Austin, TX – Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) today endorsed Bud Wiesedeppe for District Judge for the 164th Judicial District in Harris County.  Wiesedeppe is running in the Republican primary to replace Democratic incumbent Alexandra Smoots-Hogan and is facing one opponent in the primary election.

“Bud Wiesedeppe is the conservative choice for district judge,” said Tony McDonald, YCT Senior Vice Chairman.  “Wiesedeppe will represent the people of Texas with integrity.  He understands the conservative philosophies of originalism, textualism, and judicial restraint and will put them into practice on the bench.”

Wiesedeppe, a father of two children, is a graduate of Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law and has lived and worked in Houston since 1997 at the firm of Woodfill & Pressler, L.L.P.

“It is time that judicial consistency and restraint is brought back to the bench in the 164th Judicial District,” added Jeff Morris, YCT State Chairman.  “Bud Wiesedeppe is the one to provide that conservative leadership.”

Wiesedeppe commented on the endorsement, saying, “For years, Young Conservatives of Texas have been a leading voice in Republican politics.  I am honored that they have chosen to support my candidacy.”
