Save the date now for Saturday, January 23 — Lubbock County Democratic Party is offering a day filled with once-in-a-lifetime events!
The day kicks off with a region-wide meeting of college-age Democrats. At 11:00am at the Science Spectrum (use the South entrance off 74th St), the Coalition of West Texas Democrats hosts a meeting for college and university students from throughout the region. Johnnie Jones, president of the Coalition, will discuss grassroots campaigning and networking. At 12:00, gubernatorial candidate Bill White will join students for pizza, discussion, and informal Q&A.
At 1:30pm, in the same meeting room at the Science Spectrum, the Texas Observer party begins. The managing editor of the magazine and several reporters will be on hand to give their insights. This will be a fantastic event, and I will blog more about the details of it as the date approaches.
There will also be a press conference in the same meeting room at 3:00pm. Democratic candidates attending the banquet will be available to the press. All the statewide candidates will arrive at 3:00.
That same evening, the Lubbock Democratic Candidates Banquet is taking place:
