In an open letter released today, the organizers of a statewide grassroots network have written to U.S. Senate candidates David Dewhurst and Ted Cruz to follow up on their earlier offer to host a series of debates to be held across the State of Texas.
The Grassroots Texans Network is offering the candidates assistance in identifying local hosts, securing venues, negotiating dates and times and actively promoting the events to the public. The group has begun the process of reaching out to local grassroots organizations across Texas in order to identify potential venues and dates for the debates.
The group proposes to host the five events in various locations around the state, in order to maximize the opportunities for Texas voters to evaluate the candidates. Organizers are in the process of contacting local organizations in Texas’ major metro areas.
