Group Description

Blue Dog Democrats are Yellow Dog Democrats that hold to traditional, moderate-to-conservative-views on certain issues based upon deeply held personal, cultural or religious beliefs, and may otherwise be Progressive and Populist, but have been “choked blue” by increasing Party opposition to these views. Anyone that believes that classical liberalism and traditional conservatism are not always mutually exclusive are encouraged to join us.

Our aim:
-To ensure that Democrats with moderate-to-conservative-views maintain a voice in our Party.
-To guarantee that the diversity of our Party remains truly diverse by including a full spectrum of political viewpoints less we become just the flipside of our narrow-minded Extreme Right opponents.
-When possible we hope moderate-to-conservative-views will complement Progressive and Populist opinions and result in better policy than when considered separately.

Collectively we will take back Texas by providing government that is truly accountable and responsive to the real majority - ALL Texans.


Moderate voters in the 2008 Texas Democratic Primary stay steady while conservative voters increase

62% of voters in the 2008 Texas Democratic Primary describe thier ideology as moderate or conservative. Despite all the talk of Republicans voting for Clinton to create conflict, Obama actually received more Republican votes than Clinton (The Texas Blue Dog Coalition is not endorsing a Primary candidate, we encourage our members to support the candidate of their choice).
