“I’m honored to accept Site Selection Governor’s Cup on behalf of the people of Texas,” Governor Abbott said. “It’s no surprise Texas is again named the top state for the most new and expanded corporate facilities – this is the third year in a row Texas ranked #1 and the sixth time in the last 11 years. Unleashing the power of entrepreneurs and innovators and securing Texans’ freedom to aspire is the model of success for Texas, and I’m confident Texas will continue to lead the nation.”

Having faithfully served as the Party’s Treasurer for many years, Tom will not only strengthen the Party, but he will help continue the momentum of our state’s Republican victories and preserve the very values that have made Texas the greatest state in the nation to live, work and raise a family. I look forward to working with Chairman Mechler and the rest of the Republican Party of Texas to ensure the future of our beloved state is even bigger, better and brighter than ever before.”

"According to an ABCNews/Beliefnet Poll 83 percent of Americans identify themselves as Christians. So to this end, it makes perfect sense for us to get Christians engaged, empowered, informed, and excited about the process of choosing those who govern on the local, state, and federal levels in America. So don't forget about what Proverbs 29:2 teaches us: "When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn." -- AUBREY
