Congresswoman Veronica Escobar announced earlier today that she will seek a third term as the Congressional Representative for the 16th U.S. Congressional District in Texas. Barring a primary challenge, which I don’t see happening, she will probably easily win reelection. No matter who the Republicans, who are mired in chaos and infighting, might find to go up against her.
The El Paso GOP’s prospects are Irene Armendariz-Jackson, who Escobar easily vanquished in last November’s Congressional election, and Samuel Williams, who would be a fresh sacrificial lamb for the El Paso GOP.
The 2020 Republican candidate for State Senate District 29, Bethany Hatch announced a couple of weeks ago on Facebook that she was moving to Fort Worth, so I’m not sure how available she’d be.
Veronica Escobar has helped pass legislation concerning gun control, equality, the environment and climate change, as well as veterans and military personnel. She has also outspoken in her support for comphrensive immigration reform.
I can vouch for her that she is also an ally of the disabled and for autistic individuals.
