Texans for Lawsuit Reform PAC Endorses Brandon Creighton for Texas Senate
AUSTIN – Texans for Lawsuit Reform (TLR) has joined the list of conservative organizations that have endorsed Brandon Creighton for Senate District 4. Creighton has declared his intention to seek the Senate District 4 seat currently held by Tommy Williams, who has stated he will resign from the Texas Senate before the 2015 legislative session.
“Brandon Creighton has been a strong and committed advocate for lawsuit reform in the Texas House,” TLR PAC Board President Richard J. Trabulsi, Jr., said. “He was the author of House Bill 274, Governor Rick Perry’s Omnibus Tort Reform Bill of 2011, which is exceptionally impactful legislation reforming our civil justice system. His leadership on that legislation and his chairmanship of the Republican House Caucus have helped assure that the conservative and job-creating policies that have made the Texas economy the strongest in the nation remain in place. TLR PAC is proud to endorse him.”
TLR PAC is the political arm of Texans for Lawsuit Reform, the state’s largest civil justice reform organization. TLR is a bipartisan, volunteer-led coalition with more than 18,000 supporters residing in 869 Texas communities and representing 1,266 different businesses, professions and trades.
“I am especially proud to have the endorsement of Texans for Lawsuit Reform,” Creighton said. “Their work in the legislature has changed the entire civil justice system in Texas, saving taxpayers millions and protecting Texas businesses from thousands of frivolous lawsuits, allowing us to continue to be the example of job creation for the nation.”
Creighton, consistently ranked as one of the most conservative Texas House members, began representing District 16 in 2007. He received national acclaim for defending Texas’ sovereignty and for passing landmark tort reform legislation. He has been a constant champion for 2nd Amendment rights and for protecting the sanctity of human life. He has focused on keeping Texas the top job-creating state by voting for and supporting free-market principles that make this state the economic engine of nation. Elected by his peers as Republican Caucus Chairman in 2013, Creighton led the Caucus in preventing Medicaid expansion in Texas, and the conservative web site RedState recently described him as, “The Man Who Kept Obamacare Out of Texas.”
