EMILY's List goes on air against Cuellar in Texas primary battle

Henry Cuellar

The super PAC arm of EMILY’s List, Democrats’ flagship pro-abortion rights group, is going on the air in Texas targeting Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar ahead of his primary runoff this month.

Women Vote! booked $526,000 in TV ads Friday to support Jessica Cisneros, an immigration attorney challenging the longtime incumbent, according to AdImpact, a firm that tracks media buys.

Cuellar, the only House Democrat who opposes abortion rights, inched into first place in the March primary by less than 1,000 votes, but he did not clear the 50 percent threshold needed to avoid the one-on-one May 24 runoff against Cisneros.

And the release this month of a draft decision that revealed the Supreme Court had voted to overturn Roe upended the race again, placing an uncomfortable spotlight on Cuellar.
