Bloomberg, a Democratic presidential candidate, is also going door-to-door in Houston Sunday.
Bloomberg had lunch with local elected officials and community leaders. Then, he knocked on doors and spoke with voters in Houston with Dr. Eliz Markowitz, who is running for State House District 28.
Texas is a key battleground state in the 2020 Presidential election, according to the Bloomberg campaign.
This is Bloomberg’s second trip to Texas since announcing his campaign in late November. He went to Plano on Dec. 7 to address the State Democratic Executive Committee Meeting of the Texas Democratic Party.
The campaign said it has committed to registering 500,000 voters from traditionally underrepresented groups.
Great afternoon spent going door to door with Dr. @ElizMarkowitz, who is fighting to support public schools and prevent discrimination. I’m glad to support her & hope everyone in her district will get out and vote to help turn this critical seat blue. pic.twitter.com/Nns4NUomCG— Mike Bloomberg (@MikeBloomberg) December 29, 2019
