As many of us are at Republican county conventions today, I’m excited to report more momentum every day on the campaign trail.
When the grassroots delivered us a stunning first-place finish in the Primary, I promised that we would build on that momentum and finish what we started. And we’re doing just that.
Just yesterday we announced the official endorsement of former Harris County Tax Assessor, longtime conservative activist, and current State Senator-Elect Paul Bettencourt. The day before that we received very exciting news that Freedomworks, a nationwide grassroots organization that played an important role in electing Senator Ted Cruz, endorsed our campaign.
Tuesday, former Texas Secretary of State and former Texas GOP Chairman George Strake also joined Team Paxton! George is a true titan of the Republican Party who helped lead Texas from a Blue to a Red State…and to keep it there.
It doesn’t stop there! The organization representing 5000 Houston police officers, the state’s largest such group, has also endorsed our campaign. These men and women put their lives on the line to keep our cities safe and I’m proud to have their support.
Continuing the string of victories during the primary, we have also won the first straw poll of the runoff! And, in case you missed the last email update, State Senator Donna Campbell has endorsed our campaign and will be working to deliver votes from an vital area of central Texas. Last week, Dr. Steve Hotze, President of Conservative Republicans of Texas, announced his support, too.
Regional elected officials, grassroots organizations, former statewide elected officials, law enforcement groups, and more straw poll victories…TEAM PAXTON IS MOVING FORWARD.
Do you want to see more momentum like this? There is a reason we call it “Team” Paxton…each person, each supporter is vital in our efforts ensure a conservative victory in the runoff.
