Conservative small businessman and State Representative Randy Weber picked up a key endorsement today from Governor Rick Perry in the race for U.S. Congress (TX-14). Perry, one of the state and the nation's most influential conservatives, threw his support behind Weber because of his successful track record of fighting for conservative causes in the Texas Legislature.
"I've seen Randy Weber handle some of the toughest legislation in the Texas State House of Representatives and win. He's a bold leader that doesn't flinch. If anyone can fight to repeal Obamacare, stand up to the Obama agenda, defend state's rights, and turn Washington around, it's a rock solid conservative like Randy Weber," said Governor Perry.
"I'm honored to have Governor Perry's support," said Weber. "Together, with his leadership, we've been able to create a better business climate for Texas, cut spending and protect innocent life. That's the kind of track record that I want to take to Congress and restore conservative principles to Washington."
Perry's recent statement of support comes on the heels of a series of high profile endorsements which include BAC PAC, the political arm of the Texas Association of Business, the Young Conservatives of Texas and Texas Right to Life. All groups have endorsed in recognition of Weber's proven conservative record.
