March 3: Election Day
Vote on a newspaper ad to defeat John Cornyn
The Payback Project is a new campaign from the national Indivisible team targeting the GOP senators who voted for a coverup in the impeachment trial. One of their tactics is to take out a newspaper ad going after certain senators—including John Cornyn!
(After you vote you’ll be directed to an optional donation page. Indivisible Austin does not receive direct funding from the national Indivisible Project. If you prefer donating to your local group, you can do so here.)
Tell Cornyn and Cruz that their votes for acquittal will erode Democracy
If the impeachment trial goes as expected—acquittal without a single witness called—our senators will be responsible for a historical coverup. Their names will be in history books, listed among the enablers of our Democracy’s downfall. It’s time to call and let them know.

Here are some of the candidates running to defeat John Cornyn:
- Chris Bell, former Member of Congress and Houston City Council
- Michael Cooper, pastor, community organizer and former candidate for lieutenant governor
- Amanda Edwards, an at-large Houston City Council member
- Annie Garcia, nonprofit leader

- Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez, founder of Jolt Texas
- Adrian Ocegueda, former gubernatorial candidate
- Royce West, Texas state senator
There are competitive races in all of our districts that have Republican incumbents. Several of the candidates that Indivisible Austin endorsed in the 2018 general election—Mike Siegel, Rick Kennedy, and Julie Oliver—are running again in 2020.
In 2018, 17 State House Republicans won by less than 10 points. Eight of those won by less than five points. Beto won in nine of those districts, and in all but one of the counties where these districts live.
Let’s talk about the climate crisis…and the Super Bowl
We hope the team of your choice was victorious! (Go KC?) The city in which the big game was played is sinking into the sea.
