A look back at our Second Annual Blue in the Heart of Texas. Thank you to everyone who came out and made it our most successful summit yet.
This February take some Dallas Democrats swag and a Turning Texas Blue T-shirt home for the Democrat(s) in your life. Keeping Dallas County "Blue" costs nearly $190,000 annually and we sincerely appreciate every dollar!
Congratulations to the scores of Dallas Democrats sworn in to office on New Year's Day 2015!

Constable Cleo Steele died last week after complications from heart surgery.
Steele was one of the first African Americans to graduate from Southern Methodist University School of Law, and he was also one of the first attorneys to sign a petition supporting the desegregation of the Dallas Independent School District in the early 1970s.
Dallas County Democratic Party Chair Darlene Ewing issued the following statement:
“We are deeply saddened at the unexpected passing of Constable Steele. Our community will miss this longtime public servant.”
“The Dallas County Democratic Party family lifts up the Steele family in our thoughts and prayers tonight and extends our condolences to his loved ones and many friends and colleagues.”
UPDATE: Due to weather, services for Constable and former JP Cleo Steele have changed.
Wake: Wednesday, Feb. 25, 6pm to 8pm
Funeral: Thursday, Feb. 26, 12noon
Both services will be held at Good Street Baptist Church, 3110 Bonnie View Rd, Dallas, TX 75216
