Faith Chatham endorses Rachel Barrios-Van Os for State Chair of the Texas Democratic Party
Faith Chatham endorses Rachel Barrios-Van Os for State Chair of the Texas Democratic Party.
I have worked with Rachel on several state wide campaigns. She is tireless, organized, and resourceful. Rachel is no novice to the electoral process. She has directed several state wide races and ran for local office in one of Texas's largest cities. During the 2006 election cycle, Rachel traveled to EVERY COUNTY in Texas and personally met with the county chairs and activists. She values EVERYONE and assists others.
Rachel is absolutely right about the deplorable plight of the leadership of this state. Democrats have not won a statewide race for decades. We cannot continue doing the same thing and expect a different outcome.
The goal of the State Democratic party once the voters have selected the party's nominees in the primary should be to do everything we possibly can to get our nominees elected. Numerous former statewide candidates have told me many times that they had more resistance from the state party than from Republicans! This must stop. Rachel will recruit, energize, train, and equip Democrats throughout the state to band together and effectively support the party's nominees. The goal is to win and Rachel knows how to do it and is relentless when she fights for the people of this state.
