AUSTIN, TX — U.S. Sen. Rand Paul endorsed Chip Roy for Congress today, making the following statement:
“Texas holds a place near and dear to my heart. I grew up there and much of my family is still there. I wholeheartedly endorse Chip Roy for reelection to the U.S. Congress in Texas’ 21st District.
“In Chip, Texans have a strong, independent voice who stands up for liberty and to defend the people and values of central Texas. He has been an unwavering ally in the House of Representatives in our ongoing fights to defend liberty, reduce our debt, and advocate for limited government.
“Chip is unafraid to buck party leadership or the Washington Establishment when it’s the right thing to do for Texas, and he has worked with me and democrat colleagues to demand we debate and vote on a new authorization of military force to ensure our military has a clear mission without being endlessly at war.
“Chip is unafraid to stand up for America and I’m proud to support and endorse his campaign for reelection.”
