Chuck Meyer uses endorsements for Texas’ 36th District seat campaign

AUSTIN, Texas — Saying he was humbled and honored, Texas’ 36th Congressional District Republican Primary candidate Chuck Meyer recently received several major political endorsements that he believes solidifies his position as the leading candidate in a runoff following the March 4 election.

Meyer recently received the local, state and national endorsements of the Republican Liberty Caucus, the United Republicans of Harris County endorsement and won a straw poll of the Houston Young Republicans as part of his congressional bid.

“I look forward to working with these and all the other groups which are dedicated to stopping the erosion of the freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution and promoting fiscally conservative policies that support and enhance the values of liberty-loving Texans,” Meyer said. “This race is all about credibility, electability and responsibility.

“As congressman, I will fight for oversight through oversight to protect the interests of voters and taxpayers in the 36th Congressional District.”

Sharing his views at an invite-only meeting in Houston Saturday with U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-KY, Meyer reinforced his point about the role of Congress and the shared belief with Paul in a “return to constitutional principles” movement in this county.

“The Congress is the branch of government that is charged with oversight and carrying out the checks and balances over the other two branches of government,” Meyer said. “Period.”

A recent example Meyer said was Wednesday’s hearing before the U.S. House Committee on Science Space and Technology and its case study “Examining the Science of EPA Overreach: A Case Study in Texas.”

Jeff LeBlanc, chairman of the RLC for CD36, said “Over the course of our many private conversations, caucus candidate questionnaire responses, and audience-participatory events, it became clear to us that Chuck Meyer is the best man to represent the principles we in the liberty movement consider of the utmost importance to preserving the very best of American life. We look forward to actively supporting him in the coming weeks before the March 4th primary.”

In a statement, the RLC said that the special skill Meyer brings is his ability to bring together all conservatives in the party for the common good, a feat not easily claimed in the uneasy waters of the modern day Republican Party. This is clearly demonstrated by not only our endorsement but that of United Republicans as well.

Joining Meyer’s campaign is Josh Jones, an experienced campaign consultant who has worked for federal and state races, including U.S. Senator Ted Cruz’s campaign where he was responsible for rallying conservative grassroots efforts in Harris, Chambers and Liberty counties.

Jones is also a mechanical engineer from the University of Texas with a global MBA from Hult International Business School. He is an experienced project engineer in the energy industry focused on oil & Gas construction and subsea pipeline installation.

 “As an engineer in the energy industry, I understand the importance of logic and experience in the public policy making process,” Jones said. “I've seen firsthand how principled conservative leaders can challenge the status quo and make a difference in the lives of Americans. I whole heartedly support Chuck Meyer for Congress.”

Dan Bledsoe brings more than 23 years of media and governmental experience having worked for numerous media outlets and being involved in many political campaigns including those of U.S. Ted Poe, R-Humble, and current Texas Transportation Commissioner Jeff Moseley during Moseley’s tenure as Denton County judge.

Bledsoe also volunteered the weekend after 9/11 and spent more than a year with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the agency that built the Twin Towers.

“Chuck Meyer’s credentials speak for themselves,” Bledsoe said. “As a premier technology lawyer and patent attorney, Meyer’s commitment to local social and professional organizations shows that he cares as much about faith, family and community as he does the pursuit of innovation and prosperity.

“With degrees from a number of leading institutions including American, George Washington and Oxford, I urge voters to support Chuck Meyer - an experienced, proven business leader and local community advocate.”

Meyer made it clear that, while voters will ultimately decide who is in the runoff, he believes his efforts in the past two years throughout the district has best positioned him to represent CD36 voters in Congress.
