Gov. Abbott Demands Blake Farenthold “Cover All Costs” For The Special Election To Fill His Seat

150 150 Bruun for Congress

Bech Bruun released the following statement in response to Governor Abbott’s Letter to the former Congressman:

“I wholeheartedly agree with Governor Abbott that this district needs leadership and Congressional District 27 should not have to pay the price for former Congressman Farenthold’s actions. I have felt this way since Day 1 and have been the only one in my race on record to ask him to repay the $84,000 back to the taxpayers.

I decided to get into this race when Hurricane Harvey hit the Gulf Coast and my family’s home in Rockport. I served on the Governor’s Commission to Rebuild Texas and I knew right away the long term recovery efforts it would take on the federal level to rebuild our Gulf Coast. In my heart, I knew then and I know now more than ever that I am the most qualified to take my experience serving the State of Texas and use it to serve the needs of the constituents throughout CD-27.”
