State Rep. Ken Paxton’s statement last night:
“On the eve of tomorrow’s official vote for Speaker, I’m proud to have the support of my good friend Warren Chisum. He has waged a valiant and principled fight with honor and distinction.
Texans who provided us with our historic governing mandate should be embraced and welcomed into the process. They deserve openness and transparency – including a public vote – and that is why I will remain a candidate for Speaker on the floor of the Texas House.”
