Americans for Prosperity Action Announces Support for Three Texas Candidates Dedicated to Advancing the American Dream

Press Release

DALLAS, TX—Americans for Prosperity Action (AFP Action) today announced its support for three candidates running for the U.S. House of Representatives in districts across Texas. These candidates, if elected, will champion policies to protect individual prosperity for all Texans, lead to ensure no government barriers stand in the way of the American dream, and drive solutions to tackle our country’s greatest challenges.

AFP Action’s electoral engagement is focused on electing leaders that will work to build broad-based policy coalitions to drive principled reforms. Today, the grassroots focused organization identified three Texas candidates that will work to achieve these goals if elected: Genevieve Collins (TX-32), Wesley Hunt (TX-07), and Rep. Chip Roy (TX-21.) AFP Action will use a range of tactics, including its signature grassroots, to urge voters to support these candidates for their principled advocacy of positive policy solutions to our nation’s greatest challenges.

AFP Action Senior Advisor Mack Morris issued the following statement:

“We are excited to throw our full support behind Rep. Chip Roy, Genevieve Collins, and Wesley Hunt in their bids for Congress. These candidates have made clear their commitment to improving the lives of all Texans by advocating for policies that improve access to quality, affordable health care, allow hard-working families to keep more of what they earn, and reduce red tape so small businesses can thrive.”

Genevieve Collins (TX-32)

Candidate Genevieve Collins is an experienced businesswoman that will bring innovation to public policy if elected to represent Texas’s 32nd Congressional District. While Collins has spent her career innovating the classroom so all Texas students can succeed, she is committed to supporting policies that bring that same innovative approach to health care and expand economic opportunity. Collins supports prioritizing government spending, reducing red tape for businesses to thrive, and expanding access to quality, affordable health care.

Wesley Hunt (TX-07)

Candidate Wesley Hunt’s leadership in the private sector and service to our country reflect in the legislative leadership we expect to see from him in Washington. Whether it be through ensuring access to quality, affordable health care, reducing red tape so more small businesses can thrive, fighting to lower taxes for hard-working Texans, or making sure government prioritizes spending and lives within its means, Hunt will show his commitment for positive and principled policy reforms if elected to represent Texas’s 7th Congressional District.

Rep. Chip Roy (TX-21)

Congressman Chip Roy has dedicated his first term in office to championing positive policy solutions to the challenges Texans face. In Washington Rep. Roy has continued to show leadership in prioritizing spending, improving access to quality, affordable health care, and championing better care for our veterans. Rep. Roy has time and again shown he is willing to stick his neck out for what’s right and will continue to do so if re-elected to Texas’s 21st Congressional District.
