State Representative Steve Toth (R-Conroe) has recently received a boost in his campaign for re-election. U.S. Senator Ted Cruz announced he is backing the incumbent for re-election in the safely Republican House District 15 encompassing southern Montgomery County.
“Steve Toth is a proven fighter who has been on the frontlines pushing back against Biden’s radical agenda in Texas. We need more representatives like Steve who are taking on the D.C. swamp at the state level. Steve’s been with us in critical fights to keep Texas Red before, now I ask my fellow Texans to support Steve Toth’s re-election to the Texas House.”
Among the most conservative members of the Texas House, Toth ranks in the top ten, if not top five, of most conservative scorecards. He was the author of the Critical Race Theory ban passed by the legislature last year.
Toth is being challenged by attorney and scion of The Woodlands royalty, Maris Blair. Blair is the executive director of the Conroe ISD Education Foundation.
Although he did not explicitly endorse Toth, former president Donald Trump had nice words for the state legislator at his recent rally, praising him for filing a bill to audit the election results in Texas’ largest counties. “Steve, he’s a big guy for stopping the election fraud,” said Trump. Despite vocal support from Trump, the bill did not pass the Texas House.
Toth has long been a supporter of Texas’ junior senator. During Toth’s first run for state house in 2012, he supported Cruz against then-Lt. Governor David Dewhurst and even campaigned for him in the early voting parking lot.
