MCALLEN, Texas – Congressional District 15 candidate Michelle Vallejo and Texas Attorney General candidate Rochelle Garza held a town hall meeting in McAllen recently titled “Our Choice.”

The Democratic Party candidates said the conversation was designed to shed light on “abortion access, protecting our children and defending democracy.”

“Reproductive rights and abortion access has quickly become one of the top issues voters are bringing up to us at the doors,” Vallejo said. “We hosted this town hall to make sure voters know where I stand on this issue and how I’ll fight for their rights once elected into Congress.”

The event was co-sponsored by Annie’s Lost and the Texas Democratic Party. Before the town hall meeting got underway, Vallejo and Garza held a news conference. Here is a video recording of the news conference:
