Major congratulations are in order this morning for the newly-minted Democratic nominee for Illinois Attorney, along with his entire campaign team. Kwame Raoul won last night’s hard-fought, wide-open primary to become his party’s nominee for Attorney General, defeating a former Governor and six other challengers. 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!
A big congratulations to two CTC clients, both of whom have reasons to cheer after last night’s historic primary election in Texas.
As Democrats across Texas shattered primary turnout records and look towards an historically competitive election in November, Convergence client Laura Moser will advance to a May 22 runoff in the competitive Democratic primary election for Texas’ Seventh Congressional District. 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. While it’s currently in Republican hands, this seat will be one of the most critical state legislative races in Texas in November. We’re excited at the opportunity to win that seat for the Democrats, and congratulate Beverly and her whole team on a great campaign.
Convergence Targeted Communications has continued our hot streak of award-winning Democratic mayoral mail with our recent Reed Award for Best Mail Piece for a Democratic Mayoral Campaign. This marks the third year in a row Convergence has won awards for the Best Mail Piece in a Mayoral Campaign.
We were thrilled to help Gavin Buckley defeat the incumbent Mayor of Annapolis, MD. Voters affirmed his vision for the city and the positive approach he took with his campaign. This mailer, with its positive and uplifting theme, featured artwork created by the Convergence team. Gavin’s campaign received tons of buzz for this piece and ultimately defeated the Republican incumbent mayor in a landslide.
