Latina organization supports first Latina to run for Nevada Congressional District 2 – Xiomara RodriguezMonday, April 16th, 2012
The National Tequila Party Movement is a female-led political movement encouraging Latinos to vote for Latino-friendly politicians and is headquartered in Arizona.
We are making historic news as we get behind the first Latina political candidate to run for Congressional District 2 in Nevada.
We are excited to see emerging new Latina leadership in the Southwestern part of the Country. The Tequila Party supports all politicians who support the DREAM Act regardless of their political affiliation. If politicians support our youth, naturally we will support them.

** PRESS RELEASE **
Xiomara (Xio) Rodriguez is running for Nevada’s Congressional District 2. She is the 1st Latina to run for this position in Nevada. She was born in San Juan and graduated from the University of Puerto Rico. She also attended George Mason University and TMCC.
Xiomara is a veteran of twenty years service in the U. S. Coast Guard. She served as the first Latina to be a recruiter for the Coast Guard and also the first Latina to be a Special Agent with the Coast Guard Investigative Service.
She is running because she believes it is time to stop playing politics with the people of Nevada and this country. It is time to start working TOGETHER to move this state and this country forward. WE CANNOT continue to be content with party line actions that affect us all. We have to say “Enough is Enough”. …
Let’s also look at what has happened in the last few weeks regarding women’s health issues. Our Representatives in Congress have mounted a series of actions to restrict women’s access to much needed health care. They have also proposed very restrictive regulations and reporting procedures for doctors.
It is also time to solve our immigration problems; we cannot continue to let every state approve draconian immigration laws aimed at one group of immigrants. These measures cause chaos and divide families. It is time to stop this. It is time we, as a country, take the right steps toward comprehensive immigration reform and toward passage of the DREAM Act.
