Since being approached to run as a candidate for Attorney General of Texas a few months ago, I have devoted many hours of thought and prayer to a possible candidacy. The outpouring of support from my family and constituents in Senate District 19 — both in person through social media — has been awe-inspiring, to say the least.
Texas is a great state, but we can do better. I have seen firsthand the great needs that exist in Senate District 19. Public schools and universities are underfunded, healthcare is often not accessible, and for many in the district, health insurance is unaffordable.
