State Convention Events Selling Out Fast
The unprecedented burst of interest in this year's Presidential contest has not only increased Democratic registration and primary and caucus voter turnout across the country and Texas, but it has also sparked extremely heightened interest in this year's State Convention in Austin in June. The Texas Democratic Party says at this page: "The TDP is pleased to announce that we have secured an additional block of hotel rooms for this June's State Convention in Austin. Due to overwhelming demand from Texas Democrats, our original block of over 2,000 rooms sold out in less than 48 hours. We expect these additional rooms to sell out quickly as well, so book your room as quickly as possible." That page also gives links to other pages with more State Convention information, including a link to the pdf form to apply to be considered as a national delegate.
Traditionally, one of the ways we help pay for the State Convention is by selling tickets to the Blue Star Breakfast on Saturday morning (June 7th at 8:30 AM this time). We understand that this year it is already selling out, so you should pay on line now at this page. Finally, the Kickoff Reception at the Austin Hilton on Thursday, June 5 at 7 PM is also selling out this far in advance, so get your tickets to that now at this page.
