Quotes

"There can be no national security without border security, and Texans have paid too high a price for the federal government's failure to secure our border" said Mr Perry, who ran unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 and has been named as a possible contender in 2016
"As the brave men and women of our Border Patrol are pulled away from their law enforcement duties to give humanitarian aid, drug cartels, human traffickers, individual criminals are exploiting this tragedy for their own criminal opportunities" Perry told media during a Monday conference at the Texas Capitol
...away with my family and the opportunity to reflect on it I have decided not to run for the recently opened state senate seat," the statement reads. "We have been very fortunate to have a man of the caliber of Bob Duncan in that capacity, and I wish the candidates that do decide to run the very best."
"The facts are that Will Hurd's dangerous plan would jeopardize vital services - from medical care to pensions - that Texas veterans and their families have earned and deserve. Instead of closing tax loopholes abused by the ultra-wealthy and corporations that ship jobs overseas, Hurd would balance the budgets on the backs of Texas veterans - which is just another sign that Hurd is out of touch with West Texas families."
