Texas House Speaker Joe Straus (R-San Antonio) released the following statement Wednesday on Texas House races in the 2014 primaries:
“The vast majority of Members who faced primary challenges won their races, and that’s not an accident. Voters see the Texas House identifying key priorities, building consensus and working to solve our most significant challenges. The results in these races prove that Texans support our constructive approach.
“While many offices and agencies will soon enter periods of transition, the Texas House is ready to lead. The work of preparing for the next legislative session is underway, and it will accelerate in the months ahead. The House will enter the next session ready to act on an agenda that prioritizes economic opportunity, education, infrastructure and fiscal discipline. We welcome others who want to join in those efforts.
“I want to congratulate all of the winners of Tuesday’s primaries, as well as the candidates who advanced to runoffs. As this election year continues, I encourage them to articulate a positive vision that focuses on responsible solutions for a state that continues to grow rapidly.”
Speaker Joe Straus (R-San Antonio) released the following statement following his decisive victory in the Republican primary for Texas House District 121:
“I want to thank the voters in our district who made it to the polls today and over the last couple of weeks, as well as the many volunteers who helped our campaign. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to keep serving this community. I will continue working to provide responsible leadership for San Antonio and our entire state.”
