Shejack Tells Houston Voters to go to the Polls- On the Wrong Day
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, released a campaign advertisement urging supporters to vote, except the advertisement had the wrong day.
Jackson Lee is running in the runoff election to replace Mayor Sylvester Turner (D), which takes place on Saturday, Dec. 9. Her advertisement, which has been aired on Houston’s television markets, tells voters to head to the polls “on or before December 7th.”
In the advertisement, Jackson Lee shows off her record serving in Congress and city council.
“Houston, I’ve spent my entire career fighting for you from fighting to keep our kids safe from guns when I was on city council, to my days in Congress fighting to protect women’s reproductive freedom and for funding for our police, schools and small businesses,” she said in the video.
“Now, I’m running to be your mayor, because if we’re going to bring down crime, fix our streets and bring good paying jobs here, then Houston needs a champion who’s ready to fight for what’s right. And I am,” she said in the video, which concluded with a graphic with the incorrect date of the election.
