Thank you for your continued support!
We are proud to announce our Wharton County Co-Chairs as we continue to promote our message of restoring faith and trust in government while we fight to secure our border, reduce deficit spending, fight for the unborn, focus on long-term recovery for those affected by Hurricane Harvey, and creating a better economic climate by fighting federal overreach. Most importantly, it is my promise to put the constituents of Congressional District 27 first when I’m in Washington.
