas House in 2020.”
Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“Hate and discrimination have no place in our state or country. Every week, we hear another racist remark from Republicans. Having racist incumbents like Rick Miller is why the Texas Republican Party needs a video to fake diversity in their party and why Republicans will continue to lose elections in our increasingly diverse state. Whether it is Donald Trump, Greg Abbott, Dan Patrick, or now, Rick Miller, it is a sad reminder that our neighbors are still persecuted and attacked by those elected to represent them.
“Our candidates are fighting for a fair shot for all, and that is why we are going to flip Texas House District 26 in 2020 and earn the trust of Texans to lead the Texas House.”
