The name Joseph Kopser might sound familiar – especially if you live in the central part of Texas. Kopser very narrowly lost a 2018 Congressional race to Republican Chip Roy.
It looked like Kopser might have a bright future as a Democratic politician. But, at least for the near term, any political aspirations he may harbor appear to be going a different direction.
“When I was going around as someone who was an Army vet, businessman, as well as somebody who was trying to bring folks together – the fact that people were stuck up on my political label and not able to go past that, just was really frustrating,” Kopser says.
He’s just launched a movement/political action committee called USTomorrow he says is going to fix that fixation on party politics.
