Austin, TX—Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) announced today their endorsement of Representative Sid Miller for reelection in Texas House District 59.

“Rep. Miller is a leader who doesn’t just talk the talk, he walks the walk,” said Tony McDonald, YCT Senior Vice Chairman. “Miller is an effective legislator. Last session, he passed a bill that will ensure that women in abortion clinics are fully informed before they go forward with such a life ending decision. Other Representatives boast about their legislative accomplishments, but Rep. Miller’s informed consent bill will undoubtedly save innocent lives.”

During the 82nd Legislature, Miller authored and passed HB 15, a bill requiring all women to be presented with a sonogram image of their baby before proceeding with an abortion. Along with being a longtime pro-life, pro-family leader, Miller has fought to keep taxes low and to secure the Texas border.

“Representative Sid Miller is the best candidate to represent the values of the hardworking residents of District 59,” commented Jeff Morris, YCT State Chairman. “He truly represents the voters’ conservative values and they should send him back to Austin next session.”

In response to the endorsement, Representative Miller said, “I am proud of my proven conservative voting record in the Texas House of Representatives and pleased that I have once again earned the endorsement of the Young Conservatives of Texas. I am honored to have their support in my reelection campaign so that I continue my work as Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security and Public Safety to secure our border, protect our second amendment rights, and keep Texas families safe.”

Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) has been promoting conservatism at universities across the Lone Star State for over three decades. The state’s most active political youth organization, YCT is composed of hundreds of members and alumni who participate in the full spectrum of politics.
