Veronica Escobar

Incumbent

Rep. Escobar (TX-16) is a third-generation El Pasoan, and was elected to Congress in 2018 after having served two terms as County Judge. She is Freshman Co-Representative to Leadership, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus’ Freshman Representative, and Vice Chair of the Women’s Caucus, among other leadership roles.

In office, Escobar helped pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. The bill is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote.
