As announced earlier this year, we are breaking a record for LGBT candidates in the election.
Ortiz-Jones, 37, won the Democratic primary runoff. She will face Will Bert, an African-American Republican who supports Trump's anti-immigration agenda.
Ortiz-Jones appears in a neighborhood from San Antonio in south-central Texas to El Paso on the border between Mexico and the United States.
See you in a few months to see if Gina Ortiz-Jones has become the first lesbian Filipina veteran to be part of the Congress.
