Waxahachie, TX, April 13, 2017 - “Political correctness run amuck,” is how Congressional candidate TX-6 Jana Lynne Sanchez describes the new rules for Rep. Joe Barton Town Halls.

Waxahachie, TX, USA – April 13, 2017 – Candidate for US Congress TX-06, Jana Lynne Sanchez, announces today that her campaign received contributions of $20,237.49 raised in the first two months since declaring her candidacy. Sanchez vows to raise unprecedented funds to challenge 17-term incumbent Joe Barton and aims to raise approximately $1.5 million through the general election. The money was raised from a combination of contributions via her extensive social media network and from among friends and former colleagues. The donations range in size from $1 to $2,700, and the average amount was less than $100. Sanchez is a former Democratic fundraiser, former correspondent for the Reuters news agency, and the owner of a successful communications agency she co-founded in 2005 in London and Amsterdam (although she is now only a silent partner in the business).
Back late 2015, when I had been home from Europe about a year, my uncle told me he was running against Tea Party incumbent Paul Perry for Ellis County Commissioner. My uncle, who spent his entire life working in construction, was very angry that he was riding on roads riddled with pot holes while Perry was waging a publicity campaign on federal issues over which he had ZERO jurisdiction.
