In the ad, Fletcher recalls her decision to run for Congress in 2018 and her victory over a nine-term Republican incumbent to become the first Democrat in 50 years and first woman ever to represent Texas’ Seventh Congressional District. The ad highlights Fletcher’s work representing Houstonians in Congress for the past five years, including her work to restore reproductive rights, to ensure equality for all Americans, and to defend our democracy and the rule of law. Fletcher ends by reaffirming her commitment to build on this important work, and to deliver meaningful results for Texas’ Seventh Congressional District.
Active on issues important to the district’s diverse and dynamic community, Congresswoman Fletcher is Whip of the Pro-Choice Caucus, a Vice Chair of the Equality Caucus, and Chair of the New Democrat Coalition Trade Task Force. She is a member of several other coalitions, including among them the Voting Rights Caucus, the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, and the Black Maternal Health Caucus, where she works to pass legislation that matters to Houstonians.
TV Anchor: Donald Trump wins the presidency.
Congresswoman Fletcher: After that, I knew I needed to do something.
So I ran for Congress and became the first Democrat in 50 years and first woman ever to represent the Seventh District.
Since then, I’ve worked every day to bring a little more Houston to Washington, D.C.
To restore reproductive freedom, ensure equality, and defend our democracy.
I’m Lizzie Fletcher and I approve this message because our work is not done.
Now in her third term in Congress, Fletcher was first elected to represent Texas’ Seventh Congressional District in 2018, becoming the first Democrat in more than 50 years and the first woman ever to represent TX-07.
