(Austin, TX) – John Carter (R-TX-31) filed for re-election in Texas’ 31st congressional district at the Republican Party of Texas headquarters over the weekend.
“Serving the patriotic people of my district in the United States Congress is an honor of a lifetime, and there’s still more work to do,” said Carter. “I’m energized to keep holding the Biden administration accountable through the power of the purse, get the Secure the Border Act that I co-wrote across the finish line, and cut government waste. Central Texans want results, and with my position as a conservative chairman in the House, member of the influential Steering Committee, and seniority in the Texas delegation, I’m delivering.
“In the first 11 months of this Congress alone, I’ve prevented taxpayers from footing the bill for gender reassignment surgeries, brought $200 million back to Texas military bases, zeroed out the budget for VA bureaucrats that lied to veterans, and secured over $22 million for Texas’ 31st district in the appropriations bills that have passed the House so far.
“I sincerely thank Central Texans for allowing me the opportunity to earn your vote and bring our Texas values to Washington. I’m not slowing down, and I’ll be wearing my boots out to earn every vote I can in March.”
