I’ve known Sean McCaffity since he was in high school—and probably since I was in high school, but I’m not entirely sure. We both debated in high school and college, although Sean was more successful than I ever was—he won the National Debate Tournament (NDT) in both 1995 and 1996.
Sean’s runing for congress in Texas-03, where the incumbent, Van Taylor, is a first-term, Tea Party Republican who won
reelection in 2018 by a ten-point margin (54-44). So it’s safe to say that Sean, if he prevails in the primary, is facing an uphill battle. But Sean is exactly the kind of extraordinarily smart, energetic, and compassionate Democrat that we need to support if we want to increase our margins in the House.
I hope to update readers as his campaign progresses.
