Patrick Files Papers to Officially Put President Donald J. Trump on the 2020 Texas Ballot
“A strong majority of Texans are ready to reelect the President, no matter what socialist, job-killing, energy-hating, tax increasing, pro-abortion, anti-gun candidate the Democrats manage to drag across the finish line. I am proud to officially add his name to the Texas 2020 ballot.”
AUSTIN TX – Lt. Governor Dan Patrick issued this statement today after he filed the ballot access papers in Austin to officially put President Donald J. Trump on the Texas ballot:
“President Trump has done what Texans elected him to do and a strong majority of Texans are ready to reelect him, no matter what socialist, job-killing, energy-hating, tax increasing, pro-abortion, anti-gun candidate the Democrats manage to drag across the finish line. I am proud to officially add his name to the Texas 2020 ballot.
“Under President Trump’s leadership, the Texas economy grew by 4% last year — one of the fastest in the nation. Texas has added 815,000 jobs since President Trump was elected and unemployment is at a record low of 3.4%. The average Texan saw a tax cut last year of over $1,300 as a result of the Trump tax cuts. In contrast to the Democrats’ “Green New Deal,” which would kill 2 million jobs in Texas, President Trump has reduced costly regulation and strongly supports Texas’ critical oil and gas sector.
“President Trump is a good friend to Texas who — in stark contrast to his predecessor — stepped up during Hurricane Harvey to ensure Texas had the funds needed for recovery and rebuilding. The President shares the belief of the majority of Texans that our southern border must be secure, and he is fighting every day to protect life, liberty and religious freedom and our Second Amendment rights while appointing principled conservative judges to the Supreme Court and the federal judiciary.
“President Trump’s policies have proved over and over again that the future of Texas and America is virtually unlimited. President Trump is the clear choice over the bleak socialist vision being offered by Democrats whose current effort to divide and disparage our country through the ridiculous impeachment charade is unprecedented. With Trump at the top of the ticket in 2020, I expect the margin of victory in Texas to increase from 2016 with big GOP wins up and down the ballot.”
