John Ratcliffe Receives Red State Endorsement

Red State Editor Believes it is Time for a New Generation of Conservative in Washington

ROCKWALL, TX – Former U.S. Attorney and Republican candidate for Texas’ 4th Congressional District John Ratcliffe received the endorsement of Red State Editor-in-Chief Erick Erickson.

“I’m pleased to support John Ratcliffe and hope you will too,” said Erickson in his endorsement. “It is time for a new generation of conservative in Washington. John Ratcliffe is the best choice for that in Texas’s 4th congressional district.”

The endorsement also highlighted Rep. Ralph Hall’s long tenure in Washington and the need for new and energetic leadership. “He’s been there a really long time,” said Erickson. “And in a year when people want fresh faces and a reboot in Washington, voting for the 90 year old incumbent who has been in Washington 33 years is not the way to do it.”

Ratcliffe is thankful for his most recent endorsement. “I am grateful for Red State’s support,” said Ratcliffe. “It echoes what I’ve been hearing from voters all across the district. They’re sick and tired of seeing the GOP get outworked, outsmarted and outmaneuvered by Obama and the Democrats. We need new leadership because we deserve better results.”

On March 4th, Ratcliffe held Hall to just 45% of the vote, the first time a challenger has ever forced the 17 term incumbent into a runoff. The Republican Primary Runoff Election will be held on May 27th.
