“Scott Turner is a steadfast leader who will take to the Texas House the principles and values of his district’s strong conservative base,” said the president of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, Michael Quinn Sullivan. “Scott Turner can be counted on to oppose new tax burdens, fight to strengthen Texas’ economy, and put a tight leash on government spending. We are confident that he will continue the conservative leadership provided by Ken Paxton and Jodie Laubenberg, two of our highest-rated Taxpayer Champions.”

Scott Turner is seeking the Republican primary nomination in a new seat created by the growing population in Collin and Rockwall County. The district number has varied between the legislative and court drawn maps.

Sullivan continued: “Voters are looking for candidates like Scott Turner who will govern on the conservative values and principles that strengthen Texas’ families.”
