Washington, D.C. – Today, LCV Victory Fund announced our support for Jessica Cisneros, candidates for TX-28th with a six figure ad buy. The Spanish-language radio ad focuses on high costs for working families and Cisneros’ willingness to fight for local communities.
Our new ad in TX-28: “Respalda”
This is LCV VF’s first investment of 2022 alongside three other independent expenditures supporting pro-environment, non-incumbent, women of color running for U.S. House seats in competitive primaries: Donna Edwards, candidate for MD-04; and Summer Lee, candidate for PA-12, and Andrea Salinas, candidate for OR-06. LCV VF has rarely run campaigns in federal primaries, happening only a handful of times. The ad will run on Spanish-language radio stations in San Antonio and additional streaming platforms in the district through the primary runoff election on May 24.
“We’re getting involved in these primaries because electing more pro-environment women of color is good for people and the planet – we desperately need Congress to be more representative of the electorate,” said Megan Jacobs, LCV Victory Fund Senior National Campaigns Director. “With increasing climate-fueled extreme weather events and rising energy prices, it is more important than ever to send strong climate leaders to Congress who support investing in clean energy, advancing environmental justice, and lowering costs for families.”
Cisneros, Edwards, Lee, and Salinas were all endorsed by LCV Action Fund earlier this year.

Todo está caro.
Necesitamos a una líder que entienda
nuestros problemas y que se enfrente a las
grandes corporaciones y los intereses
especiales que están aumentando los costos.
Jessica Cisneros respalda a la comunidad.
Luchará para expandir Medicare para incluir
cobertura dental, de visión y de la audición.
Y para reducir los precios de las medicinas
También combatirá el cambio climático que
pone en peligro nuestra salud.
Entonces, votemos por la demócrata Jessica
Ella nos respeta y nos representará con
dignidad en Washington.
El día de elecciones es el martes, 24 de
mayo. ¡Haga un plan para votar por Jessica
