Texas Republican Assembly Board Endorses Ken Paxton for Texas Speaker

See also

Today, the Texas Republican Assembly Board of Directors announced their endorsement of State Representative Ken Paxton (R-McKinney) for Speaker in the Texas House of Representatives.

The race for speaker in the Texas House is the first fight for conservative principles that lawmakers will face in January. In November, we saw an unprecedented mandate given to the Republican Party, and we believe that the interests of all Texans will be best served with a conservative leader in the House of Representatives. With that in mind, the TXRA Board of Directors opted to endorse in this race.

Representative Paxton is the very definition of a conservative Republican. He has ranked among the most consistent conservatives in the Texas House throughout his tenure as state representative, and our board of directors is confident in his ability to lead the Texas House beginning in January.

The Republican Assembly board is demanding that Republicans caucus and select the speaker without input from the Democrats. We are endorsing Ken Paxton and are recommending that legislators support and vote for him.

The board of directors chose to endorse in the speaker's race without the membership of the Republican Assembly due to the time constraints in this race.

The Texas Republican Assembly is comprised of chapters around the state of Texas. The organization regularly endorses in Republican primary contests, and this year endorsed conservatives such as incoming state representatives David Simpson, Erwin Cain, Charles Perry, and others.

The Texas Republican Assembly is a grassroots movement to take back the Republican Party for the vast and disenfranchised majority of its members: Reagan conservatives, who believe in small government, lower taxes, free market capitalism, a strong defense, the right to life, and a decent and moral America.

    Voters sent a message in November that they believe in the direction the Republican Party has taken this state, and elected a record number of GOP members to serve in the House. Much of this success was due to the LEADERSHIP of the Republican Party in the previous years, of which Mr. Straus has played a critical role. He is the best man to continue leading Texas in the upcoming session. He is a strong conservative and has shown he is capable of getting things accomplished. Despite the efforts of a handful of individuals, the majority of conservatives continue to support Mr. Starus. I have let my representative know that myself and my family all support Mr. Straus and I have been encouraging my friends to do the same.

    Are you kidding me
    Straus is a RINO, he became speaker because of liberal democrats, he had nothing to do with the record number of PUBs being elected to the house
