Texas Elected Officials Congratulate Donald Trump on His Victory
Wednesday morning after Donald Trump's victory speech, numerous Texas politicians issued statements praising the president-elect's hard-fought win over Hillary Clinton.
The first statement came from Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “I congratulate Donald Trump on being elected the next President of the United States," Abbott said.
"One thing from this election is abundantly clear — millions of Americans feel they have been ignored by a political class in Washington, D.C. that prioritizes protecting an elite establishment before We the People. Now that the people have spoken, it is essential that elected officials work together to address the enormous challenges facing our nation.
"I look forward to working with the new administration to ensure that we secure our border, restore the balance of power between the states and the federal government, and end the federal overreach that has unfortunately become a staple of the outgoing executive’s legacy.
"Here in Texas, we will continue to fight for conservative, limited government principles that create economic opportunity and prosperity for all," Abbott concluded.
Jodey Arrington, who was elected Congressman for Texas 19 said, "Congratulations to Donald Trump on becoming the next President of the United States! As the next Congressman from District 19, I look forward to working with him to restore America's greatness, and return the power back to WE THE PEOPLE.
"The message from the American people is loud and clear: We are fed up with Washington and career politicians. We don't want business as usual. We want a leader who will fix our problems and not just talk about them. We want our nation secure, our economy growing, our rights defended, and our freedoms restored. We want our country back!", Arrington concluded.
Finally, Texas U.S. Senator John Cornyn said Trump will help America's economy, “I want to congratulate President-elect Trump on his remarkable victory after one of the most hard-fought elections in recent memory. As this election made clear, Texans and all Americans are understandably concerned for our country and the direction we’re headed.
“The threat posed by radical Islamic terrorism is real and growing, as Texans were reminded just this week. Obamacare continues to implode as Texas families face higher costs and fewer choices for coverage. And nearly eight years of President Obama’s draconian regulatory regime has suffocated job creators and hamstrung an underperforming economy.
"The American people have delivered a resounding message that they’re ready for change, and eager for Republicans to tackle the big challenges facing our nation. I look forward to working with President-elect Trump to address the critical issues Texans and the American people have entrusted us to solve," Cornyn said.
