TX Railroad Commissioner To Run For Senate, In W.F. Today

SAN ANTONIO- Texas Railroad Commissioner Elizabeth Ames Jones will embark on a 14-city statewide announcement tour beginning Tuesday, January 25 and ending on Friday, January 28.

"I am running for Senate because our federal government is out of control," said Jones. "We have to rein in out-of-control spending and debt, ban wasteful pork and earmarks, secure our borders and get government off the backs of businesses so they can grow and create desperately-needed jobs.

"Now is not the time to compromise our conservative Texas values," Jones continued. "Just as I have in the Texas House and on the Railroad Commission, I will stand up and fight for Texas families, Texas jobs and Texas values."

Thursday she'll be at Midwestern State University at 5:30 p.m. in the Clark Student Center.
