AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement endorsing Justice Don Willett for re-election to the Texas Supreme Court:
I am proud to announce my endorsement of Justice Don Willett for re-election to the Texas Supreme Court. Justice Willett's impeccable conservative record makes him the right choice for Texans who cherish our God-given rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Justice Willett, one of our Supreme Court's most conservative justices, understands his allegiance is to the Constitution -- period. His conservative legal philosophy has even been hailed nationally as the judicial antidote to Obamacare. Justice Willett's strict-constructionist record on the Court is sterling; he has never legislated from the bench, and he never will. As Justice Willett says, “We must never forget our Nation is founded on We the People, not We the Judges, We the Politicians, or We the Subjects.”
Like me, Justice Willett has small town Texas roots. He grew up in a doublewide trailer in a tiny town of 32 people, raised by a widowed mother who waited tables at the local truck stop. Like so many Texans, her strong character and work ethic instilled in Don a deep devotion to service that has greatly enriched our Lone Star State.
In these challenging times, a conservative judiciary is vital to protecting our liberty. Texas could not have a finer conservative champion on its Supreme Court than Justice Don Willett.
HUGE endorsement today: State Senator Dan Patrick from Harris County! Senator Patrick is a true conservative champion, and among the Lone Star State's most powerful political influencers. I'm deeply honored to have his unswerving support! Please click SHARE to spread this important news.
I was thrilled to address 150 conservative patriots this weekend ... from my boyhood neck of the woods (in fact, 1/2 mile from where I grew up in a humble doublewide). Fired-up grassroots activists from Kaufman, Rockwall, Van Zandt and other NE Texas counties -- all committed to principled conservatism, including a constitutionalist judiciary.
Honored to have the strong endorsement of the Texas Municipal Police Association -- "the voice for Texas law enforcement" -- representing over 19,000 peace officers and public-safety employees across the Lone Star State! www.tmpa.org
