State Senator Ken Paxton of McKinney, Republican candidate for Attorney General, demonstrated strong East Texas support Tuesday as he released a list of more than 220 Smith County business and community leaders, Republican activists, and current and former elected officials endorsing his candidacy. The list includes all three Smith County Republican County commissioners, Former Tyler Mayor Joey Seeber, Former State Representative Leo Berman, both State Republican Executive Committee (SREC) members who represent Smith County, and numerous GOP precinct chairs (see list at end of release). Senator Paxton has previously been endorsed by State Representatives Matt Schaefer and Bryan Hughes, both of whom represent Smith County.
Paxton said, “From the start of our campaign and winning the very first straw poll here in East Texas, we have worked hard to earn the trust and support of Smith County conservatives. Today, I’m honored and humbled by this outpouring of support from one of the most important counties in the state. As Attorney General, East Texans can count on me to fight the encroachment of the Obama administration, defend the strongest pro-life bill in the nation, support efforts to secure our border, stand firm for traditional marriage, and uphold our voter ID laws.”
The list was released on the day that Senator Paxton is visiting East Texas cities including Texarkana, Marshall, and Longview.
