We're living in some serious times. And during serious times, we need serious people who know how to get the job done! While we are a long way off from deciding who we are going to endorse in the race for President of the United States, and the 18th Congressional District of Texas, it's never too early for us to start researching the candidates. So, to this end, please do your very best to make a wise voting decision on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. Also, please do not forget that there are still a few Democratic and Republican runoff races that will be decided on Tuesday, July 14, 2020, in the state of Texas. To this end, Congresswoman Lee's Republican opponent will be decided on July 14th. Wendell Champion and Robert Cadena are the two Republicans who are vying for the Republican nomination in the race for the 18th Congressional District of Texas.

I don't necessarily agree with every decision I've seen our "ELECTED OFFICIALS" in Texas make over the course of the last few weeks. However, I am a firm believer that we must give credit where credit is due. I've sat back and watched a lot of folks grand-stand and hog the cameras seeking all the media attention they could get -- but not Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Ever since this war against the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic got underway, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee has been making all the right moves. She's been putting in some serious work, and in my opinion, I believe her efforts should be applauded. And the remarkable thing about Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee is that she's been doing all this work, even though she's in the midst of a bitter re-election campaign. In case you don't remember, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee was challenged by six fellow Democrats back on Tuesday, March 3, 2020, in the Democrat Party primary race for the 18th Congressional District of Texas. And believe it or not, she put on a dazzling show of power and grace as she beat back her challengers by garnering an astonishing 77.08% of the vote. I must say, I'm very impressed that she was able to dismantle her field of challengers without a runoff. As a refresher, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee received 49,729 votes, for 77.08% of the vote to finish first. Marc Flores received 5,353 votes, for 8.30% of the vote to finish second. Bimal Patel received 2,456 votes, for 3.81% of the vote to finish third. Jerry Ford, Sr. received 2,417 votes for 3.75% of the vote to finish fourth. Stevens Orozco received 2,180 votes, for 3.38% of the vote to finish fifth. Michael Allen received 1,672 votes for 2.59% of the vote to finish sixth. And Donovan Boson rounded out the field of people challenging Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee back on Tuesday, Tuesday, March 3, 2020, in the Democratic Party primary race for the 18th Congressional District by finishing seventh.
