In the Democratic Primary, voters in Arizona’s seventh congressional district came out in historic numbers to renominate Rep. Ruben Gallego for re-election. Congressman Gallego has always been a strong, progressive voice for his district in Washington, standing up against Trump while fighting for the rights of immigrants and working families in AZ-07. Convergence is proud to count him as our client and our friend. Congratulations, Congressman Gallego!

Last night, voters in Fairfax City, VA elected six members of their City Council, including So Lim, who becomes the first Asian American woman to serve on that body. Convergence was proud to work in partnership with the Lim campaign to produce four pieces of direct mail targeted at city voters, helping seal a narrow victory in a “pick-six” election with many candidates.
Previously, Convergence worked to elect Fairfax Mayor David Meyer, who was re-elected to a second term last night without opposition.
So was a tireless campaigner, who’s victory demonstrates the power of grassroots campaigning, especially in local elections. A big congratulations to So and her entire campaign team!
Major congratulations are in order this morning for the newly-minted Democratic nominee for Illinois Attorney, along with his entire campaign team.

Convergence helped the Raoul campaign communicate with primary voters in downstate Illinois as part of a successful effort to bolster his support across the entire state. We were proud to be a part of this winning team!

Laura is a Houston native, longtime activist, and first-time candidate. She fits her district and the energy of the 2018 cycle, and Convergence is proud to count her as a client.
In Tarrant County, Beverly Powell won her primary for Texas’ Tenth State Senate District — the district formerly held by Wendy Davis.
