Defeating Republicans in Texas is hard and not for the faint-hearted. Every dollar invested and hour spent must be focused on finding and helping responsible Democrats defeat failed Republicans.
Beating Republicans is our bottom line. That’s why investment in the Lone Star Project is a commitment to doing the hard work to win tough elections.
The Lone Star Project applies years of broad-based political experience to give targeted candidates and allied organizations the essential political tools and services they can’t otherwise find or afford.
Our work doesn’t just strengthen individual campaigns, it enhances the efforts of others doing the hard work to elect Texas Democrats.
The Lone Star Project (LSP) works with targeted Democratic candidates, Labor, and other key progressive allies. Our assistance and services are provided in-kind at no cost to candidates and allies. During the 2018 election cycle, the Lone Star Project provided essential support that helped Democrats pick up twelve State House Seats, two State Senate Seats, crucial judicial benches and dozens of county-level seats in North Texas and the Houston area.
“I have worked with the Lone Star Project for years. Lone Star Project is invaluable in our efforts to expose and defeat destructive partisan policies and protect our voting rights”
–State Rep. Rafael Anchia, Chair of the Mexican American Legislative Caucus
LSP conducts in-depth opposition and other political research, including voting and legislative records, uncovered statements, videos, and archived materials on vulnerable Republican candidates and office holders. LSP research gives candidates and allied organizations the information needed to field polls, formulate earned media plans and conduct paid voter communication – including direct mail, television, social media, online advertising, and phone scripts.
Democratic candidates need good advice and guidance to run successful campaigns. LSP produces valuable training, debate & editorial board materials. LSP State Director, Lisa Turner, brings unmatched experience and expertise in working directly with candidates to prepare for debates, editorial boards and media appearances.
LSP is a credible critic of Texas Republicans, a trusted media source, and a resource for candidates and allies preparing for media appearances. Whether commenting on-the-record, providing background information or prepping candidates and surrogates, the Lone Star Project works to expose Republican failure and promote constructive Democratic alternatives.
“The Lone Star Project has been at the center of our decade-long Democratic efforts in Harris County, providing strategic support and guidance that led to across-the-board wins in 2018.”
–Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis
LSP takes an unbiased, non-ideological approach to identify the best opportunities for Texas Democrats. LSP works with Annie’s List, Labor, regional Democratic leaders and other key allies to identify opportunities and determine the best use of Democratic/progressive resources to capture GOP-held seats and protect vulnerable Democrats
LSP is the only partisan Texas-based organization that has been directly involved in redistricting and ballot access litigation. LSP Director, Matt Angle and LSP legal counsel are recognized among the most informed and credible Texas voices on redistricting and voting rights matters. LSP will maintain an ongoing redistricting/voting rights division (working appropriately with our 501(c)(3) affiliate, the Texas Justice and Education Fund) to help protect the rights of Texas voters to participate freely and fully in our elections.
“Please give what you can to keep Lone Star Project fighting and winning for us here in Texas.”
