Sema’s Priorities

A candidate is no better than the policies they support. Sema has a well-established record of fighting for the poor and working people of Texas and against the influence of moneyed interests, whether they be billionaires, corporations, or the out-of-touch leadership of both D.C. parties. Sema’s political positions are not based on expedience or focus groups or polling. She will always fight for justice and what she believes to be right.
