DCCC Chairman Steve Israel’s Statement on the Republican Runoff in TX-23

DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement regarding the Republican runoff in Texas’s 23rd  Congressional District.  

“Republicans’ Tea Party Civil War is on full display in Texas’ 23rd Congressional District, with voters sending Quico Canseco and Will Hurd to a runoff, where they will drive each other even further out of the mainstream. Pete Gallego has a proven record as a results-oriented, problem-solving champion for Texas’s middle class, and Republicans made his reelection even more likely by prolonging their intra-party battle among two unelectable candidates.”
