Houston, TX – Thursday, April 19, 2018 – On Thursday, the federal campaign arm of the Texas Association of Business, TXBIZ FEDPAC, announced their decision to back Kevin Roberts in his campaign for the 2nd Congressional District of Texas. Roberts is a long-time business owner and as a State Legislator championed issues that are important to growing the Texas economy and supporting expansion of businesses.
In announcing their endorsement, TXBIX FEDPAC released the following statement: “The people of Texas have thrived and enjoyed the strongest economic growth in the nation due to our state’s commitment to limited government principles and pro-growth policies. Kevin Roberts helped make sure the Texas economy continues to expand, deliver more job opportunities for our hardworking families, and remains an environment where businesses can prosper. We are proud to endorse Kevin Roberts because Congress is in desperate need of more Representatives who have a proven commitment to sustainable growth, more freedom, and less government intervention.”
“As a longtime small businessman, it is an honor to be recognized for my work to produce economic opportunity for all Texans,” said Kevin Roberts. “As a State Representative, I fought to reduce regulations and make government more transparent here in Texas. I intend to be a champion in Congress for getting the government out of our lives, passing pro-growth solutions, and empowering businesses to expand.”
Upon the conclusion of the 85th Legislative Session, the Texas Association of Business named Roberts a “Fighter for Free Enterprise” for his voting record and legislative achievements, including passage of the state’s new “one-on-one-off” regulatory reform bill.
