Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott
Endorses Craig Estes
For Reelection to the Texas Senate
State’s top legal watchdog endorses State Senator Craig Estes and calls him an
important ally in the fight FOR Texas conservative values

WICHITA FALLS, TX –Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott today endorsed State
Senator Craig Estes (R-Wichita Falls) for reelection. Estes currently serves Senate
District 30 that spans from North Texas around the DFW Metroplex to as far south as
Erath County.

“Craig Estes is an important ally in the fight FOR our Texas conservative values and
AGAINST federal government overreach,” said Abbott. “I enthusiastically endorse Craig
and look forward to continuing our work together on behalf of Texas and Texans.”

Abbott’s announcement comes just two weeks after filing a lawsuit against the Obama
administration’s Department of Justice for striking down Texas’ new photo Voter ID law,
and the same week that the United States Supreme Court is hearing Texas’ case against
Obamacare. Senator Estes co-authored the state’s new voter photo ID law and strongly
opposes Obamacare.

“I strongly support General Abbott’s efforts to uphold our state’s new voter Photo ID law
and overturn Obamacare,” said Estes. “Texas couldn’t have a better watchdog and I am
honored to have his vote of confidence.”

In addition to his leadership on passing the state’s new voter Photo ID law last session,
Estes also helped pass a balanced budget with no new taxes, a resolution calling for a
federal balanced budget, stronger border security measures, landmark private property
owner rights legislation, stronger 2nd amendment rights legislation, legislation that
restores local control to public schools, and “loser pays” tort reform legislation.

For is leadership, Estes has been endorsed by conservative leaders across his district
including U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry; State Senator and Legislative TEA Party
Caucus Chair Dan Patrick; State Representatives Myra Crownover, Rick Hardcastle, Jim
Keffer, Lanham Lyne, Tan Parker and Larry Phillips; Denton County Judge Mary Horn,
and Parker County WallBuilder Founder and former Vice Chair of the Republican Party
of Texas David Barton.

Estes has also been endorsed by conservative organizations including the National Rifle
Association (NRA), Texas State Rifle Association, Texas Farm Bureau AGFUND, Texas
Association of Realtors, Texas Right to Life, Texas Alliance for Life, and the Texas
Retailers Association.

One response

  1. Abbott can’t even enforce compliance with our Election Code here in Parker County. One person who shall remain nameless believes themselves to be above the law when it comes to following the Election Code. And this same person has had numerous ethics commission violations as well as disenfranchising eligible delegates to the State Delegate Convention. You think Mr Abbott’s endorsement means anything to the voters when he allows their rights to be trampled upon.
