AUSTIN, TX – Today, Congressman Michael McCaul announces his 2018 reelection campaign co-chairs: Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, Senator Lois Kolkhorst, Senator Paul Bettencourt, Representative Tom Oliverson, Representative Valoree Swanson, Representative Kevin Roberts, Representative Mike Schofield, Representative Leighton Schubert, Representative John Cyrier, and Representative Paul Workman. This across-the-board, conservative support from leaders within Texas’ Congressional 10th District exhibits the respect and appreciation for McCaul’s leadership in Congress.
“I am flattered and honored to have the support of each of these great Texans,” said McCaul. “Texas is lucky to have these leaders fighting for conservative policies in our state each and every day. With their help, I will continue that fight in Congress and ensure the safety of the American people from the dangerous threats our nation faces,” he continued.
“Congressman McCaul is a conservative freedom fighter who works hard for Texas values and liberty. He is committed to keeping our border secure and our country safe.” Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick
“Congressman McCaul works hard for the people of CD10. As Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, he is a proven leader dedicated to protecting our nation from threats both foreign and domestic.” State Senator Lois W. Kolkhorst (R-Brenham)
“I think we all sleep a little better at night knowing that Congressman Michael McCaul is the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee and an expert on the terrorism threats we face. The world is a truly dangerous place and Chairman McCaul is the leader we need protecting our country.” State Senator Paul Bettencourt (R-Houston)
“As a resident of the 10th district and a fellow elected official, I am proud to stand with Michael McCaul. His leadership on Homeland Security has kept America safe and his dedication to our community in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey has been vital to our recovery efforts.” State Representative Tom Oliverson (R-Tomball)
“Congressman McCaul is a true statesman. He prioritizes the needs of our state and places Texans’ well-being above all else. I am proud to support him in his re-election campaign so he can continue to move legislation through Congress that protects the homeland, places our national security first, and keeps Texans safe.” State Representative Valoree Swanson (R- Spring)
“As the Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security in the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman McCaul is leading the fight to secure our borders and ensure our country is safe. Last legislative session, I worked closely with Congressman McCaul to limit government growth and decrease the number of over-burdensome regulations on businesses in Texas. He is a true conservative leader who works hard for Texans and fights to protect our liberty and freedoms.” State Representative Kevin Roberts (R-Spring)
“When Harvey flooded our community, Congressman McCaul was the first one to respond with a plan for real flood control. As powerful a voice as he is in Washington as Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, he never forgot that his first duty is to represent our district.” State Representative Mike Schofield (R-Katy)
“Congressman McCaul is a strong leader who has stood firm on conservative principles as he fights for CD10. And as Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee he is a leader who realizes that America, as the leader of the free world, is both the envy and the target of terrorists and that it’s better to fight the war on terror abroad, rather than here in Texas. I am both honored and proud to stand with him in his re-election campaign for another term as our Congressman.” State Representative Leighton Schubert (R-Brenham)
“Congressman McCaul is the type of leader you want representing you in Congress. He fights for what’s important and makes sure his constituents’ voices get heard. His work for our district and our country makes me proud to support him for re-election.” State Representative John Cyrier (R-Bastrop)
“I wholeheartedly endorse Michael McCaul for re-election to Congress. His steadfast service to our country and leadership on the Homeland Security Committee, particularly on border security issues, are second to none and vital to the safety and security of our nation.” State Representative Paul Workman (R-Austin)
