Retired Navy SEAL and small business owner Morgan Luttrell has picked up a major law enforcement endorsement of his campaign for Texas’ 8th Congressional District. In a press release, the Luttrell campaign announced the backing of the Texas Fraternal Order of Police, one of the largest law enforcement organizations in the state.
“I am proud to announce the Texas Fraternal Order of Police’s enthusiastic support of Morgan Luttrell for Congress. We applaud Morgan’s staunch criticism of efforts by anti-police extremists to defund law enforcement and his record of leadership and service to our country,” said TFOP President Karla Pruneda. “A former Navy SEAL, Morgan knows firsthand the dangers our law enforcement officers face every day to serve and protect Texas families. The Texas Fraternal Order of Police knows Morgan will stand up in Congress for the issues important to police officers and work tirelessly to enact legislation to keep violent criminals off our streets and our communities safe.”
The Texas Fraternal Order of Police has been operating for over 26 years and has lodges across the state. They advocate for higher wages, benefits, and better working conditions for officers, and lobby state and national policy-makers on a number of issues relating to law enforcement and public safety.
“I am humbled and honored to receive the endorsement of such a distinguished organization as the Texas Fraternal Order of Police. The attack on law enforcement across our country is intolerable,” Luttrell said. “As your Congressman, I will work tirelessly to defend our brave men and women who serve and protect our families every single day.”
Luttrell has received support among local law enforcement as well. He was recently endorsed by Montgomery County Precinct 1 Constable Philip Cash.
A native of norther Montgomery County, Luttrell is a graduate of Willis High School and Sam Houston State University. After an honorable 14 year career as a Navy SEAL, Luttrell devoted himself to helping other veterans overcome PTSD. He served in the Trump Administration under Secretary of Energy Rick Perry.
Following the news that longtime CD-08 Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX) would be retiring at the end of this term, Luttrell announced he would seek the seat, which is based in the suburbs north and west of Houston. He is in the top tier of candidates in a crowded Republican primary. The winner of the GOP primary will almost certainly represent this deep red district.
