DALLAS, Feb. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Political strategy and campaigning company, Sole Strategies, signs with leading civil rights attorney, Lee Merritt, in his race for Democratic Texas Attorney General. Sole Strategies will be leading Merritt’s online strategy, helping expand his public reach and impact. He will be running against a number of other democratic candidates from which a winner will be chosen March 1st.
Lee Merritt is a nationally renowned civil rights activist and attorney fighting for justice. He’s advised on high profile cases that involved the killing of Black people by police, including George Floyd. Currently, he is the lawyer in the case of Ahmaud Arbery’s murder, representing Arbery’s mother in the trial. "Texas deserves an attorney general that will fight for the constitutional rights of all citizens," says Merritt. Originally fueled to run for office because of the attack on voting rights, Merritt aims to uphold civil liberties and make a significant impact on racial injustice.
