AUSTIN, Texas — U.S. Rep. Chip Roy released the following statement after being declared the winner in the race for U.S. Representative for the 21st Congressional District of Texas:
“As Americans, we are bound together by an idea larger than political discourse. We are bound by a shared belief in the greatness of Texas and our nation, and the centrality of both freedom and the rule of law to our prosperity as a people.
“On election night, Texans in the Hill Country demonstrated our collective resolve to preserve these important ideals for ourselves and our children and grandchildren, so that they may inherit a stronger, safer, and freer country.
“I am honored to represent the great people, businesses, and communities of the 21st Congressional District in Texas – and I appreciate the faith those people have placed in me to continue to represent them.
“It is time we stand up for America – to ensure that the sacrifices of those who have fought, bled, and died for this country are honored by national leaders who will unapologetically stand up for the forgotten men and women who make this country work, for the law enforcement officers who keep our communities safe, and for the values reflected in our nation’s founding.”
