Battleground Texas had a fantastic first day of ‘fighting’ yesterday! News reports and media appearances heralded the arrival of the Battleground Texas executive team in Austin, Texas to launch the project. From morning News shows to late night talk shows, Battleground Texas was the ‘talk of the town’ across the state and the nation, invoking immediate blustering and challenges from Texas Republican Party members, including the Governor. A line in the sand has truly been drawn, and Battleground Texas is asking citizens of the state to step across it and help with the fight for the Democratic Party side.
