TYLER, Texas (KLTV) – The morning was filled with rallies, music, and learning more about each of these running Democratic candidates. Dr Nancy Nichols, a member of the state’s Democratic Executive Committee for Senate District 1 and event organizer, said she was inspired by a similar event in another county.

“It’s important that everyone understands that every vote counts. It is important for us as voters to know who we are voting for. To go out and meet with the candidates and tell them what we want them to know about Smith County, on east Texas, ”Nichols said.

Candidates started in Smith County and moved through Van Zandt, Henderson and Anderson counties throughout the day. Lee Merritt is a civil rights attorney representing the Attorney General of Texas. Of Texas’ 50 GAs, he said the majority were Democrats, but more recently Republicans have held the post.

“We fell in the early 1990s, and we saw that gap shrink from 25% to just under 4% in the last election. I think we will close that gap. In order to do that, we will need to participate in what are known as low propensity or unlikely voters, ”Merritt said. “We’re going to have to get voters of color to vote and that’s part of why I’m running. I have a high profile practice that is a known commodity all over Texas, and I hope to inspire voters who have already abstained. “

Those who came out got to know a bit more about each candidate’s background and their plans. Cody Grace, a local man running for Texas House District 6, said he believes it is important to meet the other candidates and hear what voters want.

“Smith County needs representation, and I don’t think we have that right now. We see a lot of people without insurance. We see a lot of economic issues here, see a lot of things that are not being dealt with at the state level, and I am showing up to represent those things, ”Grace said.

Some Democratic gubernatorial candidates met with voters, but likely Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke was not in attendance. A recent Quinnipiac University poll shows Governor Greg Abbott leading O’Rourke, from 52 to 37 percent.

Early voting for the primary elections begins on February 14 and ends on February 26. Election day is March 1.

ZANU PF will take disciplinary action against members who committed acts of indiscipline in the provincial elections last week and overturn victories achieved through deception and irregularities.

National Political Commissioner Cde Mike Bimha said the Politburo would meet this week to deliberate on the results and suspected incidents of violence in some areas.

Cde Bimha said the preliminary results were subject to verification by the Politburo and after all cases of suspected misconduct were questioned.

“We would like these cases to be fully investigated. When we have candidates who have allegedly been involved in cases of violence, these candidates will be disqualified and, moreover, subject to the disciplinary procedure of the party,” he said. declared Cde Bimha.

He warned those who triumphed to stop celebrating until the results are approved by the Politburo.

“Regarding these preliminary results, it is not yet time for those who triumphed to celebrate. The celebrations will be justified after the Politburo deliberations,” Cde Bimha said.

He said there were aggrieved candidates who complained about the conduct of elections in some provinces.

“The results are also preliminary in the sense that every time you go through an election, some will feel aggrieved by the conduct of the election.

“For those who might think that they have been treated unfairly and have complaints, we do not throw out those complaints. We would obviously want these complaints to be examined, investigated, so that decisions are made on the basis of objectivity. “, did he declare.

Cde Bimha said his office was also awaiting reports from the teams overseeing the elections in the various provinces.

Newly elected Mashonaland West Provincial Youth President Cde Tapiwa Masenda thanked President Mnangagwa, who is the party’s first secretary, for demonstrating a high level of democracy in the recent internal elections.
