Gina Ortiz Jones (Texas - District 23) Will Help Us Take Back the House

We're all rooting for Beto O'Rourke as he takes on Ted Cruz in Texas. I want to tell you about Gina Ortiz Jones, another Lone Star State candidate in an important and exciting race.

Gina is the daughter of immigrants. She worked hard to make her American dream come true: earning a four-year Air Force ROTC scholarship to attend Boston University and serving as a U.S. Air Force intelligence officer under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

Let's show Gina that we're behind her all the way. Please take a minute now to chip in to help her send incumbent Will Hurd packing on Nov. 6.

Gina's home district (TX-23) is one of that state's largest. It runs for hundreds of miles along the border with Mexico. Her opponent Will Hurd, has distinguished himself by claiming to be independent thinker while marching in step with Trump and Paul Ryan. He's voted the party line more than 95 percent of the time!

He's part of the Republican majority that wants to give tax cuts to corporations and the richest Americans. He has sided with corporate polluters over working families that represent his district every chance he gets.

That's not going over well with West Texas voters, or with me.

Help me in supporting Gina Ortiz Jones in her effort to unseat Will Hurd. She knows better what West Texas wants, and what progressive-minded Americans want.
