Houston, TX – Today, Wesley Hunt, Houston native and combat veteran, released a new TV advertisement, Daddy Duty. As the husband of a nurse practitioner and father to an 18-month-old baby girl, Wesley understands the importance of quality healthcare at affordable costs. Wesley is committed to working across the aisle to bring meaningful and sustainable reforms to our healthcare system.
“Healthcare isn’t a political issue; it’s a family issue. And Houston families need to know that they have an advocate who is fighting to improve their access to high quality care,” said Hunt. “We can continue Houston’s legacy as a leading innovator in medicine and increase the affordability of our medical services. As a young father, I understand the priorities of parents seeking to respond to any illness or ailment their child may have; and as the husband of a nurse practitioner, I know the challenges our medical professionals face as they work to provide every Houstonian with high quality care. With the right leadership, we can bring professionals, patients, and everyone in between into the conversation as we create a more affordable, sustainable, and innovative healthcare system.”
“While Wesley Hunt supports commonsense policies to address the rising cost of healthcare services while protecting coverage for those with pre-existing conditions, Lizzie Fletcher’s support for expanded government-run insurance would be detrimental to Houston families,” said Communications Director Jackie Modesett. “Fletcher’s plan would cost taxpayers $1.5 trillion, threaten the solvency of Medicare, and undermine employer-sponsored healthcare for millions.”
Hunt is a Houston native and 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.
