Two weeks from today, voters in Texas have a choice: Do they support marijuana prohibitionist Henry Cuellar who just last month voted to maintain national criminalization or legalization supporter Jessica Cisneros.
It’s not a hard choice but it will be a close race and every dollar counts, so we’re doubling our impact by asking you to split a contribution to support Jessica and our efforts to defeat prohibitionists around the country.
For more context, it’s a run-off race between the two of them where Prohibitionist Cuellar only received 1,000 more votes than reform champion Cisneros, with 2,324 people voting for a third candidate. In all, more than 50% of voters tried to fire Henry Cuellar, so we know that this is a key opportunity.
Some other areas in addition to marijuana reform where Cuellar is on the wrong side:
- He is an anti-choice Democrat who opposes women’s access to safe and legal abortion(1)
- The FBI recently raided his home and office and the investigation is ongoing(2)
- He has prioritized oil and gas companies’ profits over addressing climate change(3)
We could go on and on but to us, just the fact that Henry Cuellar supports the criminalization of marijuana is good enough of a reason for him to be defeated two weeks from today.
We’re running out of time and Jessica needs our support now more than ever. Double your impact in support of national legalization by contributing to help defeat Cuellar and elect reformers around the country.
Thanks for all you do,
