TEXAN FILES BALLOT APPLICATION
Linda Vega Files to Run for U.S. Senate
Houston, Texas: Houstonian and Texas native, Linda Vega, formally filed her application to be on the ballot as a U.S. Senate candidate. Ms. Vega announced in October that she would lead a challenge against the incumbent, Senator John Cornyn, in the 2014 Republican primary.
Ms. Vega released the following statement this morning.
I am not a career politician, and I will not have the war chest that Senator Cornyn has. However, I have a passion for Texas and the citizens of Texas. I believe Texans are ready for a change. Too many politicians are trampling on our Constitution and the citizens are tired of it. They are ready for another voice in the Senate who is willing to stand up, fight for them, and defend their Constitutional Rights.
As a single mother and a small business owner, I am aware of the demands on women. Women are caring for the values of family and community, many own businesses, and many are moving into leadership roles, yet they are not being represented. Women need a strong voice to express their needs and viewpoints. I am looking forward to being that woman.
Senator Cornyn is running for re-election for his third six-year term but he no longer represents what the state of Texas needs. It is time for Texas values to be represented in Washington, D.C.
Ms. Vega looks forward to meeting more citizens of the Great State of Texas and discussing the issues that are important to them. Ms. Vega’s win would also be historical as she would be the first Latino woman from the state of Texas to be a Senator.
