State Representative Raul Torres, R-Nueces, today filed his apllication to run for State Senate District 20, currently held by Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa, D-McAllen. Senate District 20 stretches from Nueces to Hidalgo and also includes Brooks as well and Jim Wells counties.
"Today, I filed to run for State Senate District 20 to make sure the hard working families of South Texas and the Coastal Bend have their voice heard in the State Senate," said Torres after submitting his application to appear on the Republican Primary ballot.
Torres' Senate campaign along with Representative J. M. Lozano's switch to the Republican Party indicates that Hispanics are a growing force within the Republican Party. Torres added, "Hispanics will decide the upcoming election and their growing numbers in the Republican Party reflect our shared values
and desire to secure a better future for all our families. It's also why I'm proud to have been endorsed by the Hispanic Republicans of Texas, a group dedicated to making sure Hispanic Republican candidates and elected officials are successful, giving them a real voice in the Party."
"I'm encouraged and humbled by the support I've received from Democrats, Republicans and Independents to run for Senate District 20. They support my plan to create jobs, improve our children's schools, end waste in government and stop higher taxes," commented Torres.
Raul Torres currently represents House District 33 in Nueces County. "This election is about ensuring the voice of the people is heard in Austin and its about returning the government back to the people," said Torres.
