In advance of the special election, Texans for Fiscal Responsibility today endorsed Lois Kolkhorst in the election to fill the open SD18 seat.
“Lois Kolkhorst has established a strong record in the House protecting Texas from federal overreach and intrusion,” said TFR president Michael Quinn Sullivan, noting her successful work in promoting the Health Care Compact in 2011.
“Lois Kolkhorst will fight for the common sense values Texans hold most dear,” added Sullivan. “She can be counted on to oppose new taxes, fight for a stronger Texas economy, and limit government spending.”
Kolkhorst also joined two dozen other conservatives in opposing the 2013 budget.
SD18 is an open-seat race following the election of the incumbent, Glenn Hegar, as Texas’ next comptroller. Hegar endorsed Kolkhorst earlier this week.
