Indivisible Houston Board Member Benjamin Hernandez challenged Ted Cruz to support background checks and other measures during a break in dinner at Uptown Sushi on Westheimer.
Indivisible Houston Benjamin Hernandez fronts Ted Cruz
“He needs to be held accountable,” said Hernandez. “For him to attend the NRA Convention today after the murder of 19 kids and two teachers in Uvalde three days ago, and the murder of ten people just for being Black ten days ago in Buffalo, and to keep blocking gun reform measures, is embarrassing and tragic. It has long been time for basic, common-sense gun reform measures in this country. This can’t keep happening. Shame on Ted Cruz.”
Today’s rally for gun reform greatly outnumbered attendance at the convention. Several politicians and musicians backed out of the convention. Following the massacre in Uvalde, Polling shows a significant jump in support for further gun regulations.
Election 2022 is starting to heat up. And Democrats seem to be awakening as activists like Benjamin Hernandez help put select Republican politicians who are a clear and present danger on the defensive.
The tops of the Texas ticket are themselves engaging well. Recently the candidate for Texas governor Beto O’Rourke challenged Governor Greg Abbott at his lying and bloviating press conference. And tonight, Lieutenant Governor candidate Mike Collier appeared on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, where he laid out the bad deeds of Abbott and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick’s failure to Texans.
