Former Texas Governor Rick Perry has announced his endorsement of Dr. Glenn Rogers in the Texas House District 60 primary, according to a Monday news release from the Rogers campaign.
“Rural Texas needs strong rural leaders like Dr. Glenn Rogers to craft conservative policies that reduce the tax burden on property owners, encourage the creation of quality jobs, and prioritize our schools in order to provide a talented, local workforce,” Perry said in the release.
Rogers, a rancher and veterinarian, is running to replace Rep. Mike Lang, who is pursuing another office. Three others are in the race for the Republican line on the November ballot, with early voting beginning Feb. 18. Primary election day is March 3.
District 60 encompasses Brown, Callahan, Coleman, Eastland, Hood, Palo Pinto, Shackleford and Stephens counties.
