Voters in the Montgomery County area will be able to hear from gubernatorial candidate Don Huffines in person at an upcoming event. Huffines, who is challenging Governor Greg Abbott in the 2022 Republican primary election, will be speaking at the Montgomery County Tea Party PAC on October 18.
Huffines is a Dallas area businessman and real estate developer. He is a longtime conservative activist and close ally of U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY). Huffines ran successfully for the Texas State Senate in 2014 where he served for one term, earning one of the most conservative voting records of any member in the upper chamber. Huffines was defeated for re-election by a Democrat in the 2018 blue wave election when Dallas County went hard left.
Huffines is running against Abbott because he believes the current governor has failed to deliver on conservative policy priorities. His campaign has focused on securing the border, election integrity, and eliminating property taxes. Montgomery County has the highest Republican voting percentage of all the major counties in Texas. Political scientists consider it to be one of four major GOP counties that propelled a little-known Texas solicitor general named Ted Cruz into the runoff for U.S. Senate against former Lt. Governor David Dewhurst.
Huffines has only made one other public appearance in Montgomery County since declaring his candidacy for governor. He spoke at Christian Collins’ Texas Youth Summit in The Woodlands back in September, where he discussed everything from the unfolding disaster at the border to UFOs.
The Montgomery County Tea Party PAC meeting, which will be at Citizen’s Grill on 1488, will be an excellent opportunity for voters to learn more about Mr. Huffines and visit with him directly.
