Jennie Lou Leeder

TX-11 (D)
Current office holder: Michael Conway (R)
Jennie is running for congress because she believes that Texas deserves representation that supports its strong values, understands its challenges, and looks to the future for growth and opportunity. She is ready to be a "Texas Strong" woman with a strong, passionate voice representing the state of Texas in Washington.
How does Jennie align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: Jennie believes that access to public education is a right guaranteed by the Constitution, and that students who desire to attain higher education should not be saddled with crippling student loans. Jennie supports the development of new energy resources for the future that will create jobs for our nation and economy.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: Jennie believes that our election laws must protect the right to vote for all citizens. She opposes gerrymandering and voter ID laws that have disenfranchised many Americans. Jennie believes that our money should be spent on educating and equipping our border patrol rather than building walls around our borders.
  • Healthy People & Communities: Jennie opposes cutting funding to Medicaid and Medicare, and opposes Republican efforts to decrease the benefits available under Medicare. Jennie sees global warming and environmental pollution as serious concerns that need to be addressed. Jennie supports common sense gun laws, including a waiting period to ensure the lawful purchase of firearms.
