End Citizens United and Latino Victory Fund have endorsed the former judge of El Paso, Veronica Escobar in her bid to run for the Texas 16th Congressional District. Escobar, if elected into office, would become the first member from Latin America to be elected in the state of Texas as a member of Congress. The president of Latino Victory Fund, Cristobal J. Alex said that Escobar has a proven track record of leadership and has been a champion for the working American citizens in El Paso. Alex, who also hails from El Paso, said that Escobar would have the opportunity to become a powerful voice for equality and justice in El Paso since she has previously served as a county judge.
Democracy means one person, one vote. It does not mean billionaires like Sheldon Adelson buying elections. Our job:
-Overturn Citizens United
-Move toward public funding of elections
-End voter suppressionhttps://t.co/dg9j3PjHC1

Alex also said that Veronica Escobar has committed to raise the minimum wage for thousands of workers in Texas, create employment opportunities and improve access to quality and affordable healthcare to the residents of Texas. Escobar runs for office at a critical time when the welfare and rights of Texans have been under constant attack. She has the necessary experience and grit to fight back against the Republican majority in Congress and the dangerous agendas of President Donald Trump. The President of End Citizens United, Tiffany Muller, noted that Veronica Escobar had built her career standing up for justice and upholding the rule of law.
Muller added that Escobar would bring that experience to the US Congress as a loud voice for the interests of millions of the working families in Texas. End Citizens United endorsed Escobar because of the belief that she can fix the broken politics in Washington and the failed policies of President Donald Trump. Veronica Escobar has also said that she will not be accepting campaign money from the super PACs. Muller added that End Citizens United was glad to have a working relationship with Veronica Escobar to clean up the broken politics in the halls of Washington and make Capitol Hill work for the benefit of all employed Texans, and not the few with most money and influence.
Veronica Escobar is a strong advocate for overturning Citizens United and its discredited philosophies of giving more and more to those with the most and hoping that prosperity trickles down to everyone else. Escobar is a strong supporter of the DISCLOSE Act which will force secret donors to reveal their financial contributions to the American political process.
