I’m proud to endorse Nelson Jarrin for State Representative. He’s a conservative fighter the people of #HD52 can trust to keep taxes low, protect life, improve our schools, and keep our community safe. I’m honored to call Nelson a friend and I plan to do everything I can to make sure he’s successful. ... See MoreSee Less

Well, if you’re endorsing him, I’ll be certain not to vote for him.

What does "plan to do everything I can to make sure he's successful" mean, exactly?

Thanks for reminding me my taxes are low . 👍👍

Thanks for letting the rest of us know who not to vote for...

Maybe he’ll actually represent us instead of fleeing to Washington. I already have a representative there Mr. Talarico.

An endorsement coming from you ain't a good sign.

You going to teach him how to send dick picks without ramifications?

Audit Texas!!!

Well, of the three Republicans running for the seat, he certainly seems the least disgusting. Given that Caroline Harris is a full-tilt believer in the Big Stolen Election Lie and Tjistse Miller is a huge fan of Allen "fascist and Florida carpetbagger" West, he really is the least objectionable choice. Still, though, I'd rather have Talarico, since he cares about preserving voters' rights and knows "voter fraud" is a GQP sham.
