Houston, TX—Today, Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher (TX-07) announced she has earned the endorsement of Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis for her 2022 re-election.
“Congresswoman Fletcher is a proven champion for the hardworking people of the greater Houston area and we are fortunate to have her fighting for us in Washington,” said Commissioner Rodney Ellis. “I am proud to again endorse her for re-election and know that our diverse community will continue to benefit from her leadership in Congress.”
“I am proud to receive the support of Commissioner Ellis, whose decades of service to the greater Houston area have been instrumental to the growth of our region,” said Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher. “We have worked on issues of great importance from flood mitigation to multi-modal transportation and more, and I look forward to continuing our work together.”
In addition to Commissioner Rodney Ellis, Congresswoman Fletcher has earned the endorsements of Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, Fort Bend County Judge KP George, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo, EMILY’s List, Bold PAC, the Latino Labor Leadership Council, and Run Sister Run PAC for her 2022 re-election campaign, demonstrating the breadth of support for Congresswoman Fletcher and the continued diversity of the coalition she has built since her first campaign in 2018.
A second-term Member of Congress, Fletcher was first elected to represent Texas’ Seventh Congressional District in 2018 after a decisive victory over nine-term Republican incumbent John Culberson, becoming the first Democrat in more than 50 years and the first woman ever to represent TX-07. In 2020, she was re-elected over one of the National Republican Congressional Committee’s best-funded challengers. In 2022, she has already been endorsed by EMILY’s List, Bold PAC, the Latino Labor Leadership Council of Southeast Texas, and Run Sister Run PAC. As of September 30, 2021, she had raised more than $2 million toward her re-election and has nearly $1.8 million cash on hand for her campaign.
