Press Release: Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher Releases Fourth TV Ad of 2020: ‘Right for Houston’

Houston, TX—Today, Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher (TX-07) launched her fourth television ad of the 2020 general election cycle, ‘Right for Houston.’ The ad highlights Fletcher’s success working with both parties in Congress to pass legislation to help Houstonians: speeding up Harvey recovery funding, leading a bipartisan effort to authorize expansion of the Houston Ship Channel, passing a bill to lower the price of prescription drugs, and working to keep businesses open through the COVID-19 pandemic. The ad will run on Houston broadcast and cable stations starting today.

“By working with diverse coalitions of Republicans and Democrats, I have delivered on my promise to represent Houston as a partner and an advocate in Congress,” Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher said. “I have been able to deliver results by remaining true to the values of our community: getting legislation to improve disaster recovery and speed up delivery of Harvey funding signed into law; passing legislation to lower the price of prescription drugs; authorizing a billion-dollar project to widen and deepen the Houston Ship Channel, bringing much-needed capacity and economic growth to our region; and responding to the many challenges to our lives and livelihoods brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Fletcher added: “I am so proud to represent our diverse community, and I am optimistic about many more things we can accomplish by working together now and in the future.”

This is the fourth television ad Fletcher has run for the 2020 general election cycle. Her first ad, ‘Your Part,’ highlights Fletcher’s record of fighting for Houstonians as the community works together to confront the COVID-19 pandemic. Her second ad, ‘Test,’ highlights Fletcher’s record on protecting and strengthening access to health care during her time in Congress and through the COVID-19 pandemic. Her third ad ‘One,’ shines a spotlight on her Republican opponent Wesley Hunt’s stated intention to “fully repeal” the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which would repeal the only existing protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
