Texans for Lawsuit Reform PAC today announced its endorsement of State Senator Ken Paxton for Attorney General.

Speaking for the TLRPAC Board, TLR co-Founder and CEO Richard W. Weekley said,

“Senator Paxton is a principled conservative who understands the importance of lawsuit reform in creating jobs and assuring access to doctors and health care throughout the state.  As a Member of the Texas House of Representatives and as a State Senator, Ken Paxton supported tort reforms leading to a fair and balanced civil justice system. Senator Paxton will be an attorney general who is committed to justice and fairness for every Texan and one who will stand up for the Tenth Amendment and the State of Texas against the unwarranted intrusions by the federal government.”

Paxton was first elected to the Texas House in 2003, representing part of Collin County. He was elected to the Texas Senate in 2012. He earned his bachelor’s degree at Baylor University and his law degree from the University of Virginia Law School.  He is currently a named partner in the law firm of Pittenger, Paxton, Nuspl, & Crumley.
