Rick Noriega's Campaign For Senate
You may recall that Texas has in-state tuition for DREAM ACT students thanks to Texas State Legislator Rick Noriega.
His opponent is John Cornyn who voted against the DREAM ACT in October 2007. The group Democracy for America is gathering signatures to in support of Noriega's campaign nationally.
Democracy for America (DFA) is one of the largest grassroots, membership organizations in the country. DFA is a political action committee dedicated to supporting fiscally responsible, socially progressive candidates at all levels of government -- from school board to the presidency.
The national organization took note in September when Rick became the first candidate to ever win an endorsement of Democracy for Texas, the DFA state level group.
Now, Democracy for America has promised to officially back Rick if we can collect 5,000 signatures on a petition hosted on DFA's website. Click below to help us reach that goal!
This endorsement will send a huge message to people all across America about how Texans are ready for a new U.S. Senator. Winning this endorsement will have a strong impact on many other national organizations taking notice of what we've begun here in Texas.

More voters, elected officials, and organizations have been pledging to vote for Rick every day.
Let's add Democracy for America to the growing list.
