Kyle Biedermann, a former member of the Texas House, could be making a return.

On Wednesday, Biedermann announced his intention to run for House District 19, currently held by freshman State Rep. Ellen Troxclair (R–Lakeway).

First elected in 2016, Biedermann served for three sessions before announcing he would not seek re-election following redistricting in 2021. 

Biedermann says recent events in the Texas Capitol, however, have forced him to return:

In 2020, I made the tough decision to return to my family and my business, choosing not to run for re-election. Regrettably, our current representative has placed the interests of the Austin Swamp ahead of the constituents of District 19. 

I simply cannot sit on the sidelines and watch this happen. District 19 deserves a proven conservative representative who is not swayed by the insider politics of the Austin establishment but is invested in the well-being of Texans across our state and in our district. My platform includes building the wall to maintain our safety, abolishing the state property tax, and expanding parental rights in education.

In his last session in the House, Biedermann championed legislation relevant to legislative priorities of the Republican Party of Texas, including items seeking to protect monuments like the Alamo Cenotaph, as well as his own version of constitutional carry.

Troxclair told Texas Scorecard her record stands for itself.
“I passed the largest property tax cut in US history, funded the border wall, and protected children from gender-modification and pornographic content in schools,” said Troxclair. “I am now fully focused on the Special Session, and banning Covid vaccine mandates, passing a “remain in Mexico” policy to prevent illegal immigration, and ensuring parents have the ability to choose the best education for their children.”
“I have done more in one year to pass conservative priorities than my opponent ever did in his many years in office, and I won’t let his desperation for a State pension distract from my work to keep Texas strong, safe, and free.”
