Today was the first day for candidates to file for the Texas Republican Primary. Cahnman's Musings received invitations from multiple campaigns. We had to work.
After filing, Team Abbott held their first official block-walking. While Cahnman's Musings didn't attend, we did speak to several volunteers at RPT headquarters around 2:30 pm. According to multiple volunteers, Team Abbott knocked on 6000 doors today in Northeast Austin.
This is encouraging. Battleground Texas' strategy to win statewide requires them to run up the scoreboard in Travis County. An early investment in Travis County indicates that Team Abbott understands the territory.
Update: Thank Goodness for Twitter; Team Abbott confirms....
@SarahFloerke Multiple Volunteers told me @AbbottCampaign knocked on 6000 doors today in Travis County....correct?!?
