Another Democratic Star Candidate Is Born In The State Of Texas, M J Hegar

A few days ago, my dear friend Mary sent me a video about a woman who is running for a congressional seat in Texas. MJ Hegar is pretty amazing … a war hero who was awarded a purple heart as well as a Distinguished Flying Cross after her helicopter was shot down over Afghanistan. I was impressed and planned to try to squeeze a piece about her into my schedule this week, but then I discovered that our friend Gronda had covered Ms. Hegar as well as two other pretty remarkable candidates for the November mid-terms. Why re-invent the wheel, right? So, I share with you this afternoon Gronda’s piece about three up-and-coming candidates to keep a close eye on this election season … and be sure to watch the short video titled “Doors” – it is fascinating! Many thanks, Gronda!

There is another Democratic star in the State of Texas besides Beto O’Rourke who in campaigning against the republican Senator Ted Cruz. Her name is MJ Hegar. You will be hearing a lot more about her in the near future as she will be competing against Rep. John Carter in a dark-red district in central Texas to be its next US Congressperson.

She’s joining a handful of other first time democratic candidates who have that star quality like Randy Bryce, the steel worker from Wisconsin and Amy McGrath of Kentucky, a first military female fighter pilot.

  1. Glad you and Gronda are on the case, even my Texas in laws hadn’t yet seen this and my sister-in-law’s instant reaction was ‘go girl!’. Let’s hope she does. Fantastic woman, fantastic video.


  2. OH MY GOD! MJ is wonderful. I watched the Doors video and my heart literally exploded with joy. Real woman, real hero, real integrity. Hopping on Twitter to keep spreading that video clip. 😀


  3. Dear Jill,

    I love the comments supporting her, MJ Hegar. She has potential to go much further. Thanks as always for your support and for this reblog.

    You are getting awfully close to another milestone.

    Hugs, Gronda

    • Yes, I think everyone is impressed with her … I certainly am! Yes, the blog is growing, but the number of followers is misleading, for on the average day I get only between 175-300 views, so most of the followers likely read one blog, clicked ‘follow’, and never returned. 😉 Hugs!!!

  4. Wouldn’t it be ironic if Trump cured the American malady of political indifference? Good people seem to be cropping up here and there and the Congress after mid-term elections might be much improved. It certainly can’t be worse!!
