Just got this in the inbox.. For folks in my former CD-23 neck of the mesquite, this is a must-read.
Moments ago at a press conference in D.C., Eva Longoria and Henry B. Munoz III announced the launch of the Latino Victory Project. The LVP is an ambitious, non-partisan effort to build political power within the Latino community to ensure the voices of Latinos are reflected at every level of government and in the policies that drive our nation.The political arm of LVP is Latino Victory PAC, intended to engage Latinos and develop a pipeline of Latino candidates at every level of government.
In addition to launching the LVP, a slate of PAC-endorsed candidates was also announced including Congressman Pete Gallego (TX-23).
Cristobal Alex, President of Latino Victory Project PAC said, “Pete Gallego has distinguished himself as an outstanding public servant. From his passion for helping veterans and military families, to his push for immigration reform, and down to his cowboy boots – Pete Gallego is truly representative of Texas’ 23rd district. The 23rd district could have no better representation than Pete Gallego.”
Congressman Pete Gallego added, “When Latinos do well, our country does well. It is always an honor to be supported by Texans – and I thank Eva Longoria for spearheading this bold, and much-needed initiative. The Latino Victory Project works to make our country stronger by ensuring that our government is truly representative of its people. As someone who went from being a young Latino in a tiny West Texas town to the United States Congress, the subject of Latino political empowerment is near to my heart. I am humbled by the support of this outstanding organization, value their vote of confidence, and will continue to work to be the best voice for every constituent in Texas’ 23rd district.”
