Houston, TX – Today, Representative Lizzie Fletcher released her first advertisement of the 2020 cycle attempting to fool 7th District residents into believing her record is moderate and bipartisan. Unfortunately, Fletcher’s assertions of bipartisanship fall flat on the backdrop of her voting record in Congress. From allowing Democrats to block funding for the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to voting with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi 99% of the time, Fletcher’s priorities do not align with the interests of Houston voters.
As Houston residents face unprecedented challenges due to the coronavirus, they need assurance that their elected leaders will advocate for them at the federal level. Houston native and combat veteran Wesley Hunt is committed to protecting Houston’s Energy Corridor and defending the interests of our communities.
“Congresswoman, I agree that we need to bring Houston with us to Washington,” said Hunt. “That’s why it’s so disappointing that you’ve voted with Speaker Pelosi 99% of the time, even allowing Pelosi to strip funding for the Strategic Petroleum Reserve out of the CARES Act, which would’ve helped our energy industry at the height of its problems. That’s not standing up for the 7th District. That’s giving in to the DC partisan political infighting that has failed our community time after time.”
Hunt is a Houston native and a battle-tested leader willing to stand up for the 7th Congressional District. While his opponent Lizzie Fletcher made Pelosi Speaker of the House and refuses to condemn the most liberal of Democratic priorities, Wesley is a problem solver who will work with both sides to bring results home to the 7th District.
