"The jobs report released yesterday proved what we already know. Our current economic policies are stifling job growth and opportunity for the American people. Last month, our unemployment rate ticked up, more people applied for jobless benefits, and our economy shrunk for first time since 2009. What we're seeing nationwide is the opposite of what we're seeing in Texas, and that's because here at home we have pro growth policies that keep the American dream in reach for everyone. I'm committed to bringing Texas's success to the entire country."
