Washington has a bull’s-eye on our great state, and we need bold leadership to hold the line against our out-of-control federal government. I am extremely grateful to Attorney General Abbott for his tireless efforts to push back the federal government as it continually attempts to encroach on our rights and liberties.
And now that he has announced his plans to run for Governor, it’s time for another leader, a proven conservative to follow in his footsteps. That is why, today — here with family, friends, fellow Republicans, Tea Party Patriots, and dedicated conservatives — I am announcing my candidacy for Attorney General of the Great State of Texas.
