Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez is running in the Democratic primary to take on incumbent Senator John Cornyn. She is a nationally recognized advocate and leader in the Latino community and for working people across Texas, having founded and led some of the states’ largest and most important voting and workers rights organizations. The Texas Senate race is one of the most watched Senate races this cycle, and significant down-ballot investments will certainly play a role in boosting Democratic turnout; Texas is the main battleground for the U.S. House and is less than 10 seats away from flipping its state house. Before getting the chance to take on Cornyn, Tzintzún Ramirez will face a competitive Democratic primary on March 3rd, and a likely primary run-off in late May.
Tzintzún Ramirez understands that like Americans, Israelis are struggling with how to live up to the values of an inclusive democracy while protecting their national security. And like us, she believes they can do both. She knows that a two-state solution is the path forward for both Israelis and Palestinians and is in the national interest of the United States. That’s why, as a U.S. Senator, Tzintzún Ramirez would support all efforts towards a negotiated two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians– a solution that recognizes the humanity and sovereignty of both peoples.
