HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Thierry Tchenko(TEE-AIRY CHEN-KOH) today launched his campaign for the U.S. Senate with an announcement video on his social media platforms at: @TchenkoForTexas.

Texas has major issues such as: an economy where 40% of people make an unlivable wage, a broken immigration system, the highest uninsured rate in the country, and a public education system that Republicans want to take money out of.
