Chairman of Texas House Freedom Caucus Endorses Luttrell

Texas State Representative Mayes Middleton (R-Wallisville), Chairman of the Texas House Freedom Caucus, is backing Morgan Luttrell in the race for Texas’ 8th Congressional District.

The Texas House Freedom Caucus, which is a group of about a dozen of the most conservative members in the Texas House, is not to be confused with the House Freedom Caucus, which operates in the U.S. Congress. However, the Texas House Freedom Caucus was inspired by the original national version and serves a similar function in the state legislature that the House Freedom Caucus serves in Congress.

“Morgan Luttrell knows that Freedom isn’t free, he served our nation in combat defending our God given freedoms,” said Middleton. “Now we need him in the fight to defend those same God given freedoms from the radical left and Joe Biden. He will be a champion of conservative values in Congress and I’m proud to endorse him.”

Middleton, a native of Chambers County in southeast Texas, was elected to the Texas House in 2018. He was very active in the conservative movement for years prior to running for office, and is among the most conservative members of the Texas House. However, Middleton is giving up his House seat to run for an open Texas State Senate seat in the 2022 Republican Primary. Middleton is being backed strongly by Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, who also happens to be supporting Luttrell.

Luttrell is a retired Navy SEAL and businessman with deep roots in the Willis area. He served in the Trump administration under Energy Secretary Rick Perry and is one of the top contenders to replace retiring Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX) in the 8th District.
