Doug Jones’ big win in Alabama last night is the latest example of the American people making their voices heard. It is a call for decency and a rejection to the racist, homophobic, and unconstitutional agenda people like Roy Moore and Donald Trump represent.
As primaries and midterm elections approach, the voices of the people affected by the ill-conceived and ill-advised laws being passed in Washington get louder and louder. On the campaign trail, I have learned how angry and disappointed West Texans are. I will continue to listen to the people of West Texas and support rural economic growth, higher education, and affordable health care.
The 2017 Senate race in Alabama shows West Texans that historically red states and districts like TX-19 can change and will change.
