Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, running for mayor of Houston, aired an ad with the wrong date for the runoff election.
The runoff is on Dec. 9, but the ad tells voters to go to the polls “on or before Dec. 7.”
The campaign video also highlights Lee’s career and her plans for Houston. (Trending: Bombshell Email Uncovered Between Joe Biden And Hunter)

“Houston, I’ve spent my entire career fighting for you, from fighting to keep our kids safe from guns when I was on the city council to my days in Congress, fighting to protect women’s reproductive freedom and for funding for our police, schools, and small businesses,” said Jackson.
“Now, I’m running to be your mayor,” she continued.
Adding, “Because if we’re going to bring down crime, fix our streets, and bring good-paying jobs here, then Houston needs a champion who’s ready to fight for what’s right. And I am.”
Lee claims that she “expects excellence at all times” and “everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect”.
This comes after a previous controversy involving leaked audio of Lee cursing at a staff member.
In response to the controversy, Lee said, “I recognize that in my zeal to do everything possible to deliver for my constituents I have in the past fallen short of my own standards and there is no excuse for that.”
