Last Tuesday, at our campaign kickoff attended by hundreds of supporters (see below) I signed the papers to be on the March 6 Republican primary ballot for Texas State Senate. As you can see, I had lots of friends to witness this great moment!
Today, I’m also honored to announce two key endorsements. First, I’m honored to earn support from the Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, which stands strong in defense of pro-family legislation.
Ann Hettinger, Texas State Director of Concerned Women for America, said, “In Angela Paxton, the voters of SD 8 have the opportunity to elect someone of sterling character, solid integrity, and endearing dedication to the values and principles we hold dear. Her inspiring life story of adoption has prepared her to be a powerful voice in defending life, and her deep roots in the district will allow her to serve as an effective leader for her constituents. We wholeheartedly endorse her for Texas State Senate.” (See full press release HERE.)
Second, I’m honored to have earned the endorsement of the Collin County Deputies Association (CCDA), comprised of approximately 200 law enforcement and first responder employees across Collin County.
CCDA President Jared Clark wrote to me, “It is clearly evident that you have a heartfelt appreciation for the work and challenges that face all of our law enforcement officers in the State of Texas. It is because of your deep concern over the challenges presented to law enforcement officers and your desire to maintain a productive line of communication with those in our profession that I am happy to inform you that the Collin County Deputies Association endorses your candidacy for election to the office of Texas State Senate District 8.”
I am humbled and honored to earn the endorsement of the Collin County Deputies Association. I have the utmost respect and admiration for those who put their lives on the line for us every day, whether peace officers or the dedicated first responders who often confront tragic and perilous situations to protect our citizens. These public servants tirelessly serve our communities to ensure we can go about our daily lives in peace and safety. They have our backs; we need to have theirs.
I’m thankful for the growing support we earn each week. If you haven’t signed up to support us, please do so here. See you on the campaign trail!
