Howard Dean, former Vermont governor and former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, tweeted during the first presidential debate, "Notice Trump sniffing all the time. Coke user?" Our executive director responded on CNN.
This election cycle is getting dumber by the day, with claims questioning Clinton's health and now questioning the motives of the Clinton Foundation. Glenn and Ed defended the Clinton Foundation and drew a contrast with a candidate like Clinton who associates with humanitarians versus a candidate like Trump with close ties to Putin and Russia.
Trump's numbers look bad in the polls. All of them. Our executive director Ed Espinoza gives his take on the recent developments in the presidential race. Will Trump's change in staff help? Probably not. Can he follow through on his promises? Definitely not.

You might be asking yourself, what is Progress Texas Institute and how is it different from Progress Texas.
Progress Texas Insitute is our 501(c)(3) non-profit, which is an IRS tax status that allows donations to be deductible for federal income tax purposes. Work under this status has strict limits on lobbying and political activity. We do our issue education and civic engagement work under this status.
Progress Texas is our 501(c)(4) which is also a non-profit, but donations are NOT deductible for federal income tax purposes. Work under this status has more flexibility for lobbying and political activity.
We split our work between these two organizations depending on the nature of the project.
