Chevalier for Congress


A 19-year military veteran injured in a Baghdad car bombing is entering the hotly contested political race to replace retiring District 22 Congressman Pete Olsen.
However, that may not be the biggest headline of this major political announcement.
Keli Chevalier is a woman, a graduate of Yates High School in the Third Ward, and she is a conservative.
District 22 is now 75% minority, and Chevalier’s entrance into the race as an African-American woman now gives Republicans a real chance to keep the seat red.
“If Republicans don’t have candidates that look like me, the party is not going to get heard, and if the Republican party doesn’t get heard it cannot win, and if Republicans don’t win America loses,” says Chevalier.
“When working minority families really think about their values they will realize the Republican party shares their desire for prosperity for their families” says Chevalier, “They don’t want handouts they want ladders for the success of their families.”
Chevalier’s spine was fractured after a car bomb exploded during her third tour of duty. After a difficult transition back to civilian life as an injured female veteran, Chevalier founded and runs the W.A.V.E Campaign, a program designed to aid female veterans.
“I am battle tested in many ways, and I am more than willing to stand up and take that oath again,” says Chevalier.
Chevalier has already set her sights on convincing folks in Brazoria, Fort Bend and Harris counties that angry Democratic politics of The Squad (Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Rep. Ilhan Omar, and Rep. Rashida Tlaib) will destroy the America she fought for.
“They are angry and divisive and what they want to do this country will bankrupt America,” says Chevalier.
The mother of three boys will make her campaign announcement Tuesday morning, September 3, 2019, at 10 AM outside the American Legion Hall near Ellington Field located at 11702 Galveston Road, Houston, Texas 77034.
