Arlington, TX, April 5 – Jana Lynne Sanchez, Democratic Candidate for US Congress (TX06) said today that her campaign had raised more than $250,000 in the primary so far. In the first quarter, the campaign raised more than $104,000 – its best quarter yet. The campaign has received 5,757 contributions of an average size of just less than $44. She is in a run-off for the Democratic nomination.

Sanchez is the Healthcare Champion with a detailed plan for how to make sure every person in this country has affordable healthcare. For more information on her healthcare plan, please see: She is also fighting for better jobs for our high school graduates, well-funded public schools and immigration reform. Sanchez is also a strong proponent of Congressional term limits. She is the granddaughter of migrant farm workers who settled in Ellis County in the 1950s. She credits excellent public school teachers in Waxahachie for her being able to go to Rice University, which she could afford thanks for federal financial aid, multiple scholarships and the support of family.

The campaign has also had major local endorsements including Texas AFL-CIO and former DFW news anchor Gloria Campos.

The funds raised 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.
