Ground game: Marijuana on ballots a ‘secret weapon’ for O’Rourke in governor’s race | Local News

Ground Game Texas, the group of progressive Democrats that has led grass-roots efforts to decriminalize marijuana in cities across Texas, is celebrating ballot initiatives in Killeen in Harker Heights, believing they will give gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke an advantage at the polls in November.

“This is huge news in the race to defeat Greg Abbott,” according to an emailed news letter from Ground Game, based in Austin. “Here’s why we’re excited by these wins: Harker Heights and Killeen are diverse and quickly-growing cities. If we boost turnout by just a few thousand votes, we can give a huge boost to Beto O’Rourke. With your help, we can decriminalize marijuana … and deliver a secret weapon to Beto O’Rourke,” the Democrat vying to unseat Republican Gov. Abbott on Nov. 8.
