Texas Values Action Endorses Briscoe Cain for Texas House
Texas Values Action proudly endorses Briscoe Cain for the Texas House of Representatives, House District 128. Cain is an attorney and community leader who has fought for religious freedom, including representing pastors against the City of Houston’s unconstitutional attacks on First Amendment rights. Cain is challenging Rep. Wayne Smith in the March 1 Republican Primary.
Briscoe Cain is currently the lead attorney for a group of law enforcement officers who had their Bible study banned by the City of Beaumont. Briscoe Cain stepped in and successfully fought for the religious freedom rights for the officers, drawing the praise of many statewide elected officials.
“Briscoe Cain is a proven leader for religious freedom, marriage, and life. His unwavering commitment to fighting for faith, family, and freedom leave no doubt he is the right choice to serve in the Texas House. With Briscoe Cain in the Texas House, the people of House District 128 will have a courageous leader for the values that matter to Texans,” said Jonathan Saenz, President of Texas Values Action.
Rep. Wayne Smith was one of the lowest scoring Republicans in the 2015 Faith and Family Scorecard (66%). During the 2015 session, Smith voted for a bill that would have infringed the First Amendment free speech rights of conservative non-profits and potentially even churches. Texas Values Action helped lead efforts to defeat the bill.
Early Voting: February 16 – February 26
Primary Election Day: March 1
