Support women & Latinas to run for office across the ballot

It is important for women in office like me to support strong Latina candidates up and down the ballot, but it's also imperative that we encourage more women like us to get involved at all levels -- from being campaign volunteers to running for school boards and city councils, we have to create a pipeline of leadership that will build a strong bench.

Certify 2020 Presidential election as fully & fairly counted.

Escobar voted NAY blocking certification of the Electoral vote

Explanation of 1/6/21 Electoral Certification, by Emily Brooks, Washington Examiner:Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Paul Gosar led an objection to counting Electoral College votes from the state of Arizona, the first formal objection to state results in a series of moves that will delay the certification of Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election over President Trump. Cruz is advocating for an `emergency 10-day audit` of election returns in disputed states. The usually ceremonial joint session of Congress that convenes to count and accept Electoral College votes will be put on hold as the House and Senate separately debate the objection.
