Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“Congresswoman Escobar’s leadership exemplifies what it means to be a Texas Democrat. The contrast between Trump and Congresswoman Escobar couldn’t be clearer. Congresswoman Escobar offered a picture of an America that is warm and full of hope. Nuestra congresista nos ha hecho orgullosos.
“After three years in office, Trump has failed to deliver. He is corrupt, ineffective, and has broken his promises to hardworking Americans. From his impeachment to continuing to sabotage the Affordable Care Act to massive tax breaks for billionaires to tearing children away from their parents and locking them in cages, Trump has completely abandoned Americans and his presidency is a failure.
“Democrats are rolling up our sleeves and ready to make our vision a reality. We look forward to electing a Democratic president.”
