Texas Values Action Endorses Dan Patrick, Ken Paxton, Sid Miller, First Round of Texas Legislators

November 2, 2017

The March 6, 2018 Republican Primary election provides a significant opportunity for Texans to elect principled conservative candidates that will stand for faith, family, and freedom across the Lone Star State. Texas Values Action is in the process of vetting candidates across the state on important issues, including religious liberty, marriage and family, life, and privacy.

We are proud to release our first round of endorsements today, including statewide endorsements for Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, Attorney General Ken Paxton, and Agricultural Commissioner Sid Miller, as well as a first round of endorsements for the Texas House and Senate:

“Dan Patrick has demonstrated time and again that he is a leader on the issues of faith, family and freedom,” said Texas Values Action president, Jonathan Saenz. “He is a proven pro-life champion, a strong defender of family values, and has led the effort to protect the privacy and dignity of Texans in intimate facilities. His leadership has made possible a long list of pro-family victories over the years and in the most recent legislative session. Texas Values Action wholeheartedly endorses Dan Patrick for another term as Lieutenant Governor of Texas.”

“Throughout his career in public service, Ken Paxton has a consistent history of standing up for our values,” said Texas Values Action president, Jonathan Saenz. “As a member of the Texas House of Representatives he pushed back against moderate leadership — even running for Speaker against Joe Straus. As Attorney General, Paxton has without fail defended the side of life and religious liberty. He courageously stood up against mandates from the previous Administration that would threaten families, including successfully halting President Obama’s edict to force public schools to open up girls’ bathroom to boys. Texas Values Action wholeheartedly endorses the re-election of Ken Paxton for Texas Attorney General.”

“Texas Values Action proudly endorses Sid Miller for Commissioner of the Texas Department of Agriculture,” said Texas Values Action president, Jonathan Saenz. “Sid Miller has proven time and again at the statewide level and in his time in the Texas House of Representatives that he can be trusted to support the values that keep Texas strong. Sid Miller has been a champion for life, and his bold voice and commitment to family values will continue to serve Texas well.”
