In her endorsement, Adams highlighted Kolkhorst’s critical leadership against Obamacare. “Lois Kolkhorst led the fight against Obamacare in Texas,” stated Adams. “She has fought for our social and fiscal conservative values in the Texas House and she will make a great State Senator. Lois Kolkhorst is the fighter we need in the Texas Senate.”
“I am honored to have Cathie be part of our campaign,” commented Kolkhorst. “Conservatives have been eager to unite behind our campaign, and Cathie’s dedication to pro-family and pro-life principles are second to none. I want to thank Cathie again for her endorsement, and I know just how many Texans look to her for counsel on who deserves their vote.”
