Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“Congressman Gene Green has served our state with humility, compassion, and tenacity. With over four decades in elected office, Green has held the title of State Representative, State Senator, Congressman, and above all, Texas Democrat.
“We admire Gene Green’s commitment to our shared progressive values during his entire career as a public servant. From providing free vaccinations to the children who needed it, helping students afford college, and fighting to expand health care as a member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, our state is stronger for his service.
“On behalf of all Texas Democrats, we thank Congressman Green for his tireless work on behalf of our state and wish him and his family all the best.”
