In the nation’s first state primary election of 2018, pro-liberty Texas Republican Mayes Middleton defeated incumbent Wayne Faircloth, R-Galveston, to become the Republican candidate for State Rep. of District 23. This victory took place a little over a month after Young Americans for Liberty announced its newest campaign, Operation Win at the Door.

Young Americans for Liberty’s get-out-the-vote grassroots efforts were instrumental in Middleton’s 14-point landslide win. The organization plans to endorse a total of 30 state representative candidates for the November midterm elections. Young Americans for Liberty is committed to endorsing viable candidates who promise to lower taxes and fight for civil and individual liberties, the Bill of Rights (particularly the First, Second, and Fourth Amendments), and smaller government.
