Former NFL Player and Texas businessman Scott Turner announced today the endorsement of the Collin County Conservative Republicans (CCCR), an organization which seeks to promote fiscal and socially conservative principles in Collin County.
CCCR President Tracy Rath said, “After an extensive vetting process, we have great confidence that Scott’s conservative views on the issues and his unwavering moral conviction make him the best fit for this job. With his strong leadership and inspiring message, Scott Turner will be the breath of fresh air that Austin needs. Scott Turner has earned an enthusiastic endorsement from Collin County Conservative Republicans.”
Turner stated, “The mission of Collin County Conservative Republicans is to support principled conservatives so this endorsement is quite an honor. I thank them for the work they do in advancing our conservative values and appreciate their support and encouragement.”
The CCCR endorsement follows a string of key conservative endorsements earned by Turner, including taxpayer watchdog Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, Young Conservatives of Texas, as well as statewide conservative leaders Kelly Shackelford, Cathie Adams, and David Barton. Turner is seeking the Republican nomination for the new Texas House seat based in Collin and Rockwall counties. Created as a result of growing population in those counties, the new district was drawn from areas currently represented by State Reps. Ken Paxton and Jodie Laubenberg.
