Over the last few years, San Antonio State Senator Roland Gutierrez has become a familiar voice to Progress Texas podcast listeners, mostly related to his steadfast support of and advocacy for the families of the victims of the deadly school shooting in Uvalde, which is in his district. This time, as he's running for the Democratic nomination to challenge Ted Cruz for Texas' junior seat in that chamber, we've invited Senator Gutierrez on for a wide-ranging talk covering the issues most important to Texas progressives, to the continued prosperity of our country, and to the very survival of American democracy.

An important note for our listeners: we have extended a similar invitation to U.S. Representative Colin Allred of Dallas, who is also running for the Democratic nomination to challenge Ted Cruz. As of publishing time, we have not heard back, but are hopeful that he'll accept and join us. Stay tuned!
