Press Release

Indivisible Supports Jessica Cisneros in the Final Stretch of Her Fearless Campaign: This Race Is Not Over

WASHINGTON -

Today, Indivisible's co-executive director Leah Greenberg issued the following statement on developments in the Democratic Party primary for Texas’s 28th Congressional District: 

“With our hearts still heavy as we mourn with the 21 families in Uvalde, we are more committed than ever to fighting, even when the odds are stacked against us. Fighting for compassion, for reason, for responsive leaders that keep all families safe. Jessica Cisneros is the embodiment of that spirit, and we are with her 100% in this last leg of her campaign. 

“Once again, Jessica Cisneros’s underdog campaign and the local activists who’ve supported it have brought one of corporate America’s favorite Democrats to within a couple hundred votes. This is an incredible feat. Jessica’s fiercely voter-focused campaign sent the corporate Democratic machine into a frenzy. In the face of one of the nastiest, best-funded smear efforts this year, Jessica has held her head high, and been a model of compassionate, effective leadership. 

“This race is not over. There are still hundreds of ballots to be tallied. It has not been called by any news organization because it's too close to call. The only person declaring this race over is Henry Cuellar, but we know that every last eligible vote needs to be counted first.

“Democrats need more leaders like Jessica Cisneros to help deliver true safety and security for all families. We want Jessica on the ballot in November in TX-28, and so should all Democrats.”
