The Houston Chronicle declared that my political and energy experience is “tailor-made to represent the district.” (Feb. 26, 2014)
28 years ago I worked on Capitol Hill when Jim Wright was the Speaker and Democrats and Republicans worked together – not always agreeing – but working together to pass legislation and move our Nation forward. Today, after 220 years, that Congress is gone. Today, Congress is stuck in gridlock due to ideological Tea Party members like John Culberson. If you want to get Congress working again, then elect me to represent the 7th District of Texas.
“Houston Can Do Better” with a congressman who will put Houstonians before party politics.
In the 7th district … it’s time for a change. We endorse Democratic challenger James Cargas. (Oct. 16, 2014)
Go for the candidate who talks about Houston issues and not just in cable news quotes. That candidate is James Cargas. (Feb. 25, 2014)
Unlike Culberson, he’ll be a constructive force in Congress, which would be a welcome change. (Oct. 16, 2014)
His experience as a congressional press secretary provides important background on navigating Congress. In fact, it is that experience that drove Cargas to run, hoping to provide a voice of common-sense collegiality to a system now seemingly dominated by tea party extremism. (July 19, 2012)
Experience tailor-made to represent the district. (Feb. 25, 2014)
“Very early on, way before he came to Washington, I worked with James and his family in my district in Michigan as a liaison to the Greek community,His family was very well respected. James was a thoughtful, persistent, fine young man, including the time he was part of my communications group. If elected, I believe he will do a fine job for his constituents.”
“He is the candidate who can win in November against the Republicans and their Tea Party allies and stand up for women in these hostile times”
“Recently federal research funding has suffered deep cuts, Cargas will work to restore federal research funding”
“The district leans Republican, but not so much that a moderate Democrat like Cargas can’t win”
“James has the depth and breadth of experience to serve in the United States Congress”
” He does not give up “
“A much needed voice of reason in Washington DC”
“James is honest and hard-working with a strong commitment to public service”
