“Squad”-backed Texas Democrat Jessica Cisneros on Thursday announced that she will again run against Rep. Henry Cuellar in a primary, teeing up yet another battle between the moderate wing of the Democratic Party and its most progressive members.
Cisneros fell just short in her effort to unseat Cuellar, D-Texas, last year, despite backing from “Squad” Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., as well as former presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.
The article goes on to state the following:
Cuellar emphasizes his moderate streak in Congress. He’s been unafraid to criticize the Biden administration over its immigration policy and recently appeared at a lengthy press conference with Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on the issue. Cisneros attacked the incumbent over that reputation in her campaign announcement video Thursday
Cisneros said, “What’s Henry Cuellar done in the last year since he got reelected He introduced anti-immigration bills with Republicans to further separate families. He was the only Democrat to vote in favor of corporate interests over protecting workers and strengthening unions. And he brought unusable, defective COVID-19 tests into Laredo.”
Cisneros tweeted a video announcement Thursday and said, “When they said we had no chance, we showed them just how powerful the dreams of immigrants, teachers, and rancheros are. Now, it’s time to finish what we started. I’m running for Congress because #TX28 deserves a representative who will fight for our dreams as hard as we do.”

Now, it’s time to finish what we started.

Cuellar campaign spokesman Colin Strother fired back at Cisneros saying, “South Texans have already rejected the Socialist Cisneros despite the hundreds of thousands of dollars in dark money that fueled her campaign. She has never accomplished anything and believes that she can build successful campaign built on lies and false personal attacks. Congressman Cuellar is widely respected by members on both sides of the aisle and has an unmatched record of producing results for his district.”
Justice Democrats, a PAC who has campaigned for other members of the “squad,” tweeted Thursday, “We are so proud to support @JCisnerosTX. Together, we are ready to finish what we started and bring a new generation of leadership to South Texas.”
