Update: Dr. Westin came third in the March 6, 2018 primary. Unfortunately, only the top two candidates advance to a primary runoff. We at OTYCD thank Dr. Westin for running and hope he’ll run for another elected office.
Support Dr. Jason Westin, an oncologist who is running for a House seat in Texas’s 7th District.
Westin, a former Congressional intern, was moved to act by the results of the 2016 election. He is aiming to take the House seat currently represented by eight-term Republican John Culberson. Hillary Clinton narrowly won the district last November.
Westin will defend the Affordable Care Act and fight cuts to the National Institute of Health. He also understands the power and promise of science, and, you know, facts.
