Senator Rand Paul announced his endorsement of conservative Republican Don Huffines for Governor of Texas.
“It is my pleasure to endorse my friend Don Huffines for governor of Texas. I have known Don for over 20 years. He is a loyal, steadfast fighter for limited, constitutional government. He has been in the thick of every conservative fight since I have known him. He is unafraid to stand up to the establishment. He is someone who will defend our freedoms.
“When other Republicans would say, ‘Wear a mask, stay inside. You must do this, you must do that,’ when other Republicans were siding with Dr. Fauci, it was Don Huffines who would stand up and say he will side for your freedom. … Vote for my friend Don Huffines.”
Paul has become a household name among Republicans as the leading national voice of consistent reason against Dr. Anthony Fauci and other shutdown proponents like Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. This week, Paul called out Fauci for lying to the American people about the National Institute of Health’s ties to the Wuhan lab where COVID originated. Paul was raised in Lake Jackson, Texas, where his father, former Texas congressman Ron Paul, still lives today.
“Rand Paul is one of the strongest and most effective champions of conservative principles in the nation, and it is an honor to have him join our fight to bring actual Republican leadership to the State of Texas. Rand understands that we cannot afford to let RINOs like Greg Abbott hide behind the Republican label to accumulate political power during election season, but then fail to deliver on behalf of their constituents once they’re in office. When Abbott had the chance to protect the freedoms of all Texans, he instead sided with power-hungry, pro-lockdown politicians in Washington. Abbott’s lockdowns killed more than 3 million Texas jobs in one week.
“We look forward to working with Rand to drain the Austin swamp and restore accountable government. No more RINOs.”
