Gina Ortiz Jones is a first-time candidate running for Congress in what may be the most expensive House race ever in Texas. She’s 37, a Filipina American daughter of a single mother immigrant, and a former Air Force officer who would be the first out lesbian ever elected in Texas. And she actually has a shot at beating the incumbent Republican. Plus: Stephanie Schriock, the head of Emily’s List, which has given millions to pro-choice women running for Congress.
