PALO PINTO COUNTY, TX – On September 1st, 2020, Dr. Glenn Rogers, new State Representative Elect for House District 60, publicly endorsed Rep. Drew Springer for the Texas Senate District 30 seat at his annual dove hunting event held at Holt River Ranch.

On the first day of Dove Hunting Season, Dr. Glenn Rogers normally holds an annual event to invite others to hunt doves at Holt River Ranch. Normally a day full of hunting and socializing, the event looked quite different this year. The annual event turned into a celebration of Dr. Rogers’ recent victory following the HD 60 Runoff Elections. Several supporters gathered with Dr. Rogers to join in the celebration and the new State Representative Elect was quick to humbly show his appreciation to all those who helped him during the race.

“There’s people here from Brownwood. There’s people here from Austin. There’s people here from Cross Plains, Breckinridge, Eastland, Mineral Wells. Y’all have come from all over. We do this every year for hunters, but this year is kind of a mixed bag . . . I want to recognize our team. Many of you know Jeff Hinkson and it was at this very event last year that I sat down with Jeff to ask him for his help in running during the campaign.”

Dr. Glenn Rogers went on to thank his entire campaign team among many supporters:

  • Jeff Hinkson of Strawn, TX: Campaign Manager, who’s family has been within Palo Pinto County since the 1850’s. Hinkson has experience in marketing, public speaking, and communications. He was a key player in the creation of the state park and chamber of commerce in Strawn, TX.
  • Cayler Banks of Mineral Wells, TX: Marketing Director and recent graduate from Tarleton State University. President of The Banks Media Group; member of the 2019-2022 Mineral Wells Chamber of Commerce Board.
  • Judson Meeks of Mineral Wells, TX: Longtime oil & gas industry consultant. Currently serving as a strategic communication consultant while finishing up my PhD at Texas Tech University.
  • Laramie Stroud of Strawn, TX: Policy Advisor

Texas State Representative James Frank of Wichita Falls, Chairman Robert Porter and “Distinguished Citizen” as designated by the Texas Trails Council in 2017, and Rex Tackett, 2012 Texas Radio Hall of Fame and owner/partner of Wendlee Broadcasting in Brownwood were just a few of the many attendees who were publicly shown appreciation by Dr. Glenn Rogers.

“This was a long, hard race against a difficult opponent. Our opponent spent 1.7 million dollars and had all of the resources in the world and, because of those of you here who have supported me, we still were able to win this race.”

Dr. Rogers went on to endorse Rep. Drew Springer for the Texas District Senate 30 seat: “Drew is the first person I have endorsed as State Representative Elect. I read up on Drew and I have been following his career and Drew is very pro-second amendment, pro-agriculture, pro-life, pro-rural Texas, and pro-education – all of the things that I try to represent as well. I’m very proud to endorse Drew Springer for State Senate to take the place of Pat Fallon.”

Drew Springer was in attendance and spoke of the upcoming elections and his experience:

“Pat Fallon won a special congressional race. He is going to be on the ballot in November and is currently in resignation. The governor has called a special election for September 29th. That’s thirty-six days to run a race to cover one million people. That’s fourteen counties. As Glenn said, I represented twenty-two [counties] – that’s bigger than seventy-four countries. I drive about 60,000 miles a year. I share agriculture and livestock. I’m pleased to be able to say I’m endorsed . . . They do have five Republicans that are running in this race. I’m the only one with legislative experience. I’m the only one who can say they have fought for rural Texas, have fought for our water rights, have fought for our gun rights. I have fought for our state to stay conservative, a place where even Californians to New Yorkans have come to escape liberalism. We will continue to do that . . . I grew up in Parker county spent a ton of time in Erath, bought my first pick-up truck in Stephenville, Tx in 1983, and I went to school at UNT . . . They will have two weeks of early voting. I will make sure that, if Glenn has whatever legislation he has coming out of House District 60, he will have a friend in the senate who will be his workhorse to pick it up.”

District 30 of the Texas Senate currently serves all of Archer, Clay, Cooke, Erath, Grayson, Jack, Montague, Palo Pinto, Parker, Wichita, Wise, Young, portions of Collin, and Denton counties of Texas. Five Republicans including Shelley Luther of Dallas (a Dallas salon owner), Denton Mayor Cris Watts, Craig Carter of Noconoa, Andy Hopper of Decatur, and Rep. Drew Springer are in the running for SD 30. One Democrat is also in the running: Jacob Minter, Anna, TX.

Early voting for the special September 29th election begins on September 14th.
