Huckabee Releases Statement about Dewhurst’s Bid in Texas
Little Rock, AR – Governor Mike Huckabee issued the following statement about David Dewhurst:
“Huck PAC and I are pleased to endorse Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst for U.S. Senate from Texas. A native Texan, David Dewhurst has served as Lieutenant Governor and President of the Texas Senate since 2003.
Lt. Governor Dewhurst is a strong fiscal conservative, with a record to show for it. He’s been an ardent supporter of legislation to create new jobs and improve the economy of Texas. Lt. Governor Dewhurst repeatedly helped cut spending and taxes, including the largest tax cut in Texas history and balancing every budget since taking office. As a result, Texas' economy has grown faster than the national economy and more Texans are employed than at any other time in the state's history.
Not only is he a fiscal conservative, but he shares our social values as well and will continue to fight for our shared values in Washington. Lt. Governor Dewhurst has worked on passing legislation to protect the sanctity of life and define marriage as a union between one man and one woman. He also strongly believes in our 2nd amendment rights.
I hope you will join me in supporting Lt. Governor David Dewhurst for U.S. Senate from Texas.
