Jeff Judson Announces Endorsements from Almost One-half All SREC Members

Reflects Widespread Disagreement with House Leadership

Jeff Judson, Candidate for Texas House District 121, today announced that almost one-half of the entire State Republican Executive Committee have endorsed his candidacy.  These endorsements reflect a high level of trust in the leadership abilities and experience of Jeff Judson, but also a high level of dissatisfaction with the leadership of the Texas House under Speaker Joe Straus.

Alma Perez Jackson, SREC Committeewoman from Senate District 26 in San Antonio said, “I have known and worked with Jeff here in Bexar County, and on the SREC, and he represents the future of our Republican Party.  No one has done more than Jeff to build bipartisan coalitions to challenge local politicians who work against the taxpayers.  Jeff Judson will do a better job of representing HD 121 and will allow the Texas House to choose a Speaker who agrees, rather than who works against, the priorities of the Governor, Lt. Governor, and the grassroots voters.”

John Beckmeyer, SREC committeeman from Senate District 28 said, “Jeff Judson’s long list of endorsements from members of the SREC is a reflection of our strong confidence in Jeff and our desire to have a new House Speaker who is in touch with the direction of our State. Given Jeff’s many years of service working for the conservative cause, I know he can win this race and that he will be a productive and courageous member of the House from day one.”

Karl Voigtsberger, SREC Committeeman from SD 8 said, "We are strongly behind Jeff and look forward to greater productivity and harmony with the Texas House under a new Speaker.”

It should be noted that SREC members not endorsing Jeff are not necessarily endorsing Joe Straus for reelection.  In fact, very few, if any, are.

SD 1 – Sue Evenwel
SD 2 – David Hale and Vicki Slaton
SD 6 – Chris McDonald and Glenda Bowles
SD 7 – Mark Ramsey

  1. Jeff Judson would best represent the citizens in HD 121. His opponent, on the other hand, represents himself and special interests.
