Election Day:








Wendell Champion

For Texas’ 18th Congressional District

His personal journey from “Welfare to West Point” combined with his proven leadership and professional experience as a former army officer, lawyer, corporate manager, youth minister, as well as a community volunteer and community organizer demonstrate a lifetime commitment as a public servant.

The Leadership Houston Needs

Living in the 18th Congressional District for two decades I do not see people being lifted up. I want to see people being encouraged to prosper. We can no longer accept “That is just the way it is.” We all want the same things for those we love. We want to provide for our families in a safe and secure home. I look forward to showing the city of Houston I am a worthy representative. – Wendell Champion

A tireless advocate and a “CHAMPION” for Veterans’ Rights, he serves in Law Enforcement, and as the Military Liaison for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, where he provides support to military veterans who work in law enforcement and to their families.


Champion has been a licensed attorney in Texas for over 20 years, having received his law degree from South Texas College of Law. However, much of his professional development has been in the corporate and private business sector. His legal and professional experiences include General Civil and Criminal Law, Litigation, Business Law, Asset Protection & Estate Planning, Corporate Sales & Corporate Management with Fortune 50 Companies, Oil & Gas, Medical, Mortgage Banking. He holds Texas professional licenses in Law, Insurance, Real Estate, and Law Enforcement.

He is also a former club president of Rotary International, a former board member at Weekley Family YMCA, and a former board member of Rainbow Housing Assistance Corporation.


Wendell Champion is a committed community organizer dedicated to improving the lives of families, seniors and children in need of assistance. He is also blessed to serve his community through Youth Ministry.

Champion’s Mission

I am running for Congress to serve you. I went from Welfare to West Point. One of the things I learned in my life as a soldier is that when you’re on a battlefield, you don’t leave people behind. You go in and you pull them out!

For too long, too many of our elected officials have prospered themselves by convincing our neighbors they cannot succeed because they were born poor. I know that’s simply not true. I know it because I’ve lived it. I have experienced a front row seat to the American Dream.

I’m prepared to run on a message of hope, a message of truth. I know that if you want to lead, you have to serve. I know that real leaders put others’ needs before themselves. A real leader serves the food and eats last.

Support me as I endeavor to serve the families of Congressional District 18! Together, we can improve the lives of the community. Together, we can alter the destiny of a great American city. Together, we all advance. Together, we can help more of our neighbors be the Champions they were meant to be! Together We Win!
