San Antonio, TX — Today BOLD PAC, the political arm of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus chaired by fellow veteran Congressman Ruben Gallego, endorsed Marine veteran John Lira in his campaign to represent Texas’s 23rd Congressional District.
“I am very proud to earn BOLD PAC’s endorsement,” said John Lira. “My team and I are honored to have BOLD PAC’s trust and public support as we work to flip this district blue and give families in Texas’s 23rd Congressional District the representation they deserve. As a Marine veteran and the son of a Mexican-American family growing up in San Antonio, I learned the value of hard work and the importance of serving our community. I’ll honor those values every day on the campaign trail, and with the help of Texans and BOLD PAC, I’ll bring those values to Congress next November.”
