TexBlog PAC endorses Joe Moody

Meet the TexBlog PAC's fourth endorsed candidate:

Joseph Moody is the right candidate at the right time in the right district. Joe was born in raised in El Paso and in 2006 ran his father, William "Bill" Moody's, campaign for Texas Supreme Court. Joe received his Doctorate of Jurisprudence from Texas Tech University and is a founding member of the Migrant Workers Project.

When volunteers were needed, Joe answered the call to help the Red Cross with victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita when they were evacuated to Lubbock.

Most recently, Joe has worked as a prosecutor in the El Paso District Attorney's office. He serves the public in the courtroom, giving a voice to victims by enforcing the laws of Texas.

Joe is a man of character and will be a fine legislator for the entire state of Texas, not just House District 78.

While Joe is the right person for the job, the district is prime for a Democratic victory. In 2006, Democrats across the board won majorities in nearly every race. In fact his father, Bill Moody, won 68.2% of the vote in El Paso. In the same year, Joe's opponent only got 41% of the vote in his loss against Sen. Eliot Shapleigh.

Presidential years are even better for Democrats in El Paso. John Kerry carried El Paso with 56% of the vote and down ballot Democrats like Joe Sullivan, David Van Os, and J.R. Molina all received nearly 60% of the vote.

TexBlog PAC is proud to endorse Joe Moody. Now we are asking you to join us in supporting Joe and the rest of our TexBlog PAC candidates today!

I did an interview with Moody in June during the state Democratic convention - the MP3 file is here. If you'd like to help Joe Moody and his campaign, you can donate to him here via ActBlue. We've got two more candidates to go, for a total of six. Look for those endorsements soon.
