Press Release: Today conservative State Representative Pat Fallon (R-Frisco), a conservative leader in the Texas House endorsed former U.S. Attorney and conservative Republican candidate for Texas’ 4th congressional district John Ratcliffe. State Rep. Fallon joins pro-life leader State Rep. Jodie Laubenberg (R-Parker) as the two legislators who have endorsed Ratcliffe over 17-term incumbent U.S. Rep. Ralph Hall (R-TX).
“It’s my pleasure to stand with fellow Constitutional conservative John Ratcliffe for U.S. Congress in Texas’ Fourth District,” said Rep. Fallon. “I believe John will not only represent his constituents with enthusiasm and honor, but he’ll be a strong, passionate, and prominent voice for Texans in Washington. I’m confident John will do everything in his power to actively combat the Obama administration’s federal overreach. With John’s extensive legal experience, he is the perfect choice to represent Texas’ Fourth District and protect our Constitution.”
“I am honored to have the support of a respected conservative leader like State Rep. Pat Fallon in this runoff,” said Ratcliffe. “Rep. Fallon and I share a deep commitment to protecting the Constitution and fighting for liberty.”
Ratcliffe and Congressman Hall will face off in a May 27 primary runoff.
To date, Ratcliffe has been endorsed by the Club for Growth, the Senate Conservatives Fund, the Madison Project, and Erick Erickson of the conservative national blog Red State.
Ratcliffe is the former Mayor of Heath, TX and the former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Texas.
