Bexar County Young Democrats Endorse Derrick Crowe


Group's support builds on Crowe's win at the Bexar County Democrats 2018 Straw Poll last weekend

The Bexar County Young Democrats on Sunday announced their endorsement for Derrick Crowe in the 2018 Democratic Primary for Texas Congressional District 21. The group voted on Saturday evening and announced their endorsement the following day in a post on their Facebook page.

“The rigged political system is failing young people in this country,” Crowe said. “Last week, Republicans put forward a plan to end the tax deduction for student loan interest and to bankrupt graduate students while giving tax breaks for private jets and outsourcing. That’s in addition to the GOP’s embarrassing inability to act on the basic fact of human-driven climate change. Young people need new representation.”

The Bexar County Young Democrats endorsement follows Crowe’s decisive win at the Bexar County Democrats 2018 Primary Straw Poll event on Nov. 11. The Crowe campaign attributed its momentum in Bexar County to its early, consistent focus on the area in the race to replace U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, who is retiring at the end of 2018.

“I’m proud to have won the Bexar County Young Democrats’ endorsement this weekend,” Crowe said. “I’m honored, and I look forward to working with them to win this race and fight for College for All, urgent climate change action, and higher wages.”

Crowe is a former Democratic congressional staffer, small business owner, and nonprofit professional endorsed by Democracy for America and Blue America. His platform includes support for real climate change action, Medicare For All, a $15/hour minimum wage, and College for All. Learn more:
