Outgoing Congressman Mac Thornberry took to YouTube at the end of last week to post a brief farewell video for his constituents in the Texas 13th Congressional District.

In reflecting on his time in office, Congressman Thornberry said the best part of being a Congressman was seeing "...first-hand those who are dedicated to serving others. I've seen it in every one of our communities and I've seen it with the men and women in the military and their families." Using his farewell video, Congressman Thornberry praised the members of the U.S. military for their service.

"The future of America rests where it always has, with us; with the choices each of us make everyday. Let's make choices that we, and future Americans, can look back on with pride, and are worthy of the greatest country in the history of the world," Thornberry said.

Texas' 13th Congressional District will be represented by Dr. Ronny Jackson starting on January 2nd, 2021.

Congressman Thornberry has represented Texas 13 for the past 26 years.
