Candidate Spotlight: Gabby Salinas For HD 97

Gabby Salinas is running for House District 97 in Shelby County. Gabby was previously endorsed by WTF when she ran for State Senate in 2018, coming up short by a heartbreaking one point. Gabby is running in what is widely considered one of Tennessee’s most flippable districts. With your help right now, we can turn Gabby’s heartbreaking loss into a success story.

Gabby is a scientist, a three-time cancer survivor, and a healthcare advocate. She immigrated to the U.S. to receive life-saving treatment as a child at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the same hospital where she is a former research technologist in the department of Chemical Biology and Therapeutics.

The Republican attacks against her have started and they are xenophobic. Let’s help Gabby defend against the lies. Please chip-in whatever you can.

As Gabby says, “We are a country of immigrants. I became a citizen thanks to the help of a Republican legislator, Senator Fred Thompson, a true statesman. I know firsthand the impact legislation has on everyday people – my family has lived it.”

Gabby will be a leader when it comes to public education, healthcare and human rights.

With your help, we will flip this swing district from red to blue, but we can’t do it alone. Please chip-in if you can!
