My Top Priorities

California, Take Notes…

Sacramento has a $22.5 billion deficit, Austin has a $32.7 billion surplus. Here’s why.

California’s reckless spending has caused them to sink into debt. As Lt. Governor, I have always delivered a balanced conservative budget that funds education, public safety, border security, and other key matters while staying within a budget that does not outgrow population times inflation. Even with a surplus budget, we must not spend all the money. We must keep a responsible reserve in case Joe Biden’s inflationary policies and out-of-control spending causes a national recession in 2023 and 2024.

Mourning the Loss of Lynette Hardaway, a True Patriot

Lynette Hardaway

Lynette Hardaway, known to millions as Diamond of the pro-Trump duo “Diamond and Silk,” has sadly passed away this week at age 51. I had the pleasure of working with Diamond and Silk, two wonderful ladies. Lynette was always such a pleasure. She was a conservative icon and a true patriot. She will be greatly missed.

Thank you all for your support and everything you do to make Texas the greatest place on earth. May God bless you and your family, and may He continue to bless the greatest state of all—Texas.
