Kingwood Tea Party Endorses Creighton for Senate District 4

KINGWOOD – The Kingwood TEA Party has announced its endorsement of Brandon Creighton for Senate District 4 following a unanimous vote of its Board of Directors. Creighton has declared his intention to seek the Senate District 4 seat currently held by Tommy Williams, who has stated he will resign from the Texas Senate before the 2015 legislative session.

“The Kingwood TEA Party is proud to endorse Brandon Creighton’s campaign for the Texas State Senate and is pleased to have a conservative of this caliber in the Senate District 4 race,” said Robin Lennon, President of the Kingwood TEA Party. “We are in dire need of public servants like Brandon in the Kingwood and North Houston area who cherish the Constitution and our founding principles of freedom, fiscal responsibility, limited government, and a free market. Brandon Creighton is a conservative fighter who will help us in the fight to turn our Texas Senate really red, keeping Texas strong in these uncertain times.”

The Kingwood TEA Party, a founding member of the Texas TEA Party Caucus Advisory Committee, was the one of the first TEA parties in Texas to support Ted Cruz in the primary race for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate.

“I am honored by the support of the Kingwood TEA Party and the backing of conservative leaders from a booming community outside of my current House district,” Creighton said. “I share its commitment to seek a leaner government by cutting taxes that strain our families’ checkbooks and reducing government spending. We must uphold Texas’ strong economic climate to support the continued creation of jobs and promotion of local businesses.”

Creighton, consistently ranked as one of the most conservative Texas House members, began representing District 16 in 2007. He received national acclaim for defending Texas’ sovereignty and for passing landmark tort reform legislation. He has been a constant champion for 2nd Amendment rights and for protecting the sanctity of human life. He has focused on keeping Texas the top job-creating state by voting for and supporting free market principles that make this state the economic engine of nation. Elected by his peers as Republican Caucus Chairman in 2013, Creighton led the Caucus in preventing Medicaid expansion in Texas, and the conservative web site RedState recently described him as, “The Man Who Kept Obamacare Out of Texas.”
