Georgetown, TX) – Today, Congressman John Carter (R-TX) announced he is running for reelection in Texas’ 31st district, encompassing Burnet, Bosque, Hamilton, and Coryell counties and parts of Bell and Williamson counties.
“Being the conservative voice for Texas’ 31st district is one of the greatest honors of my life. In the first eight months of the Republican Majority in Congress, I’ve worked with my colleagues to cut over 20% of wasteful Washington spending, wrote and passed the most conservative border security bill in decades, and stood in the way of Biden’s woke priorities at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
“Two weeks ago, I passed the first appropriations bill through the House and prevented taxpayers from footing the bill for sex changes and abortions, brought $200 million back to our Texas military bases, and used the power of the purse to increase accountability at the VA.
“We’ve seen a lot of success, and as a Texas conservative chairman in the House, I’m in the position to keep those conservative wins going. That’s why I’m kicking off my reelection campaign for Texas’ 31st district today.
“I want to thank central Texas for allowing me to continue fighting to bring more of Texas to Washington and keep Washington out of Texas. Your faith in me has allowed me to advocate on your behalf against the federal bureaucrats and return over $5 million to TX-31 taxpayers since January. Now is no time to slow down. It’s time to rely on experienced, proven leadership to build upon our conservative wins and stop Democrats in their tracks.”
