Likely Democratic voters in Texas’ 32nd district need to read and see on the go:
Julie Johnson gets things done. She is the most effective and experienced Democrat running to serve in Congressional District 32. Johnson shares the progressive values of this district. As the only elected official running for this office, Julie Johnson is the only candidate for CD32 with a record of beating MAGA Republicans on Election Day. She authored and co-authored more than 400 bills, and 108 of those bills became law under a Republican-controlled state legislature. We can trust her to get to work on Day 1 and get things done on behalf of Texans.
Julie Johnson is the choice to restore abortion rights in this race and that’s why Planned Parenthood Action Fund has endorsed Julie Johnson as the Democrat that District 32 voters need in Washington.. As Vice Chair of the Women’s Health Caucus in the Texas State House, Johnson opposed Greg Abbott and the Republicans’ extreme bills outlawing abortion, including putting a bounty on anyone helping women get an abortion, and authored a bill to protect pharmacists from being prosecuted for providing reproductive care medication. In Congress, Johnson will fight to restore a woman’s right to safe and legal abortion. Julie Johnson is battle-tested on the issue of abortion and enjoys a 100% voting record with Planned Parenthood.
Julie Johnson has been leading the fight for gun control in Texas for years, earning an F rating every year from the NRA since she was elected. Johnson voted against the NRA 20 times and fought to strengthen gun laws by authoring bills that would have prohibited the sale of semi-automatic weapons to anyone under 21 and banned domestic violence offenders and those who are a danger to themselves or others from owning guns. Julie Johnson has been recommended by Moms Demand Action in every election and stood shoulder-to-shoulder with families affected and survivors of gun violence across Texas. She will back common-sense gun safety in Washington.
Julie Johnson is backed by Texas doctors, Texas hospitals, and more medical professionals than anyone else running in this race. Johnson is the only candidate with a record on healthcare reform. She has passed powerful healthcare access and patient safety bills with bipartisan support in the Texas House. Julie Johnson is the only legislator in Texas to get a bipartisan majority to sign on to Medicaid expansion. As an attorney, Johnson stood up to big business on behalf of patients, students, and victims for decades. Julie Johnson delivered healthcare and patient safety bills in the legislature and will deliver progress in Washington for District 32. That’s why doctors, hospitals, OBGYNs, radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, audiologists, and anesthesiologists have all endorsed Julie Johnson for Congress.
This fight is personal for Julie Johnson. As an elected, gay, Texas Democrat, Johnson is MAGA Republicans’ worst nightmare. With unprecedented attacks on the LGBTQ community across the country, Julie Johnson has been on the frontlines in Texas as an out, married, gay woman. Johnson stood up to Abbott killing 141 of 144 anti-gay bills and would be the first openly gay member of Congress from Texas or the South if elected. Johnson helped found the LGBTQ Caucus for the Texas legislature. She will get to work on Day 1 at coalition-building to pass a National Equality Act to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Julie Johnson is battle-tested and enjoys more support from local, state, and national leaders than any candidate in the race for CD32. Due to her strong record of delivering to local communities, you don’t have to guess where Julie Johnson stands on the issues that matter most to Texas Democrats. Johnson is endorsed by more local, state, and national leaders or organizations than all of her opponents combined. Some of these 81 endorsements include Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Texas AFT, the Human Rights Campaign, the Texas Medical Association, EMILY’s List, Dallas Firefighters, and Beto O’Rourke.
Julie Johnson is committed to American values defining the future of our global financial system. Blockchain technology and its applications are ushering in the next generation of the internet, allowing Americans to own their data, create wealth, and be stakeholders in the digital spaces of the future. Americans can benefit from crypto innovation. We must establish clear rules of the road for the crypto industry to build technology that benefits everyday Americans, while protecting consumers and ensuring equitable outcomes for all.
If Congress does not act, more and more Americans will be exposed to the risks of offshore and unregulated entities like FTX. Instead, the United States must lead the development of crypto and blockchain technology in the 21st century, rather than countries like Russia and China.
Julie Johnson will work to make sure the United States has regulatory frameworks in place that allow our values to define the future of the global financial system, while protecting consumers and ensuring no American is left behind.
