Allison's 30th birthday, which she was fortunate enough to spend with the Texans R United Bedford Indivisible group. From her post that day:
"Today is my 30th birthday. President John F Kennedy was a sitting Congressman by the age of the 30, and Vice President Joe Biden was a United States Senator. President Bill Clinton was the Attorney General of Arkansas by 30. It looks like I may be a little behind the curve but no worries - I'm right on their coat tails! "

What a day! Team Campolo used their morning to block walk for Vanessa Adia for TX Congressional 12th district, we hosted our own meet n greet at Tio Carlos in Colleyville, and we supported Beth McLaughlin as she kicked off her campaign for HD97.

We headed down to Austin to help fight for universal healthcare for all. One of our main priorities is to either properly expand Medicaid in Texas or to adopt a single-payer healthcare system for all at the state level. It's time to take our state and our country back. The turnout for this march and day of activism was fantastic - we packed the sidewalks to make our message seen, and we wrote letters and postcards to our US Senators. And always remember: today we march, but tomorrow we vote! Our ONLY true power lies in the vote. Let's use it!

An incredibly inspirational day from top to bottom. It was a day of engaged citizens, of activated candidates, of making plans to take on the world, and most importantly hearing stories from people who are ready to see a change. The activity of the March for Truth, the volunteered time and effort for those who are working for my campaign, and the incredibly moving and heart wrenching stories from victims of gun violence at the Moms Demand Action - Wear Orange Event made today unforgettable. Thank you, Fort Worth.
