1/11/2018. Veronica’s opponents know she is the candidate to beat in this race and are threatening to spend millions of dollars to attack her, her family, and her record of progress in El Paso County. But Veronica is happy to defend her record and make this race a referendum on her leadership and her record of expanding access to health care, taking on corruption, and protecting border communities.
Voters need to know that corrupt special interests are attacking Veronica because they know she is the progressive voice we need to stand up to Donald Trump. Just as she stood up to corruption and self-dealing in El Paso County, Veronica will stand up to President Trump and Republicans in Congress and give local families a voice in Washington. That’s why Veronica has the support of progressive leaders like Beto O’Rourke, the Latino Victory Fund and EMILY’s List. El Pasoans should not be confused – these attacks are distortions developed by Republicans and corrupt special interests in order to stop Veronica from fighting against their agenda.
12/21/2017. Veronica Escobar is a third-generation El Pasoan who took on corruption in El Paso County, transforming and modernizing local government as County Judge. Veronica has an unmatched record of expanding access to healthcare in El Paso. As County Judge, she championed the building of a children’s hospital that today is the only children’s hospital along the U.S. Mexico border. In Congress, she will stop Donald Trump and Republicans’ efforts to destroy our health care and will continue to fight for quality, affordable healthcare for everyone.
Veronica is running for Congress because President Trump and his followers in Washington are threatening the people and the values of our thriving border communities. They are trying to destroy our health care coverage and give away billions to wealthy special interests while raising taxes on the middle class and undermining our retirement security. Just as she stood up to corruption and self-dealing in El Paso County, Veronica will stand up to President Trump and Republicans in Congress and give local families a voice in Washington.
At a time when only one in five members of Congress are women, Veronica will stand up to the attacks on women’s health care. If elected, she would be the first Latina to represent Texas in Congress, where she will fight for women to receive equal pay for equal work and prevent health insurance companies from discriminating against women.
