Springer Announces Bid for Senate Early Voting (Special Election) 9/14
Rep. Drew Springer (TX-District 68) hosted a last-minute town hall meeting at Olney Heritage Museum Saturday Aug. 28 to announce his bid for Texas Senate. Springer encouraged everyone to vote in the special election early. Early voting begins Sept. 14 for the Sept. 29 Special Election.
Although the paper was not notified about the town hall until the day before, there were more than 50 supporters in attendance. Springer briefly shared his purpose for campaigning for senator.
“After much encouragement, I am excited to announce my bid for the Texas Senate. Texas is under attack from the liberal left, and we must stand up to keep Texas the state we all know and love. I will continue to fight for our values in the Texas Senate,” Springer released in a statement.
In addition to the supporters who rallied for Springer at the town hall, more than 50 state rep resentatives, including Pat Fallon, have publicly acknowledged their support for Springer according to a press release.
“Drew Springer will make an excellent addition to the Texas Senate. He has been a champion for the people of House District 68, and he will continue to fight for conservative principles for the great citizens of Senate District 30,” Fallon said.
According to a recent release, Springer was raised, educated, and works in Senate District 30. The release states, “as a Christian and lifelong conservative who fights to preserve traditional Texas values, promote economic development, works to end excessive regulations that stifle business, and champions pro-life legislation.”
Raised in Parker County and inducted in the Weather High School Hall of Fame, Springer remained in Texas to pursue a bachelor’s degree in accounting. After graduation, he spent approximately 15 years working in his field before advancing to president responsible for three divisions at a railcar company.
While working for his father’s financial services business in Parker County, Sprinter had an opportunity to specialize in agricultural managed futures for more than a decade.
Springer and his wife, Lydia, have been married for 29 years and reside in Cooke County. They have three children, a daughterin-law and one grandson.
