Almost 200 Democratic party chairs from counties across Texas made their way to San Antonio over the weekend for training to "turn Texas blue," as the party continues its marketing push to get to voters it feels it can persuade.
State Democratic Executive Committee member Susan Bankston said county chairs learned more about online outreach through social media. She said the party can be more efficient by focusing on the voters that are fed up.
Texas has voted Republican in the last nine general elections, and hasn’t elected a Democrat to a statewide office since the 1990s. Between the Tea-Partiers and Governor Rick Perry, Democrats are feeling the squeeze.
