In 2014, Lisa set out to bring a new face, message, and agenda to the Republican Party. She is the first African-American woman to run for Governor of Texas. With a focus on representing the underrepresented, the campaign addressed issues including: women’s rights, dignity for immigrants, education reform, entrepreneurial access and opportunity for all Texans including the 18% of working Texans living in poverty. Though a first time candidate, Lisa gained national attention and raised consciousness across Texas and the country and received endorsements from BAMPAC, Central Texas Coalition for Life, and Texans United for Reform and Freedom. Defying the status quo, Lisa finished second against a highly funded establishment incumbent. Lisa is a social and political strategist advocating for the underrepresented in work, life, and community.
