"This should be a loud and clear message to Washington power-hungry politicians: States are the proper place to establish Election Laws and efforts by the Federal Government to take over our elections should never succeed."
Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas – "Texans don't need Washington elites telling them how to safeguard and protect voting rights," said Sen. Ted Cruz, following Governor Greg Abbott's signing of SB 1, a Voting Rights Bill, into law.
"Today, Governor Greg Abbott signed SB 1, a bill to safeguard our elections in Texas, despite immense pressure from Democrats and the liberal media. The bill protects the voting rights of 29 million Texans and would make our elections in Texas accessible and secure. When Texans go to cast a vote, that vote should count.
"I am grateful for the Republicans and the Leadership in the Texas Senate and House, especially State Sen. Bryan Hughes and State Rep. Andy Murr, who've been leading the fight to protect the integrity of elections in Texas.
"This should be a loud and clear message to Washington power-hungry politicians: states are the proper place to establish election laws and efforts by the federal government to take over our elections should never succeed," said Cruz.
