The field director of a group that has the goal of changing the state of Texas’s political leanings will visit Lubbock this week.

Battleground Texas Field Director Alex Steele will present the goals and methods of the group’s effort to “turn Texas blue,” by making the Democrat Party more popular in the state.

Lubbock Democrats will also provide feedback to Steele and the organization on what they believe will work in West Texas, as well as the challenges which will likely be faced by the group.

The meeting will be held in room 69 of the Human Sciences Building on the Texas Tech campus from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 26th. The Human Sciences Building is located between the Student Union Building and the Administration Building.

The event is sponsored by the Texas Tech Student Democrats and the Lubbock County Democratic Party.
