Primaries for the office of county clerk usually don’t draw high-profile endorsements. However, Brandon Steinmann, who is running for county clerk in Montgomery County, can now tout a pretty big-name endorser: former governor Rick Perry.
Steinmann worked for Perry for seven years, and apparently the governor approved of the job he did:
“Brandon is a proven conservative and has been a hard-working public servant his entire life,” said Perry. “Brandon led my efforts to protect Texas from burdensome federal regulatory attacks on our energy sector and increased taxation on our State’s citizens in Washington D.C. and worked tirelessly with our state and local officials during the devastation of Hurricanes Rita and Ike. I know that Brandon’s passion for service, his extensive work experience, and conservative Christian values will make him a great County Clerk for Montgomery County. He has my endorsement and my highest recommendation to the voters of Montgomery County.”
“As governor, Rick Perry was an amazing conservative leader who transformed Texas into the number one place to live, work, and relocate your business,” said Steinmann. “It was an honor to work for him for seven years, and it is an even bigger honor that he thought enough of my work ethic and conservative bonafides to endorse me in this race.”
Steinmann has also been endorsed by a number of organizations, including Texas Right to Life, Texas Values, and the Republican Voters of Texas PAC. He received the highest score in his race from the vetting committee of the Montgomery County Tea Party.
