Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“Congratulations to Representative-elect Ray Lopez on his victory tonight in Texas House District 125. In the Texas Legislature, Ray Lopez will fight for strong neighborhood schools, higher incomes, and protect our community from Republican attacks.
“Texas families want leaders who will fight for a fair shot for all. They know that Democrats, like Ray Lopez, are their champion. Tonight is proof that nothing will stop us.
“The Texas Democratic Party is proud to have invested over $15,000 in Ray Lopez’s campaign through placing digital ads, assisting the Lopez campaign with voter targeting, placing party staff in the district, spearheading a vote-by-mail program, and sending get-out-the-vote texts. The Texas Democratic Party leveraged our voter engagement programs to make sure Ray Lopez won tonight and to build our Party infrastructure for 2020.
“We look forward to working with Ray Lopez in the Texas Legislature and electing more Democrats across our great state.”
