AMARILLO -- Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) made comments after formally filing his candidacy to represent the 13th congressional district of Texas during the 114th Congress:
"I am honored that folks in this district hired me to represent them in Washington during some very difficult times for our country.I never forget who I work for. With every vote I take, I try hard to represent the views and the values of folks here at home, to give our area a strong voice in their government. At the same time, I try to do what's right for the future of our country. I will continue opposing government overreach while fighting for commonsense, conservative policies that keep America safe and get the country back on the right track."
