Perez congratulated Texas Democrats for doubling their primary turnout from the last midterm primaries in 2014 and for competing in every congressional district in the state.
More than 1 million Democrats voted in the Democratic primary in Texas on Tuesday, while 1.5 million Republicans turned out for their primary.
The increased Democratic turnout appears to reflect a national trend, with Democrats more enthusiastic about voting in the midterm elections.
“What’s happening in Texas is part of a national trend. All across the country, Democrats are competing and winning in deep-red states,” Perez said. “And we’re going to keep fighting for working families and winning elections everywhere in November and beyond.”
