For Immediate Release

Waxahachie, TX, November 30, 2017 – Jana Lynne Sanchez, Democratic Candidate for US Congress (TX06) said she looks forward to a spirited and issues-focused debate with whichever Republican challenger emerges from the Republican primary now that Rep. Joe Barton has announced he will not run again. Sanchez says she respects the decision of Rep. Barton to step down and she thanks him for creating an environment that allows us to focus on issues.

“We are prepared to fight any Republican contender and win in this open race. We are raising enough money, connecting with enough voters and are confident that we are addressing the issues of greatest importance to constituents – better jobs for our high school graduates, well-funded public schools and affordable, universal healthcare. People are sick of partisan ideology and division and just want good government,” she says.

Sanchez is also a strong proponent of Congressional term limits.

Earlier this week Sanchez announced that her campaign has raised more than $100,000 in its record-breaking campaign. The amount raised to date is roughly double the amount raised by any Democratic candidate running in this district in more than 20 years and for the entire race, primary and general.

The funds come primarily from the DFW region, including the district, which spans from Arlington to Corsicana, although a large number of national grassroots donors have contributed. The campaign counts more than 1,200 donations from $1 to the maximum of $2,700.

The candidate, staff and volunteers have been attending events around the district since February and walking precincts to connect with voters since May.

Sanchez has been endorsed by the Latino Majority PAC, Climate Hawk Vote PAC and in September, Sanchez received the support of the New Democratic Coalition PAC, representing 61 members of US Congress who are pro-growth problem solvers.

Sanchez will appear in the Ennis Lights Parade this evening and is available for comment.
