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.
