On Thursday, we were in Victoria meeting with community leaders. That evening, we attended a fundraiser for Attorney General Greg Abbott, where I had the chance to see SREC member Ben Zeller and his wife Jamie. I’m honored that Ben is one of the 76 current or former SREC members who has endorsed our campaign.
On Friday night in Alvarado, Angela and I attended Sheriff Bob Alford’s 17th annual Cowboys for Kids gala benefiting the Children’s Advocacy Center of Johnson County. Well over 1,000 people turned out to help raise money and awareness for this great cause, including my friends Senator Brian Birdwell and State Representative Rob Orr.
Continuing our weekend campaigning, yesterday morning we started in Dallas County with theGarland First Lady Republican Women’s Club, where I was honored to be the featured speaker. I am so pleased to have the support of Adriana Liberto, the Club’s President, and its founders.
Then we trekked to the Eastside Plaza in Richardson to honor Igor Finkler, a Kazakhstan immigrant who came to America with only $50 in his pocket who worked his way from overnight 7-11 delivery truck driver to an owner of his own store. Throughout his journey, he became a U.S. citizen, appeared on the show “Undercover Boss”, and is proof the American Dream is alive and well in Texas!
Last night in Austin, I joined Tim Lambert at the Texas Home School Coalition gala outside of Austin. It was an honor to be recognized for legislative leadership on issues important to homeschoolers such as the UIL bill I carried out of the Senate. This is a tremendous group of patriots and I’m proud to have their endorsement. I also had the chance to visit with many home school parents and families.
Then, this morning, I was able to worship in central Texas at Great Hills Baptist Church in Austin. I’m thankful for the hospitality of the Forshee family in Round Rock.
We are in the homestretch of the campaign and your support is now more important than ever. I hope you’ll consider “doubling down” on your commitment to Team Paxton. Whether you can contribute $25 or $100, share our posts on Facebook, or talk to your friends and neighbors about the May 27th election, we need you. The grassroots will win this election, just like it did for Senator Ted Cruz in 2012!
Let’s finish this!
