Donate to Dr. Eliz Markowitz for Texas House District 28


Dr. Eliz Markowitz is running in the November 2020 election runoff to represent State House District 28. She is a native Texan, raised in Sugar Land by a teacher and an oil worker. Dr. Eliz is an expert on healthcare technology and education and has spent her career advocating for reforms to Texas standardized testing. She currently works as an instructor and textbook author with the Princeton Review, where she trains other teachers across the nation. Dr. Eliz earned her Bachelor’s in Computer Science from Trinity University, two Master Degrees in Technology and Healthcare from UT San Antonio and UT Health Science Center Houston, and her doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Houston.



Dr. Eliz Markowitz is running in the single most important race in Texas this year -- the special election for House District 28, which is Democrats' only chance to flip a seat in the entire state in 2019. After Barack Obama lost this district by 30 points in 2012, Hillary Clinton lost by 10 points in 2016, and then Beto O'Rourke lost this district by only 3 points in 2018 -- that means 2019 is our chance to finally flip this critical seat. Dr. Eliz has been endorsed by Annie's List, the DLCC, Daily Kos, the Texas AFL-CIO, the Network for Public Education,Texas Parent PAC, and other groups across the state and nation that recognize the criticality of this race. As it is the sole competitive race in Texas in 2019, this race is being considered a bellwether for Democratic power in the state and Democratic chances in Texas for 2020.
