Rainy, cold weather doesn’t stop Baylor Dems

Members of the Baylor Democrats have been campaigning today in final attempts to support U.S. Representative Chet Edwards in his race against his strong opponent Bill Flores. Lizzy Joyce, president of the Baylor Democrats and a Houston senior at Baylor said the weather hasn’t put a damper on their efforts.

“It’ll be more difficult but we’re persevering and working through it,” Joyce said. “We have panchos and rain boots, so we’re prepared to work and go around knocking on doors.”

The well-known grass roots tactics of knocking on doors and wielding signs aren’t being halted by the less-than appealing weather.

“It is so much harder to get visibility, but we’re also making phone calls to people as well as going door to door, so that helps,” Joyce said.
