Latino Victory Project Congratulates U.S. Rep. Veronica Escobar on New Democratic House Leadership Role

Washington, D.C. Today, U.S. Rep. Veronica Escobar, TX-16, was elected to a key seat in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Democratic leadership team. Latino Victory Project Executive Director Mayra Macías issued the following statement in response:

“Congresswoman Escobar’s election to the Democratic House leadership is monumental for Latino representation in Congress. Since day one, Escobar established herself as a steadfast, hard-working leader in the freshman class, whose penchant for consensus-building did not go unnoticed. She’s a results-oriented public servant who will undoubtedly continue rising through the ranks in Congress. Latino Victory is proud to have helped recruit Escobar to run for Congress as part of our Year of the Latina program, and we are beyond excited to congratulate her and her dedicated team.”
