Democrats to welcome state leaders
Aug. 24, 2013 at 3:24 a.m.
Victoria County Democrats are hosting an event Tuesday at Club Westerner with two special guests.
The Texas Democratic Party Executive Director Will Hailer and Battleground Texas Deputy Field Director Daniel Lucio will speak about the statewide effort to "turn Texas blue."
The event doubles as a chance to say farewell to outgoing County Chairwoman Kelli Gill and to welcome incoming County Chairwoman Jane Bernal.
The free event includes a meal and opportunities for Victoria County Democrats to hear what the two groups have to offer the community.
"This is a very exciting and rare opportunity for Victoria County. Battleground Texas has been focusing on the larger areas, and we are very fortunate to have been selected for a visit," Bernal said in a news release.
"We hope all Democrats take this opportunity to not only meet some of our state level leaders but to also find out how they can be effective at the grass-roots level."
