During early voting, our opponent released a poll showing himself with an almost 2-1 lead. But, despite being outspent more than 2-1, we led the field with 44%, coming within just 6 points of winning outright. In fact, Team Paxton actually won 19 of the top 20 counties in Texas – including Dallas County, our opponent’s home!
Despite the amazing results (because of grassroots supporters like you), we have not rested or assumed victory. Lots has happened already since the primary ended and the runoff began last week and I’m excited to share with you two new developments!
First, Texas State Senator Donna Campbell, who represents a district which includes several key Republican counties in Central Texas, has also joined our team!
“I know Ken Paxton as a man of integrity and the highest character. He is an exceptional conservative leader in Texas and I am proud to endorse him for Attorney General. His performance in the March 4th election proves that grassroots conservatives believe Ken Paxton is the best candidate to defend our values and our state against the egregious acts of President Obama.”
Congratulations to Donna on her own strong primary victory, and I’m honored that she has endorsed my candidacy. Her endorsement and active support will help us build on our winning margins in key SD 25 counties and help us finish the job.
And second, Dr. Steve Hotze, President of Conservative Republicans of Texas has joined Team Paxton.
“Time and time again Senator Ken Paxton has demonstrated the courage of his conservative convictions, fighting for pro-life, biblical marriage, pro-family, pro-gun, anti-tax and free enterprise legislation. Ken has challenged the Republican establishment when he felt that their positions were wrong. Ken Paxton will make an outstanding Attorney General of Texas and further advance our current Attorney General Abbott’s efforts ofchallenging the federal government’s infringements upon our state’s rights.”
I appreciate Dr. Hotze’s endorsement, particularly because we are likely to be outspent once again in the runoff and his advocacy of my candidacy will resonate with grassroots voters.
Please send your support today and let’s finish what we started.
