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 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).

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.
