HOUSTON -- Republican Linda Vega announced Tuesday she will run for the U.S. Senate seat currently occupied by John Cornyn.
Vega is an attorney and immigration reform activist.
"In Texas we believe power comes from the individual, from hard work and the private sector," she said Tuesday. "America needs an immigration system that stops penalizing businesses."

Vega is a Texan by birth and a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin. She received her degree in law from the George Washington Law School in D.C.
