“We are grateful for the overwhelming support we have received since launching this campaign last summer. It’s a clear signal that our message resonates with the community,” said Johnson. “We set out to run a campaign that prioritizes the needs and concerns of the people who live here, with a campaign powered by local staff and more than fifty volunteers from right here in North Texas. I will continue to work harder than anyone to reach the families and workers who need a fighter in Washington as we deploy these resources toward the March 5th primary.”
