Hollywood Hegar Handpicked by Chuck Schumer to Run for Senate in Texas

AUSTIN, TX – Today, failed candidate for Texas’ 31st Congressional District MJ Hegar announced she intends to run for Senate in Texas. She was handpicked by New York Democrat Chuck Schumer to be the candidate in this race. Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey commented:

“The left continues to push further away from reality as they present voters a candidate handpicked by Democrat puppet master Chuck Schumer: California-supported Hollywood Hegar. She has made it clear she supports government-run healthcare, high taxes, late-term abortions, and even believes the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is bad for our nation. No wonder Chuck Schumer chose her – she is a copy of Nancy Pelosi who believes more money in the pockets of Americans is a bad thing.”

During the third quarter of her race for the 31st Congressional District in Texas, Hollywood Hegar raised $1.9 million – and only 17.8% of the itemized donations came from Texas. The vast majority came from California, New York, and Massachusetts.

Chairman James Dickey concluded:

“What Texans want is a leader who will represent Texas values, not copies of leftist-elite values. It’s hard to put Texans first when your support is coming from everywhere else. Her support from Schumer only solidifies just how out of touch with Texans she is because one thing is certain – he does NOT understand Texas values. Sadly, neither does his chosen candidate. We look forward to Texas voters learning just who Hollywood Hegar is and rejecting her far-left policies.”
