Dan Branch Endorses Morgan Meyer

The Morning News ran an editorial today endorsing Morgan Meyer over Chart Westcott for District 108. I guess that kinda matters. You know what really matters? Dan Branch’s endorsement. Especially when he says that he didn’t really want to get involved but he just had to because the other guy is a joke. Westcott really screwed the pooch on this one. Here’s the statement from Branch:

(Dallas May 23, 2014) State Representative Dan Branch, who has served District 108 more than 12 years, today endorsed Republican Morgan Meyer to succeed him.

“In this race, I admire both men and their families. It was always my intention to stay neutral, but this week a line was crossed,” said Representative Dan Branch.

“Morgan Meyer will honorably serve our state, putting first the needs of our district and not those of outside special interests. I’m proud to endorse Morgan Meyer because he has the judgment, insight and temperament that our communities need,” Branch continued.

Dan Branch is not seeking re-election, and is currently in a run-off election for the GOP nomination for Texas Attorney General.

“I’m honored to have Representative Branch’s support. For more than a decade, Dan has provided strong leadership focused on the issues that matter to our families. He’s been an advocate for smaller government and less spending, and he’s become a respected leader on school finance reform and higher education. If elected, I’ll work hard to continue his legacy of serving our families, our community and our great state,” said Morgan Meyer.
