Fears Nachawati cofounders, Bryan Fears and Majed Nachawati, were among a small group of prominent Texas lawyers hosting Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on a campaign-related stop in Dallas on Wednesday.
Mr. Fears and Mr. Nachawati joined Lisa Blue Baron, Dori and Russell Budd, Lisa and Peter Kraus, John Driscoll, and Wendy and Marc Stanley in hosting a lunchtime fundraiser for Mr. Biden, who currently leads a group of more than 20 seeking the Democratic nomination for president.
The former vice president and longtime U.S. senator was on a two-day swing through Texas, with stops in Houston and Dallas. In Houston, he held a town-hall style event with teachers to promote a new education plan.
Writes the Texas Tribune:
Biden’s Texas visit was his first time on the campaign trail since President Donald Trump took the remarkable position of siding with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in deriding Biden as a “low IQ individual.” As Biden headed to Houston on Tuesday, his campaign issued a statement calling Trump’s comments “beneath the dignity of the office.”
On Tuesday, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings announced his support for the former vice president, calling him the candidate who can defeat President Trump. “Job No. 1 is to make sure Donald Trump is not president for four more years,” Rawlings told The Dallas Morning News on Wednesday. “Joe Biden is the candidate I know will beat him.”
