Statement From Speaker Joe Straus
Texas House Speaker Joe Straus released the following statement on his decisive victory in the Republican primary for House District 121:
"I want to thank the people of District 121 for their tremendous support and confidence. I'm proud of the campaign we ran and the positive message we delivered. A couple of people who live far away from here once again tried to take this seat from our community, and they have once again failed. Voters showed that angry rhetoric and dishonest ads are no match for a well-organized campaign that looks to a brighter future. It is an honor to represent the people of District 121 and I will continue to work tirelessly and gladly on their behalf."
