Tim Westley to Run Again For U.S. Congress
Westley (R), who ran for Congress in 2016 to represent U.S.
Congressional District 15 (TX), has decided to run again. Although he
was new to politics and many did not know him at the time, he quickly and strategically established himself.
He led in the Primary Race against former Rio Grande City Mayor Rubén O. Villarreal
and Edinburg CISD Board Trustee Xavier Salinas. Eventually, Westley (R) would
face Villarreal (R) in a closely contested Runoff election and win. He would go
on to face Vicente Gonzalez (D), Vanessa Tijerina (G), and Ross Lynn Leone
(L) in the General Election of which he fell short to Gonzalez (D).
Nevertheless, Westley (R) is more than hopeful as he only spent 2% of what Gonzales (D) did in the General election yet was able to capture just over 37% of the votes. With better name recognition, a stronger platform, and more donors, Westley (R) believes that he will be better positioned to build on the momentum from 2016 and end the Democratic winning streak of over 112+ straight years.
He believes that it is time for a new type of leader to bring in a new era of change from a conservative perspective. Westley (R) is looking forward to getting back on the campaign trail and meeting with constituents throughout the district to hear their concerns. He is also looking forward to meeting with community leaders to engage their concerns as well. Westley (R) is excited about this journey and is very optimistic that he can and will be able to bring conservative leadership to the district and be a strong voice in Washington D.C.
