Texas AFL-CIO Congratulates M.J. Hegar on Tough Fight

Texas AFL-CIO President Rick Levy and Secretary-Treasurer Montserrat Garibay issued this statement in the wake of the U.S. Senate race result:

“M.J. Hegar gave Sen. John Cornyn his closest statewide contest by standing and fighting for a fair shot for working families to get ahead. In doing so, M.J. helped turn Texas into a true battleground. We thank her for helping end Texas’s reputation as a ‘non-voting’ state. The mountain is high, but M.J. came historically close to the summit.”
