In a phone conversation earlier this week, a representative from NOW PAC explained that they felt our support of women’s issues such as reproductive rights, maternal healthcare, and equal pay had earned us their support. In their official endorsement letter, they said they look forward to working with me to achieve full equality for women and girls.

Let me tell you, I’m looking forward to doing exactly that while serving you in Congress. As most you know, my mother and sisters had an enormous impact on me while growing up. My wife, Amanda, continues to inspire me with her courage and leadership. And my daughter, Claire, is as strong and successful as I always believed she would be. With so many incredible women surrounding me, I am obligated to do everything in my power to help them achieve full equality.

Thank you for your support. Thank you for your help. Thank you for working for the women and girls in West Texas and across this country.
