The campaign is pleased to announce we are launching our field operations with the appointment of our first full-time paid staff, Director of Field Operations, Rebeca Ornelas.
We are looking for a day-to-day campaign manager with experience having worked on several Democratic congressional races in Texas or the South. Job responsibilities include: oversight and execution of fundraising (digital and traditional), media relations, field operations (managing a paid field ops staff person, who will run this), digital media, and liaising with consultants.

More than a few people were surprised, ok shocked, to see that I decided to run for US Congress. Honestly, I never ever planned to run for office of any sort. Unfortunately I have no choice. As I constantly say: I never slept on November 8, but I sure as hell woke up on November 9.

My grandfather, Lonjino Rodriguez Sanchez came to the US without documentation from Mexico in 1912. He became a citizen in 1969, one year before he passed away. During his many years as an undocumented worker he fathered 27 US citizen children here.

Most of his descendants became grandparents and great grandparents and the majority of my extended family lives in Ellis County today. Immigration is central to my story, my family is central to the American story, and I am a believer in the American Dream.

The Tea Party is one state legislature away from being able to call a Constitutional Convention.

Most of America has been unaware of the true motives of this party while they quietly took over state legislature after state legislature and Democratic leaders either did nothing to stop it or were ineffective.
