WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List’s voter mobilization and education project, Women Vote, announced a partnership with CHC BOLD PAC to educate Texas voters about Veronica Escobar’s record. The partnership will highlight Escobar’s strong leadership against corruption, her work as a community leader, and her strong progressive roots. Three ads will run from Friday through Election Day on March 6: “Border Hero,” “Heroina de la Frontera,” and “Progressive Fighter.” The ads will run on general market broadcast and Spanish-language television.
Congressman Tony Cardenas, CHC BOLD PAC chairman released the following statement: “The American people have made it perfectly clear that they are sick of partisan bickering, divisive rhetoric, and destructive policies. They want real leaders and real solutions, and that's exactly why BOLD PAC is proud to support Veronica.”
Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement: “Poised to be the first Latina from Texas to be elected to Congress, Veronica is an experienced leader who will fight tirelessly to expand economic opportunity for El Paso’s hardworking families and dynamic border communities, and make sure their voices are heard in Washington. EMILYs List is proud to stand with her.”
