Ina Minjarez wins
Yesterday Annie's List Executive Director Patsy Woods Martin predicted that its candidate would win the House District 124 race at Annie's List's luncheon in Houston, Texas. She was correct. Ina Minjarez won her race. Patsy Woods Martin released the following email.
I have some exciting news: Annie’s List-endorsed candidate Ina Minjarez just won her race in HD 124! She soundly defeated her opponent with 55% percent of the vote. Will you take a moment to join us in congratulating Representative-Elect Ina Minjarez on her incredible victory?
Ina’s victory is an important one: this district on San Antonio’s far west side has not been held by a woman in almost 20 years. And, once she is inaugurated, Representative-Elect Minjarez will join only eleven Annie’s List-endorsed women in the Texas House.
Annie’s List was proud to support Ina Minjarez in her strong campaign - and we couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you so much for your partnership which has allowed us to contribute critical resources to help pro-choice, progressive women, like Ina, to the Legislature.
Here at Annie’s List, we are proud to have kicked off our 2016 election cycle with this important win. Because of supporters like you, since our inception in 2003, Annie’s List contributed over $4 million dollars, trained thousands of women and helped elect - now 23! - progressive women to office. THANK YOU!
We hope you’ll join us in welcoming Representative-Elect Ina Minjarez to the State House and we look forward to partnering with you throughout the 2016 cycle!
Thank you again for your support!
Patsy Woods Martin
