Sick of the Texas Taliban imposing Sharia law and their asshole minions like Erick Erickson?

BattleGround Texas is planning to turn Texas blue as soon as possible by registering voters, particularly Latino and African American voters.

AG Greg Abbott Fears Battleground Texas More Than North Korea

Kim Jung-un may have nuclear missiles pointed towards Central Texas, but Attorney General Greg Abbott is more concerned about the grassroots organizers pointing Democrats towards the voting booth.

At a Republican Club meeting in Waco, Abbott stoked the flames of partisan rancor by railing against the United Nations and emphasizing the threat that Battleground Texas poses to Republican dominance in Texas.

From the Waco Tribune:

Abbott also weighed in on Battleground Texas, a group formed by veterans of Obama's presidential campaigns hoping to make Democrats more competitive in Texas, where the party hasn't won a statewide election in nearly two decades.
"One thing that requires ongoing vigilance is the reality that the state of Texas is coming under a new 
assault, an assault far more dangerous than what the leader of North Korea threatened when he said he was going to add Austin, Texas, as one of the recipients of his nuclear weapons," Abbott said. "The threat that we're getting is the threat from the Obama administration and his political machine."

Battleground Texas realizes Republicans can't win a presidential election without Texas' 38 electoral votes, which makes the state "the last line of defense" in protecting the country's future, he said.

Abbott's the likely GOP nominee for Governor in 2014...

BattlegroundTexas:

Texas is at a crossroads.

The Lone Star State is changing – and with its size and diversity, our state should be a place where all elections – from local elections all the way up to the President of United States are hotly contested.

To do that, we need Texans in every corner of the state – from Amarillo to Brownsville and El Paso to Beaumont – to stand up and say that they’re tired of not being heard, tired of not being represented in Austin and in Washington, DC, and tired of the same Republican playbook which is failing our communities and ignoring the needs of countless Texans.

Change will take time – but together we can make Texas a part of the national discussion.

Grassroots voices are changing this country on a scale that was unheard of just a few years ago.

Over the next several years, Battleground Texas will focus on expanding the electorate by registering more voters – and, as importantly, mobilizing those Texans who are already registered but who have not been engaged in the democratic process. And we’ll use the data-driven, people-focused approach that has helped win grassroots campaigns around the country.

From top to bottom of the ballot – we can change the face of Texas politics together.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
