Why Texas Democrats Had to Flee Texas to Do Their Jobs and Fight for Democracy, with Reps. Erin Zwiener and James Talarico

Run For Something

It's the biggest story in politics right now: In order to deny Texas Republicans the quorum needed to pass egregious voter suppression laws, Democrats in the Texas state house literally left the state, and can't come back for at least three weeks. First, we reconnect with early podcast guest TX Rep. Erin Zwiener to get into the details on how they came up with their secret plans to leave, the security concerns, and the sacrifices they made (including Erin needing to bring her three year old daughter with her). Then we talk with Rep. James Talarico, a former school teacher turned youngest-legislator-in-history who's been making waves for a turn on Fox News where he called out the bullshit. This episode is a little longer than usual but it's worth every second.   You can learn more about Erin at erinforyall.com, and follow James on Twitter at @JamesTalarico.   Produced by Dear Media.

Interviews with Wendy Davis, Gilberto Hinojosa and Erin Zwiener

Left in Texas

This is a very special edition of the Left in Texas Podcast from ground zero of eh hem...battleground Texas. It was a packed house in Kyle, Hays County, TX.  Seriously just a few cycles ago no one would have thought there were Democrats in these parts let alone that they would turn this rural turned suburban county blue, but alas here we are. Democratic Constables, County Commissioners, a Democratic State Representative and a top tier candidate for congress. We caught of with Senator Wendy Davis who is now a candidate for US House District 21, Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa and State Representative Erin Zwiener. They each gave their insight into their efforts to extend the Hays County effect to other parts of the state and their optimism for Democrats' chances in 2020.  Have a listen and please share!
