Gutierrez Travels to South Texas, Uvalde, and Gulf Coast
For Immediate Release: January 22, 2024
TEXAS – Roland Gutierrez, candidate for the U.S. Senate and Uvalde State Senator, returned to CORPUS CHRISTI and the RIO GRANDE VALLEY before a stop in UVALDE to meet with families from the Robb Elementary massacre, before continuing to events in HOUSTON, MISSOURI CITY, MONT BELVIEU, PEARLAND, and SUGAR LAND over the weekend.
Roland Gutierrez visited CORPUS CHRISTI to meet with International Association of Machinists Local 2916 union members, before driving to the RIO GRANDE VALLEY to meet with supporters.
Gutierrez stopped in UVALDE Thursday to support victims’ families from the Robb Elementary shooting as the Department of Justice delivered a historic report on the law enforcement failures from the May 2022 massacre.
“What happened here in Uvalde is about guns and the neglect of Rural Texas. We are broken as a state, and the systems meant to protect us are failing because Republicans like Ted Cruz do not care,” said Roland Gutierrez, contender for the United States Senate.
“Rather than providing solutions to our problems, we have politicians who are making them worse. Texas needs real solutions on immigration, the economy, and gun violence, instead of the chaos that Republicans have provided us.”
In HOUSTON, Roland Gutierrez met with supporters and attended a rural candidate debate hosted by The 134 PAC, before a series of candidate meetings in PEARLAND and MONT BELVIEU, capping his trip meeting with the Texas State Democratic Executive Committee and Young Democrats in MISSOURI CITY.
Gutierrez will visit CORPUS CHRISTI, HARLINGEN, HOUSTON, DALLAS, ARLINGTON, FORT WORTH, and MCKINNEY, before landing in AUSTIN for the TEXAS AFL-CIO DEBATE.
