MJ Hegar is running in Texas against Senator John Cornyn. This one is an uphill battle, but if you like supporting underdogs who could knock off a really Big Dog, you might want to shoot some texts into Texas for Hegar. Hegar has inherited much of the technical know-how that drove Beto O’Rourke’s 2018 Senate campaign. As one of our texters reports, she “has the best run texting program I’ve come across.”
