Rep. Henry Cuellar, a moderate Democrat from Texas, recently stated that he would vote to keep Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House before turning his attention to his district at the start of the new congressional session.
Cuellar assured reporters at the opening of his brand-new campaign office in Texas that he will vote to keep Pelosi as speaker of the House. According to Cuellar, “My first vote is for Nancy Pelosi no ifs, no buts, but then after that, it’s my district,” a Texas Tribune newsletter on Wednesday reported.
Cuellar was contacted by Fox News Digital to provide more context surrounding his statement that, if re-elected this fall, his district will lose out to Pelosi, but the Democrat chose not to react.
Cuellar has a reputation for voting moderately in Congress. She was the only Democrat in the House to oppose the Women’s Health Protection Act, a significant piece of pro-abortion legislation, and she recently criticized Vice President Kamala Harris, the president’s border czar, for her assertion that the border was secure.
Evidently, according to Rep. Henry Cuellar, the border is not secure.
“The same applies to my message. We must do more to deter migrants from entering the United States because the border is not secure “Cuellar spoke to Fox News Online.
In order to defend his position in Texas’ 28th Congressional District from Republican nominee Cassy Garcia, who believes Cuellar is all talk and no action, Cuellar is running in a tight campaign for the House this cycle.
DEMOCRAT CUELLAR SAYS THE RIGHT THINGS, BUT VOTES AGAINST BORDER SECURITY, SAYS TEXAS GOP HOUSE CANDIDATE GARCIA
“Since I was in kindergarten, Henry has served in public office. It’s been a long time. He is no longer involved in our neighborhood. Garcia said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” that Pelosi’s San Francisco values don’t coincide with those of South Texas, which is shown by the fact that he votes with her 95% of the time “late September.
The National Border Patrol Council is sponsoring me in this campaign rather than him, she claimed, since he has voted against building infrastructure for the southern border.
Garcia claimed that she has discussed Cuellar’s role at the border with district voters. They claim that he has been there for too long and that, despite saying all the right things, he has done little to protect our southern border.
