Support Jana Lynne Sanchez’s run for a House of Representatives special election for an open seat in Texas’s 6th District.
We at OTYCD wrote about Sanchez in 2018, when she ran for this very seat. She won the Democratic primary but was defeated in the general by Republican Ronald Wright. She got 45.4 percent of the vote to his tally of 53.1.
Wright won re-election in 2020 but died of COVID-19 on February 7, 2021. He’s the first sitting member of Congress to succumb to the disease; Luke Letlow, a GOP Congressman-elect from Louisiana, died of COVID-19 before he could be sworn in.
Wright’s death prompted a special election to fill his seat, and Sanchez has stepped forward to run. She is one of ten Democrats and 11 Republicans vying for the post alongside a Libertarian and an Independent.
Ballotpedia does not reflect a date for a primary for this special election, but the special election itself takes place on May 1, 2021.
The name recognition Sanchez built during the 2018 campaign should serve her well here. In February, she told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that she had already raised $100,000.
