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. 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.
