District-wide Democratic run-off voters, plus non-runoff voters with perfect Democratic primary vote history need to read -- and all March 3 Democratic primary voters need to see on the go -- that leading progressive veterans organizations have vetted Kim Olson and believe she is the only candidate with the proven experience, leadership skills and strength to take on Donald Trump and deliver on our values. Among the first women to command an operational flying squadron, Kim broke barriers that allowed more women to lead. Serving on the frontlines in Iraq, Kim learned first-hand what happens when politicians ignore the experts and fail to lead.
Getting beyond the coronavirus crisis will take battle-tested leaders. Colonel Kim Olson has led through chaotic situations and is strong enough to stand up to Donald Trump and the Republicans in Washington.
With Donald Trump trying to destroy Obamacare during a global pandemic, Kim will stand up to Trump to protect our care and expand access to affordable healthcare, ensure the Coronavirus recovery puts people first, and rebuild Texas’ economy so it works for everyone.
After retiring as a full-bird Colonel, Kim returned home to find women veterans facing challenges from combat trauma. Colonel Olson’s new mission was leading Grace After Fire, a non-profit that helped these heroes get back on their feet.
Kim has been endorsed by the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram.
The Dallas Morning News says “"Olson exudes the leadership required to find bipartisan solutions to chip away at the country’s most pressing problems.”
The Forth Worth Star Telegram says Kim is “the party’s best bet to capture a seat long held by Republican Kenny Marchant.”
From the Dallas Morning News endorsement [1/29/20]: "Olson exudes the leadership required to find bipartisan solutions to chip away at the country’s most pressing problems... Democrats have a chance to elect a leader who can find allies in Washington and offer a unifying style of leadership."
From the Fort Worth Star Telegram endorsement [2/10/20]: "We recommend voters go with Olson, whose military service and good showing as a statewide candidate in 2018 indicate she’s the party’s best bet to capture a seat long held by Republican Rep. Kenny Marchant."
Kim Olson helped create Grace After Fire, a non-profit that took on the Veteran’s Administration and state government to get women veterans and their families the care they deserve. Under Kim’s leadership, Grace after fire helped Thousands of women veterans get back on their feet after returning from combat.
Kim understands the challenges families face. With the coronavirus pandemic exposing the failure of Donald Trump and Washington politicians, we need Kim’s leadership to solve problems and prioritize what’s important:
