AUSTIN, TEXAS – Representative Matt Krause has announced that he will forgo seeking a sixth term as state representative in pursuit of becoming the next Attorney General for the State of Texas.

“It is important now more than ever that we have an Attorney General that will fight to protect Texas. As a founding member of the Texas Freedom Caucus, I have been on the front lines against the left’s radical agenda from creeping into Texas. As your Attorney General, I will continue to fight to keep critical race theory out of our schools, protect Texas families from the crisis at our southern border, and stand proudly with our men and women in law enforcement.”
The campaign will be hosting a Telephone Town Hall today at 3:15PM CST, Matt will be taking questions from citizens across the state. Admission to the call can be accessed by dialing in to the listen only line: (540)-409-4375 Ext.76055#
