Fight for Texas Tour Began Saturday as Gutierrez Journeys Across Texas Throughout January

For Immediate Release: January 9, 2024

TEXAS — U.S. Senate candidate and Uvalde State Senator Roland Gutierrez launched his month-long, more than 4,500 mile Fight for Texas Tour on Saturday in Travis County speaking with Democratic clubs, then down to Nueces County to meet with veterans, Democratic activists, elected officials, and serve as the keynote speaker for the Democratic banquet. 

Gutierrez’s Statewide Fight for Texas tour will hit all corners of the state as the Uvalde State Senator continues making the case to voters as to why he is the best candidate to challenge Ted Cruz. 

Join Gutierrez in a 25 day, more than 4,500 mile drive across Texas that will take him to over a dozen cities and towns. Gutierrez will spotlight how Ted Cruz embodies the neglect that has broken our systems in Texas, how Cruz has failed Texans on gun violence and immigration, and lay out Roland’s vision to solve the issues that affect everyday Texans.

The tour continues this week in Eagle Pass on Wednesday, January 10 and the Dallas area January 11th through 13th, then Houston on January 14th, before a stop in San Antonio on January 15.
