2022 Republican Primary and Runoff Election Endorsements
We are proud to announce our endorsements for the races in this election cycle.
PRIMARY ELECTION – MARCH 1, 2022
US Congressional Races
Nathaniel Moran - Texas Congressional District 1
Grassroots America confidently and strongly endorses Republican Nathaniel Moran for Congress in the race for US Representative, Congressional District 1.
CD 1 -- Show More
Replacing consistently strong conservative Louie Gohmert in Congress is a tall order – a critically serious matter – given the unstable state of our nation and the restoration of liberty that will be necessary once Republicans regain a majority.
We looked for a proven conservative – someone with a record of stable, steady, dependable, moral leadership in good times and bad. We looked for a consistent, active defender of religious liberty, the sanctity of all human life, gun rights, traditional family values, and individual liberty. We find Nathaniel Moran’s record demonstrates that he consistently holds these values. He is also a strong supporter of President Trump’s border security, immigration, and America First policies. He is dedicated to the proper funding and equipping of law enforcement and border security. There is no doubt that he will also work to restore the rule of law, our military readiness, and vital support for veterans.
Nathaniel Moran’s record as a fiscal conservative is proven in his outstanding service as County Judge for Smith County. We know Nathaniel Moran to be a humble man of virtue and a listener, but we are also confident he will not bend to political pressures from the Swamp. Nathaniel Moran doesn’t just profess to be a conservative. His record proves he is a conservative. Please join us in supporting Nathaniel Moran to represent conservative East Texas.
Keith Self - Texas Congressional District 3
We confidently and strongly endorse Keith Self for Congress to replace incumbent Van Taylor as the US Representative for TX Congressional District 3.
CD 3 -- Show More
Dan Thomas - Texas Congressional District 4
JoAnn Fleming, Executive Director: “We endorse Dan Thomas in his challenge to incumbent Pat Fallon because the values of Dan Thomas more closely align with those of everyday Texans.
CD 4 -- Show More
Due to the COVID vaccine mandate, Dan lost his job as the evening anchor for a North TX Fox and CBS station – even though his own doctor advised against the shot! With his family’s financial security under attack, Dan has stepped up to enter the fight against tyranny. A political outsider, Dan has the courage to take on the assaults against our individual liberty, the sovereignty of Texas, our Judeo-Christian values, and the Constitution. Dan will put his constituents and America First.
“Additionally, unlike 1st term Congressman Pat Fallon, Dan Thomas would never vote to require women to sign up for the draft. Unlike Fallon, Dan Thomas won’t find himself under scrutiny for alleged violations of the 2013 STOCK Act, a law to prevent insider trading by Congressional lawmakers. Fallon’s late disclosures of stock trades worth between $7.8 million – $17.53 million (first reported by Business Insider) cite his purchase of between $300,000 – $750,000 worth of stock in Boeing, the aviation and defense contracting giant. Fallon is a member of the House Armed Services Committee, which has long provided oversight of such government defense contractors.
“We urge support for Dan Thomas for Congress – a regular guy with our values who will fight for us, not enrich himself while in DC.”
Mark Ramsey - Texas Congressional District 38
JoAnn Fleming, Executive Director: “Grassroots America confidently and strongly endorses Mark Ramsey for US Rep. TX Congressional District 38.
CD 38 -- Show More
We looked for a proven conservative – someone with a record of stable, steady, dependable, moral leadership in good times and bad. We looked for a consistent, active defender of religious liberty, the sanctity of all human life, gun rights, traditional family values, and individual liberty. Mark’s long record of laboring in the conservative trenches with us proves that he unfailingly holds these values. Mark is a strong supporter of President Trump’s border security, immigration, and America First policies. Mark is dedicated to the proper funding and equipping of our military and border security officers. There is no doubt that he will also work to restore the rule of law, our military readiness, and vital support for veterans. Don’t take a chance! Mark Ramsey’s record PROVES he is a conservative. Please send Conservative Champion Mark Ramsey to fight for Texas in DC!”
Allen West - Texas Governor
Texas needs a principled, strategic disrupter – a bold painter to write freedom on the hearts of Texans – all Texans – in a language they can understand. Therefore, we confidently and heartily endorse LTC Allen West (RET) for Texas Governor.
Gov -- Show More
Allen West is the proven, battle-tested warrior Texas needs to fix the mess Greg Abbott has made of our state and defend her from DC tyrants. Unlike Abbott, Allen West would never sign into law an election “integrity” bill that ignores the high risk of hacking but lowers criminal penalties for voter fraud from a 2nd Degree Felony to a Class A Misdemeanor and authorizes political parties to send out unsolicited mail ballot applications. Unlike Abbott, West will not use our tax dollars to welcome in corporate cultural wolves that savage families and Texas values with Woke-ism. Unlike Abbott, West will not be silent while vaccine mandates trample liberty. Unlike Abbott, West will not pretend to build a border wall while politically abusing our Texas Military and Texas National Guard for a very expensive, poorly planned political stunt. Unlike Abbott, Allen West will not allow illegal border crossings to surge, increasing suffering for citizens, soldiers, and law enforcement. Unlike Abbott, West will not play “catch and release” while crime, drugs, sex trafficking, and cheap labor trafficking soar. Unlike Abbott, West will not continue with AOC Green energy policies that endanger our power grid. Unlike Abbott, West will not continue to dump escalating funds into an educational system permeated with Leftist ideology that corrupts and breaks children. Unlike Abbott, West will not ignore the demand to end sex change butchery and chemical destruction of children – a legislative priority supported by 94.65% of 2020 GOP Primary voters. Unlike Abbott, West will not abuse emergency executive authority to close churches, crush small businesses while favoring Big Business, separate families from loved ones in nursing homes, kill jobs, ration health care, and ignore doctors who know how to save lives. Unlike Abbott, Allen West will welcome the chance to sign an Abolish Abortion bill. Unlike Abbott, Allen West will work hard to eliminate property taxes. Unlike Abbott, Allen West will put Texas first. A proven commander, known for putting his men’s lives first, we are confident that LTC Allen West will rip the “For Sale” sign off our state capitol and lead with the heart of a lion to save Texas.

Bradford & Miller - Texas Lieutenant Governor
JoAnn Fleming, Executive Director, Board of Directors: “Up front, this endorsement is NOT about secession. The purpose of this dual endorsement is to emphasize that two very strong, principled, longtime grassroots leaders are imminently more capable of saving Texas from Leftist Wolves, Rinos, and DC than is incumbent Dan Patrick. Period.
Lt Gov -- Show More
Voters are frustrated! For nearly 20 years, Republicans have had trifecta control of the law-making process in our Legislature – meaning that Republicans have held the reins of power in the Offices of Governor and Lt. Governor as well as in majorities in both the state senate and the state House (with a Republican Speaker). Yet session after session, the majority of critical Republican Party priorities determined by GOP Primary voters and TX GOP State Convention grassroots delegates fail to pass or are watered-down versions trumpeted as evidence of “the most conservative session ever.” Case in point – no secure border, no end to handouts for illegals, no labor law enforcement to punish illegal hiring, no end to in-state tuition for illegals, no end to property taxes/no real tax cuts, no deterrence to electronic hacking of elections (but reduced voter fraud penalties from a 2nd Degree Felony down to a Class A Misdemeanor), no ban on taxpayer-funded lobbying, no ban on sex change mutilations/chemical sterilization of children, no abolish abortion, no protection of historical monuments, no ban on “emergency orders” that trample individual liberty – and Texas is STILL the #2 State in the nation for human trafficking – cheap labor and rape for profit!
These jaw-dropping failures to respond to Texans can only be laid at the feet of the top executives – the Governor, Lt. Governor, and the Speaker. Evidence? The fast-tracking of their pet, special interest legislation that has absolutely nothing to do with the priorities of the people.
It is therefore way past time for sweeping new leadership, time to elect patriots that are pledged to the principles of Liberty and are publicly and explicitly committed to executing the Party’s priorities – full strength. We therefore strongly endorse both Trayce Bradford and Daniel Miller for the Office of Lieutenant Governor. Both are subject matter experts on issues that are important to saving Texas from the rabid Left and from the rampant establishment cronyism that makes government officials (in both parties) and lobbyists wealthy while making life harder for families and owners of small businesses.
Trayce Bradford and Daniel Miller are known and respected for their tireless work to save Texas and their unwavering commitment to Liberty Principles, and constitutional conservatism – all while employing a Christian worldview.
Trayce Bradford for Lt. Governor is Eagle Forum’s National Issues Chair on Human Trafficking and has also served as President of Texas Eagle Forum and Dallas Eagle Forum. Trayce has worked tirelessly (unpaid) the last six legislative sessions in Austin with legislators and grassroots activists, testifying on the evils of labor and sex trafficking that come from an unsecure border and a vulgar growing market for human slavery and porn. She has long fought to end radical indoctrination of school children while fighting for pro-life and religious liberty legislation, for banning sex change procedures in children, for marriage as defined by God, for banning the use of foreign laws in American Courts, and for securing our Texas Electric Grid. Between legislative sessions, Trayce speaks out on these issues as well as warning about Big Government-fed cultural and fiscal attacks on Texas families. Her deep Christian faith, integrity, organizational skills, practical experience as an educator and public policy advisor to legendary conservative Eagle Forum, and her many years of working with the legislature and statewide officials have well-prepared Trayce for the Office of Lt. Governor.
Best known for TEXIT, Daniel Miller is no one-trick pony. He is particularly an outspoken proponent of eliminating property taxes and exhibits a deep knowledge on a wide array of legislative and public policy issues. He understands accounting gimmicks employed to balance the state budget, the growing state debt, and how and why the state budget is purposefully convoluted. Daniel has practical solutions on how to push for real cuts in state spending by eliminating overlapping, duplicated state departments, agencies, and programs and by conducting a “core function” test on state government to stop spending on programs and corporate welfare not defined in our state constitution. Daniel Miller has a solid working knowledge on Cultural Marxism, the dangers of social emotional learning pushed in public schools, the dangers to parental rights and children posed by state mental health policies, our unsecured border, legislative failures on election integrity and ballot security, imperiled states’ rights, how AOC green energy is at work in Texas, and the dangers to liberty from government overreach coming from the Governor’s Office and Washington DC.
Both Daniel and Trayce are passionate defenders of Liberty, are tireless in their pursuit of Republican Party priorities, and are subject matter experts in multiple areas critical to sustaining the growth and prosperity of Texas. Because both can read the signs of the times, the evil at work, and because they both deeply believe Texas should be leading in Liberty, Texas would be far safer in their hands.”
Louie Gohmert - Texas Attorney General
AttGen -- Show More
“There is no dark rock Louie Gohmert will not overturn to expose the underbelly of human trafficking – the sellers and the wicked buyers – who have made Texas #2 in the nation in cheap labor trafficking and rape for profit! And should a TX Governor move to enact unconstitutional executive powers – shutting down small businesses, churches, and schools and separating families from loved ones in nursing homes – you can count on Louie Gohmert to go to that Governor with a warning to stop. And if that Governor refuses to listen, you can be SURE that Louie Gohmert will fight that Governor to save you from tyranny!
“Long recognized as one of the most conservative members of Congress, Louie has strongly represented TX Congressional District 1 in DC since 2005. Louie kept his promises and never shirked from a fight – even when he had to stand alone. Because of his bold honesty, the American people know much more about the inner workings of Washington DC because Louie Gohmert always refused to cover up for deceptive, swampy Big Government Republicans like John Boehner and Paul Ryan – who as US House Speakers – worked with Democrats to keep our lawless southern border open, enabled human smuggling and rape for profit, added to the escalating federal debt, grew the federal government, and championed spying on American citizens.
“Louie stood with Trump to secure the border and push forward on America First policies when others jeered from the cheap seats. As Attorney General, Louie will stand up to Biden, Pelosi, and the radical Left’s assault on Texas. You can be sure he will stand up to Big Government Republicans and the Austin Sewer too. Vote for the political establishment’s worst nightmare – vote for Liberty Defender Louie Gohmert for Texas Attorney General.
Dr. Tim Westley - Texas Land Commissioner
JoAnn Fleming, Executive Director, Board of Directors: “We strongly endorse Dr. Tim Westley for Texas Land Commissioner.
LandComm -- Show More
Dr. Westley is the candidate you can trust to advance truly conservative and godly values that are so desperately needed in this state. As historian for the TX Republican Party, he stood strong to protect the Alamo and its Cenotaph. He has no ties to the professional ruling class and the fundraising complex that play conservative to raise millions but produce no results. Mismanaged under the current commissioner, this office needs Dr. Westley’s intellect, demeanor, and character to better serve our veterans, manage the Permanent School Fund, protect state territory from China and save our historical treasures.”
Dr. Jon Spiers - Texas Land Commissioner
JoAnn Fleming, Executive Director, Board of Directors: “We strongly and enthusiastically endorse Dr. Jon Spiers for Texas Land Commissioner
LandComm -- Show More
The General Land Office is a sprawling, multi-discipline organization that requires a top executive with proven ability to master complex issues, implement fiscal disciplines, and bring solutions based on Liberty Principles. Dr. Spiers was a cardiac surgeon. When an accident cut short that career, he went back to school and earned a law degree. He now heads up the Spiers Group law firm.
Jon is an Army veteran and still volunteers to help our veterans. As an Attorney, Dr. Spiers learned about oil and gas law and environmental law – though not required – very important knowledge for this job. Jon is also an entrepreneur with an obvious strong work ethic. He used his legal and medical expertise to build companies in Texas, including a biomedical plant to create jobs and secure our future from China and other foreign suppliers. Dr. Spiers is adamant that Texas must be protected from China and is concerned about their real estate purchases.
The reputation of the GLO has been severely tarnished in recent years. Contributions to the Permanent School Fund have declined precipitously, putting pressure on school funding; the Alamo Project has suffered from flawed concepts and lack of fiscal transparency; state and private lands are being threatened by the federal 30 x 30 plan; delays in responding to and distributing funding after hurricanes caused human suffering; and, sadly, services to our veterans administered by the GLO are deteriorating. (Note: This is an open seat due to incumbent George P. Bush running for Attorney General.)
The Land Commissioner is an elected position, but it is NOT a “political” job. Rarely has a candidate interviewing with us for an executive state-wide position brought the depth of experience, the multi-discipline knowledge, and the specific skill sets needed to rebuild the organization’s reputation, improve communications and transparency, and rebuild confidence. The Texas Land Commissioner is a service job requiring a proven leader like Dr. Jon Spiers. We urge a vote for Dr. Jon Spiers in the March 1 Republican Primary.
Wayne Christian - Texas Railroad Commission
As a taxpayer champion in the Texas House and now as an experienced, proven Railroad Commissioner, we’ve always been able to count on Wayne Christian to lead the way in promoting the principles of limited government that provide the greatest economic freedom to individuals and businesses in the Lone Star State.
RRComm -- Show More
David Schenck - Justice, Texas Supreme Court, Place 9
SC P9 -- Show More
Bluntly, we observe the Texas Supreme Court becoming far too political due to the maneuvering of timed vacancies and gubernatorial appointments rather than having justices elected by the people. This is an injustice to our State Constitution and its protections for Texans’ liberties, which are NOT to be suspended during proclaimed emergencies.
“While we are aware that Justice Schenck was first appointed to his current position by Gov. Perry, his record leaves no doubt about his commitment to the Constitution, the rule of law, and the right of all Texans to an honest, competent, and impartial judiciary. The current officeholder, just appointed by Gov. Abbott in November 2021, has never served as a judge. Although no judicial experience is required by the Texas Constitution, we believe Texas – now more than ever – needs clear-eyed bench experience and a thought leader like Justice Schenck who is laser-focused on independent and impartial justice.”
Clint Morgan - Judge, Court of Criminal Appeals, Place 5
CCA P5 -- Show More
“A constitutional conservative, Clint Morgan is known to be a man of the highest character. He is a career prosecutor with over a decade of experience and excellence in criminal law. With a proven court room record and a prolific body of outstanding appellate briefs, Clint is a thought leader in Texas criminal justice, a clear and compelling orator, and a high-energy administrator. An originalist in the mold of US Supreme Court Justices Thomas and Alito, when Clint interprets the Constitution or a law, he respects its original meaning and does the arduous work of digging out the legal history from original sources. He will not legislate from the bench! Texas needs Clint Morgan on the Court of Criminal Appeals – Texas’ highest court for criminal cases!”
Bob Hall - Senate District 2
For his consistent, principled and courageous stand for saving lives and resisting Austin Groupthink, State Senator Bob Hall has earned our strong endorsement for re-election.
SD 5 -- Show More
Warren Norred - Senate District 10
JoAnn Fleming, Executive Director: “We are confident Warren Norred is the bold leader we need in the Texas Senate.
SD 10 -- Show More
“Warren Norred is the bold, constitutionally conservative leadership we need to shove state government back into a constitution-sized box – back into its proper role – funding only those core constitutional functions of state government, not feeding special interests. Warren will fight to stop the “borrow and spend” abuse of taxpayers and to finally deliver abolition of property taxes, while slashing regulations.
“Warren will put Texas Citizens First! He wants to stop the high cost of illegal immigration that comes from dangerous drugs, violent crime, sex trafficking, the drain on jails, schools, and health care – not to mention a bursting welfare system. You can count on Warren Norred to stand up for the rule of law – all of it, all the time!
“And when it comes to ending medical child abuse – the sex change butchery and chemical sterilization of little children – Warren Norred will be a strong fighter for these kids and will back down to no one. Warren has a record of fighting government tyranny and vaccine mandates.
“Send Warren Norred to the Texas Senate. He’s smart. He’s tough. He’s a Texas patriot.”
Raul Reyes - Senate District 24
JoAnn Fleming, Executive Director: “Grassroots America strongly endorses Raul Reyes for the TX Senate because Raul is no political insider or game-player.

Dewey Collier - House District 5
Board of Directors: “We are pleased to endorse US Army Lt. Colonel Dewey R. Collier (Ret) for State Representative in House District 5.
HD 5 -- Show More
“LTC Collier is a decorated Army officer. Among his many military awards, he received the Soldiers Medal for rescuing two pilots from a burning helicopter crash. He is a nurse by profession with a Master of Science degree who served in both Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, attended the Command General Staff College, and culminated his military career as Director of the Army Surgical Technology program, Joint Base San Antonio. Clearly, his years of military service, his dedication to healing injured soldiers, and his many career accomplishments, certify his commitment to selflessly serving others and his devotion to Liberty’s founding principles.
“LTC Collier is committed to the conservative Republican Party of Texas priority legislation and to ending Republican House rules that allow Democrats to chair committees (where they kill conservative bills). Mr. Collier has a deep and wide-ranging knowledge on many key issues and can speak more knowledgeably on the high cost of illegal immigration, operational control of the border, state sovereignty, the evils of Cultural Marxism, social-emotional learning indoctrination in schools, health care freedom, and state sovereignty than many incumbent legislators. In particular, LTC Collier has conducted research on successful bills in other states to begin drafting legislation to codify parental rights in the education of and care for their children – rights which are now under severe attack in Texas and across the nation.
“Citizens of HD 5 deserve a working State Representative who will go far beyond canned talking points, a political fool-a-crowd mentality, pay attention to the serious issues facing Texas, and step up with integrity to represent the people – not the Austin Swamp. We therefore urge a vote for Dewey R. Collier in the March 1, 2022, Republican Primary.”
Matt Schaefer - House District 6
JoAnn Fleming, Executive Director, Board of Directors: “We strongly endorse the re-election of Rep. Matt Schaefer to represent Texas House District 6.
HD 6 -- Show More
Matt’s moral values, work ethic, preparedness, proven conservative record, and his bold, consistent voice raised in defense of liberty principles and conservative values (across a wide range of issues) make him a dependable defender of traditional values, life, religious liberty, gun rights, the family, and small businesses. Matt is accessible to grassroots leaders and has many times assisted in removing dangerous language from legislation. From his work on the House Appropriations Committee, to defending the sanctity of all human life, to improving student access to the master trades, to speaking out against unconstitutional executive orders, to his skilled passage of permit-less carry, Matt Schaefer is a needed force on the frontlines to save Texas.”

Tom Glass - House District 17

“Conservative Tom Glass will not bow to liberal media opinions, big business interests, political thuggery or a God-less culture. We are confident that Tom possesses the moral compass and the courage to stand and fight for state sovereignty and individual liberty by fighting against Austin corruption. Texas is at a crossroads. She needs strong, energetic, capable, principled leaders. Vote Liberty – send Tom Glass to the Texas House.”

Terri Leo-Wilson - House District 23
JoAnn Fleming, Executive Director: “Reminding voters why we strongly support Terri Leo-Wilson for State Rep. HD 23.
HD 23 -- Show More
“Terri has over twelve years of unpaid public service on the State Board of Education and the State Republican Executive Committee (SREC). Only a person who understands the battle, the signs of the times, and what is at stake, will spend thousands of hours without pay or staff reading through textbooks and compiling reports. Terri’s core values and politics are proven by her record of service and unwavering conservative values. You can trust Terri Leo-Wilson to take her record of fighting ‘Critical Race Theory’ and liberal indoctrination from the State Board of Education to the Texas House. Electing Terri will put a first-rate warrior on the front lines to fight against radical Leftists and the Rinos who enable them.”

Fritz Hager - Smith County Commissioner Pct 1
Endorsement Statement for Fritz Hager for Smith County Commissioner
CC P1 -- Show More
Mr. Hager is a West Point graduate and is a combat veteran awarded a Silver Star for valorous action after crossing a minefield outside of Kuwait City to safely evacuate his platoon under enemy fire. He is a successful business executive with two corporations. He is Executive Pastor of a fast-growing church and is also Brigade Chaplin in the Texas State Guard. Hager is currently pursuing a law degree.
Mr. Hager has extensive business experience and financial acumen that would prove beneficial to Smith County taxpayers. He has a proven track record of returning dividends to his shareholders. And his record of growing the church for which he has primary responsibility speaks to his convictions
The Grassroots America Board analyzed the property tax history for the most recent six years for which the candidate was responsible. Mr. Hager supported reductions in the Tyler ISD operational tax rate in spite of an increase in bonded indebtedness. In addition, Mr. Hager was a trustee and president of Tyler ISD during complicated and expensive building projects. Always knowledgeable about the projects, Hager was a strong voice in the process for completing these large bond projects on time and under budget. He was always a strong supporter of Tyler ISD paying down bond debt early, saving taxpayers millions of dollars in interest.
Mr. Hager is an advocate for restraining the size and cost of county government and gave numerous, specific examples of ideas he wishes to initiate to improve county services while reducing the cost of operations. He does not support toll road schemes where the tolls never come off the road when it is paid for, where profits are privatized, and costs are socialized (taxpayers on the hook for failed tolled companies and debt). Instead, Mr. Hager supports “pay as you go” to maintain roads and bridges without adding debt onto the backs of taxpayers.
Fritz Hager is a dedicated supporter of law and order. He is strongly pro-life and spoke extensively about the need to save our community from the encroachment of the cultural Marxism of WOKE ideology. Should our community’s conservative values – rooted in the Judeo-Christian ethic – come under attack, we cannot imagine Fritz Hager being anywhere but on the front lines to apply his conservative standards and values in defense of our community. Nor can we imagine him not applying a rigorous standard of stewardship to the spending of our tax dollars.
Experience and Skills
Fritz Hager exhibits a strong command of financial and operational analytics – skills that are rare in county commissioner candidates. In speaking with people who have known and worked with him for many years, we discovered that Hager is known as a hands-on problem solver with the managerial skills to encourage teamwork and cooperation. With four of the five seats on the Smith County Commissioners Court turning over this election cycle, Fritz Hager’s business skills and experience are greatly needed. We therefore encourage voters to elect Fritz Hager to the Smith County Commissioners Court in the March 1, 2022, Republican Primary.

He will help build a team of Republican Precinct Chairs who stand by the conservative family values found in the Republican Party of Texas Platform.

Wayne Allen is a 28-year veteran of the Tyler Police Department and was a member of the US Secret Service Financial Crimes Task Force. He has been the recipient of numerous honors and awards and has a history of service to his profession and community.
