Gun Owners of America is gearing up to hit the road, hosting eight rallies in three days for a series of their endorsed candidates in the upcoming runoff elections. 

The Silver Bullet Bus Tour, which kicks off in Burleson on Wednesday morning, will travel through the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex before heading to southeast Texas and finishing in the San Antonio area.

Wes Virdell, the Gun Owners of America Texas Director and the Republican candidate for Texas House District 53, says the opportunity to meet candidates in person is essential to voters making the best decisions.

“It’s not just a bus ride; it’s a mission to safeguard our Second Amendment rights and uphold the Texas values we cherish,” said Virdell. 

The GOA team will be joined by a team of other House candidates, including Shelley Luther, Mitch Little, and Mike Olcott, as well as State Reps. Brian Harrison (R–Midlothian), Nate Schatzline (R–Fort Worth), and Tony Tinderholt (R–Arlington). 

“The significance of this tour lies in the unwavering commitment of all the GOA endorsed candidates to the Second Amendment,” said Virdell. “They are not just names on a ballot but champions of our constitutional rights, defenders of our liberties, and guardians of our heritage.”
