Democrats Political Rally!

Highland Lakes Democratic Women and the Llano, Burnet and Blanco County Democrats presented an Old-Fashioned Political Rally to present Texas Democratic Party Candidates. The roster was full and the candidate's presentations were energizing and...well, RALLYING. 

Our dedication to turning Texas Back To Blue is becoming a reality. More people are realizing that every vote in every election counts and all politics is local. We must become the experts in how we want our communities, counties, states and nation to represent our wishes, now and for the future.

  • Jeffrey Payne and Tom Wakely, for Governor
  • Mike Collier and Michael Cooper, for lieutenant Governor
  • Kim Olson, for Commissioner of Agriculture
