Gina Ortiz Jones

TX-23 (D)
Current office holder: Will Hurd (R)
Gina is running for Congress to bring her extensive experience, unique perspective, and the core values from growing up in San Antonio to work in Washington. Gina served in the U.S. Air Force as an intelligence officer, where she deployed to Iraq. She also served as the Senior Advisor for Trade Enforcement, a position created by President Obama by Executive Order in 2012. She later served as a Director for Investment at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative where she led the review of foreign investments to ensure they did not pose national security risks.
How does Gina align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: Creating good paying jobs in Texas will be Gina's number one priority. She wants to ensure Texas is at the forefront of job creation and innovation and ensure there is a strong middle class.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: In the Air Force, Gina served under the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy and saw firsthand the effects of discrimination. In Congress, Gina will be a champion of equal rights for all.
  • Healthy People & Communities: Given the high number of people without insurance in Texas, Gina is focused on affordable, accessible health care services. Gina is also focused on reducing the financial impact of medical emergencies and reducing maternal morality.
