EDINBURG, TX – On Tuesday, Senator Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa was re-elected to the Texas Senate. Senate District 20 includes Brooks, Hidalgo (part), Jim Wells, and Nueces Counties (part).
Senator Hinojosa released the following statement:
I am grateful to the constituents of Senate District 20 for re-electing me to continue serving you as your State Senator! I appreciate the voters of Brooks, Jim Wells, Nueces, and Hidalgo Counties. I am honored that you continue to place your trust in me to keep working and fighting for the needs of our South Texas families.
We could not have succeeded tonight without the efforts of so many supporters from the Coastal Bend to the Rio Grande Valley, as well as statewide. I want to thank my family for their unending support, and each member of my campaign staff and volunteers for their strong commitment, energy, and countless hours of hard work.
I will continue to strive for common sense solutions that address problems. As we enter another year facing Covid, we must deal with the effects it has had on our economy, our workforce, and our schools. There is still much more work to be done on critical issues like border security, property taxes, affordable health care, education, transportation, expanding broadband access, flood mitigation, power grid reliability, and human trafficking. I look forward to working on these issues and more when the Texas Legislature convenes in January. I am grateful to have won another term and I remain committed to you and our families.
