Our Purpose

The 134 PAC is the leading voice for Texas Democrats and rural county parties in Texas. Our purpose is to advocate, connect and educate organizers, activists, candidates, and urban Democrats about the needs, difficulties and challenges of rural Democrats. We also provide assistance, mentorship, networking opportunities, and other resources to grow and strengthen the party. We accomplish this by fostering partnerships with county chairs, non-profit organizations, activists, and other like-minded groups.

Our Mission

Our mission is to support and strengthen the Democratic Party and county party organizations in rural Texas. In part, we do this through providing grants of financial support that include candidate support, voter turnout support, county services mentorship programs, and other political infrastructure programs.

Our Vision

Our vision is to build a better Texas by growing rural Democratic County Parties and increasing the competitiveness of Democratic candidates throughout rural Texas.

The 134 and Beyond

Although originally founded to focus on the needs of rural counties in Western Texas, The 134 PAC's scope is expanding beyond geography. Counties outside The 134 have reached out seeking to be included in what we are trying to do and we welcome them.  Our programs, assistance and grants are by no means limited to 134 counties. We are here to help rural Democrats, wherever they may live.
