Dripping Springs, Texas – Today, Congressman Chip Roy (TX-21) filed for re-election in 2024.
“When I ran for Congress in 2018, I made a commitment to my constituents: if given the opportunity to represent them in Congress, I would work tirelessly to disrupt the status quo, return power to the American people, and protect the God-given right to live free for our children and future generations.
I have tried my best to do that – and am asking my constituents for the opportunity to continue that fight on their behalf.
Over the past five years, we’ve unapologetically battled the establishment head on – highlighting the broken ways of Washington marked primarily by reckless, unaccountable spending and debt accumulation that is funding tyranny against the people and crushing the American dream.
We have made progress. We forced an end to most back-room deals and at least a partial return to regular order so that all voices can be heard. We passed the most conservative border security bill ever written through the House – something Republicans failed to do with a bigger majority and President Trump in the White House. And we passed a conservative defense bill for the first time in decades that would return our military to its mission rather than social engineering.
But, the “uniparty” formed by the radical left and the Washington establishment in both parties fights every step of the way as it wages war against a free American people.
- Washington forces open borders upon us, putting Texans in danger.
- Washington spends money recklessly and destroys the American dream.
- Washington funds the cultural destruction of America through a radical woke agenda.
- Washington engages in endless wars without regard to the impact on Americans.
- Washington destroys American energy chasing a cult-like radical “climate” agenda.
- Washington destroys American healthcare – making it unaffordable and out of reach.
The Swamp is drowning us collectively in a sea of debt and expansive socialist spending – and we are called to fight back. This fight will determine whether the United States continues to be a free, prosperous, and sovereign nation or if we forsake principles of American exceptionalism for political expediency, corporate cronyism, radical leftism – and worst of all, acquiescence.
We cannot win minds and hearts by waiting for elections. We must act now to use the tools at our disposal to stand up for the Texans and Americans who entrusted us to lead.
I’m running for re-election to stop Washington from destroying America. The uniparty and entrenched forces that are content with the status quo must be dismantled.
My campaign is all in. I am all in. It’s time to meet the moment and save the Republic.”
Roy is currently serving his third term in Texas’s 21st Congressional District, serving on the House Judiciary, Rules, and Budget Committees and is the Policy Chair of the House Freedom Caucus.
