Governor-elect Greg Abbott Endorses Lois Kolkhorst
AUSTIN – Texas Governor-elect Greg Abbott today announced his endorsement of State Representative Lois Kolkhorst in the special election to fill the Texas Senate seat left vacant by State Senator Glenn Hegar’s recent election as Comptroller.
“Lois is a job creator, a proven conservative and a principled and effective public servant,” said Abbott. “During her time in the legislature, Lois has been a steadfast advocate for job creation, smaller government and a secure border. She has stood shoulder to shoulder with our fellow conservatives – and my office – in the fight against federal government overreach. The voters of the 18th district couldn’t find a better advocate to preserve our Texas values and build an even better future for our state.”
“I am honored to have the endorsement of Governor-elect Greg Abbott,” Kolkhorst said. “Greg Abbott has fought tirelessly to defend our state from the federal government and has been a strong leader in Texas for our conservative principles. I look forward to working with him as the next senator from District 18.”
The special election for Senate District 18 will take place on December 6th. Early voting begins on November 26th and continues through December 2nd.
