In another major campaign endorsement for Republican Scott Turner, State Rep. Ken Paxton announced his endorsement of the former NFL Player and Texas businessman to serve as State Representative for Texas District 33.
Representative Paxton stated, “Scott Turner is not only a dear friend, he’s a man we can depend on to withstand the pressure to raise taxes and grow government. I have known Scott for many years and can attest to his personal integrity and his passion for our conservative agenda. I am pleased to provide him with my strongest endorsement.”
Paxton continued, “Scott Turner has earned the overwhelming support of conservative leaders and organizations that have made an endorsement in this campaign, and it’s easy to see why. Scott is the true conservative we can trust.”
Responding to the endorsement, Scott Turner said, “For almost ten years, Ken Paxton has been a conservative statesman for Texas, and a courageous champion for our values and principles. His leadership has advanced the ball in promoting legislation to reduce taxes and support the growth of jobs and a strong Texas economy. Ken has also been unwavering in his defense of our pro-life, pro-family values. I’m honored to have Ken Paxton’s endorsement, and look forward to working with him as he moves to the Texas Senate.”
Representative Paxton has consistently earned the highest ratings from conservative organizations such as Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, Texas Right to Life, and Young Conservatives of Texas. He was first elected to the Texas House in 2002. As he seeks election to the Texas State Senate from heavily Republican SD 8, Rep. Paxton is running unopposed in the Republican primary.
Mr. Turner is seeking the Republican nomination for the new Texas House District 33 based in Collin and Rockwall counties. Created as a result of growing population in those counties, the new district was drawn from areas currently represented by State Reps. Ken Paxton and Jodie Laubenberg.
Turner has previously earned endorsements from Rep. Jodie Laubenberg, Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, Young Conservatives of Texas, Texas Right to Life, and Texas Association of Business BACPAC.
