It is a privilege to work alongside so many dedicated House Members, and I am deeply humbled by those who have made the decision to support my candidacy. When the House stands together in unity, we can do great things. I look forward to bringing together my colleagues to continue the tradition of strong bipartisan leadership in the Texas House.”
