Sheila Jackson Lee Announces Run for 18th Congressional District After Mayoral Loss
Was Sheila Jackson Lee a decoy for Whitmire all along? This would explain the Houston Chronicles endorsement of Whitmire. The Chronicle tends to always throw a curveball endorsement in.
Jackson Lee announced her decision to run in a statement released Monday, saying she is “compelled by the numerous opportunities still ahead to enhance the lives of my constituents.”
“I thought about the many more gifts I have to give to my constituents of the 18th Congressional District,” she said in a post on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter. “Those gifts involve more hard work and my ability to get the job done! Together, let’s build on the progress we’ve achieved and work towards an even brighter future for all.”
Following Lee’s announcement, DNC sock puppet Isiah Mitchell released a statement that he’d be suspending his campaign (after raising approximately $300k) to endorse Sheila Jackson Lee.
