AFP Action Texas Senior Advisor Genevieve Collins issued the following statement on Rep. Tony Gonzales:

“Our dedicated staff and volunteers are thrilled to get out and connect with voters to support Rep. Tony Gonzales. Gonzales has broken through the usual partisanship and has found ways to deliver solutions for his community, including dealing with the challenges at the border with his Bipartisan Border Solutions Act. In Congress, he will continue to be a champion on the issues Texans care about most: increased educational opportunities for our children, improved health care options, and reinvigorating our economy. Gonzales has quickly made a difference working tirelessly with his staff to serve his district and our communities.”

AFP Action Texas Advisor Mack Morris issued the following statement on Mayra Flores:

“We are proud to support an outstanding candidate like Mayra Flores and our activists are ready to work around the clock to see her through her special election in June and general election in November. Not only will her fresh perspective be a welcomed addition to Congress, but Flores is the embodiment of the American Dream. In office, Flores will fight to increase access to quality, affordable health care, lower taxes, and get government out of the way so Texas families and businesses can succeed.”

Rep. Tony Gonzales (TX-23) is a principled leader dedicated to tackling the greatest challenges facing the Lone Star State. In office, he will continue to fight to lower taxes and cut burdensome red tape standing in the way of economic opportunity and job creation. Additionally, Gonzales is committed to making health care more affordable for Americans and empowering families to access educational opportunities that best meet their needs. As a military veteran himself, Gonzales is also deeply passionate about veterans’ issues and will fight to ensure veterans receive the care they deserve.

Mayra Flores (TX-34) is dedicated to standing up against big government and fighting for greater opportunity so every Texan can live their American Dream. Flores believes in having a strong relationship with the community and is committed to fighting for residents of South Texas. As a Respiratory Care Practitioner, she understands how important it is to advance health care policies our families can trust and will champion more health care options.
