Another one of the former candidates in the Republican Primary for the 19th Congressional District has made an endorsement in the upcoming runoff.

DeRenda Warren (pictured, above) on Tuesday announced she is endorsing Jodey Arrington in the Texas 19 Republican Primary Runoff Election.

Warren received 2.23% of the vote in the Primary Election on March 1.

In endorsing Arrington, Warren said, "West Texas, now more than ever, needs a representative that will stay focused on the core issues facing this district. Agriculture first and foremost, improved and affordable healthcare, immigration and border security with Mexico, faithfully honoring our promises to the military veterans, and improved education in our schools are all key concerns for the voters of the 19th District.


“It‘s imperative that I thank those voters who supported me and my campaign. I want to strongly encourage them to choose Jodey Arrington (pictured, left) in the runoff election. I believe that he possesses many important qualities that would render him the best candidate for the 19th District going forward. He has established a rapport with the Agricultural and Medical communities, and would best represent the values and the West Texas way of life for the U.S. 19th Congressional District of Texas," Warren concluded.

The Arrington campaign is also touting endorsements from the Texas Farm Bureau AGFUND, Texas Association of Business and Industry BACPAC, the Independent Bankers Association of Texas, and Terry County Republican Party Chairman Bradford L. Moore.

In accepting the endorsement, Arrington said, "I thank former Lady Raider, DeRenda Warren for a clean and hard-fought primary campaign and welcome her to the team! It is a humbling experience in life to receive so much support from the people who make our region the great place it truly is. I will continue to work hard to try and speak with every voter about our conservative vision for West Texas that will help families and small businesses thrive in a country we can be proud of each and every day.”

Earlier this month, Arrington's opponent, Glen Robertson, was endorsed by former candidate Jason Corley.
