Joins Chorus of Conservatives in Supporting Thompson’s Re-Election Bid

AUSTIN – Today, Governor Greg Abbott endorsed Ed Thompson for State Representative, District 29.

“Ed Thompson continues to be a tireless advocate for the citizens of District 29, and I am proud to endorse him for reelection,” Governor Abbott said. “As a State Representative, Ed has fought to reduce fraud and waste in state government, and he is a leader who truly understands the concerns of his constituents. Please join me in supporting Ed and sending him back to the State Capitol as we continue the fight to uphold conservative values.”

"It is such an honor to have the endorsement of Governor Greg Abbott, a man I deeply admire and respect," said Thompson. "Governor Abbott has been so instrumental in our state’s success, while serving the people of Texas both as Governor and as Attorney General. I would be honored to continue working closely with him to ensure the people of House District 29 can thrive in this great state, if I am re-elected.” 

Thompson secured the Republican nomination earlier this year with no opposition, but faces a Democrat opponent in November. Governor Abbott is joined by the National Rifle Association, Texans for Lawsuit Reform, Texas Right to Life, Texas Alliance for Life, Texas Association of Business, National Federation of Independent Business/Texas, Texas Farm Bureau, and conservative-minded people across the state in endorsing Thompson.
