0 1102

(Austin, TX) – Today Texans for Senator John Cornyn (TFSJC) announced five exciting additions to the campaign field staff. And after completing a training program in Austin last week, which included a presentation on Hispanic voter outreach by the Republican Party of Texas, these new team members are prepared to lead the effort to identify and mobilize supporters of Senator Cornyn all across the state.

“Texans will see an aggressive grassroots campaign with a presence in all 254 counties and in every city across the state,” said TFSJC Campaign Manager Brendan Steinhauser. “And through our Keep It Red campaign, we’re identifying supporters across the state and equipping them with the tools to fight President Obama’s Battleground Texas and the effort to turn Texas blue.”
