Royce West Announces Bid for US Senate in Texas

DALLAS, TX – Today, State Senator Royce West announced his bid to run against Senator John Cornyn for US Senate. He will face MJ Hegar, Houston City Councilwoman Amanda Edwards, former Congressman Chris Bell, and three others who have already declared in the Primary Election in March 2020. Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey commented:

“Royce West is just one more extremist far-left candidate in the race for Senate. He’s been in office for 26 years and has offered little more than oppressive gun control and far-left abortion policies to Texans. These do not align with the conservative policies which have led to Texas’ exceptionalism and West will have a hard time connecting his extremism with Texas voters.”
