RootsAction: Connect. Act. Grow.
In 2018, in Texas's 10th Congressional District (suburban Houston), Republican Michael McCaul was just barely re-elected with 51.1% of the vote. The man who took 46.8% was progressive Democrat Mike Siegel, who's running a stronger campaign in 2020. Replacing McCaul with Siegel would be a big improvement for the whole country, and the whole country should support Siegel's campaign. Siegel is a respected civil rights lawyer and former public school teacher.

One of the wealthiest members of Congress, McCaul has worked to deprive Americans of health coverage during a pandemic. After downplaying Covid-19, he scapegoated the World Health Organization and China. On the House floor during debate on a Covid relief bill in late April, he ignored recommendations of the House physician to wear a mask. He's typical of the reason the U.S. government is near the bottom of the world's governments in handling the virus. It's time for a change.

Siegel, unlike McCaul, supports Medicare For All, a Green New Deal, making college part of public education, a long list of worker protections including an end to "right to work" laws, major steps to end homelessness, and significant reforms and demilitarization of police.

On foreign policy, Mike Siegel has this to say:

“Let's rebuild the State Department and our diplomatic corps. Let's revamp our foreign aid spending to encourage the development of civil society and local economies. And instead of over-spending on war industries, let's invest in the domestic safety net and the conditions for peace around the world.”
