Monday night, supporters of Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX-21) gathered in San Antonio at the Quarry Hofbrau & Beer Garden to watch as the high-profile freshman congressman announced his re-election bid.
Sticking to similar themes from his 2018 campaign, Roy reiterated his focus on issues such as healthcare freedom, the national debt/spending, and securing the border.
Another topic Roy spoke at length on was the President’s designation of the Mexican drug cartels as “foreign terrorist organizations” — Roy himself introduced a bill to encourage the State Department to do just back in the spring.
Roy’s campaign told The Texan there were over 300 people in attendance.
A spokesman for Roy’s campaign stated, “Last night’s campaign kickoff rally was a demonstration of what happens when you have a leader like Congressman Chip Roy who, once elected, does exactly what he said he would do.”
