Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee announced her candidacy for a 16th term in the House after losing the run-off election for Houston mayor.

Her decision led Gen Z candidate Isaiah Martin to suspend his campaign and endorse her.

During the mayoral campaign, Jackson Lee faced controversy over leaked audio and a campaign advertisement showing the wrong date for the run-off contest. (Trending: Tucker Carlson Reveals ‘Secret’ Project He’s Been Working On For Months)

“I thought about the many more gifts I have to give to my constituents of the 18th Congressional District,” wrote the defeated Rep. Jackson Lee.

“Those gifts involve more hard work and my ability to get the job done! Together, let’s build on the progress we’ve achieved and work towards an even brighter future for all,” she added.

“Our focus must be on flipping the House and electing more good democrats — not primarying great members,” wrote fellow Democrat, Isiah Martin.

“I couldn’t be more thankful for all of your support; this isn’t the end of our story; trust me,” he added.

Texas state senator John Whitmire won the run-off by a wide margin and emphasized respect and anti-bullying in his victory speech.

“People want to go to work for me because we respect people. We don’t bully people,” said John Whitmire.

“My family taught me to treat people the way you want to be treated, and that works wherever you are, regardless of what community you’re visiting with,” he continued.

Adding, “Treat these individuals like you want to be treated.”
