Endorsements

“… West… is a seasoned state legislator who has spent a career getting things done in the minority party for this region and state.

The breadth of West’s understanding about matters concerning state policy is hard to match and would easily translate at the national level. He has had a hand in education, health and human services, criminal justice and more. He has demonstrated over time a preference for progress over political struggle. 

 

West is not given to windy speeches or political sloganeering, as his recent answers to us in our questionnaire and candidate interview demonstrated. But what he says makes it clear he has command of the issues and a strategy for policy that would advance his party’s agenda in achievable ways.”

 

“One candidate stands out in terms of proven legislative ability and a chance to unseat three-term incumbent John Cornyn, if things break the party’s way: state Sen. Royce West. 

 

[West] has represented southern Dallas County for 27 years, building a reputation as a serious center-left legislator. As he notes, Republicans have controlled the Texas Senate for nearly his entire career, so to be effective, West has developed a knack for bipartisanship that would serve him well in Washington.”
