T.J. Fabby, Republican candidate for State Representative in House District 10, has received several more endorsements from top conservative lawmakers — State Representatives Matt Schaefer (HD 7), Steve Toth (HD 15), Pat Fallon (HD 106), Bill Zedler (HD 96), and Scott Turner (HD 33).  

“Freedom isn’t just a political slogan for T.J., it is truly his focus,” said Schaefer.  “A focus on freedom is greatly needed in Austin.”

Rep. Toth was elected to the legislature in 2012 and made a name for himself by authoring the Firearms Protection Act, which would have made federal gun bans unenforceable in Texas.  Rep. Fallon was also elected in 2012 and co-authored the Merry Christmas Bill, which allows school districts to use traditional Christmas greetings.  Rep. Zedler served in the legislature from 2002 to 2008, and was elected again in 2010.  Zedler co-authored several bills in the 2013 session to strengthen gun rights.  Rep. Turner was a freshman in the 2013 session and “is now an announced candidate for Speaker of the House for the 2015 session.”

“I’m grateful to have the support of so many leading conservatives,” said Fabby.  “There is a battle going on for the heart and soul of this country, and Texas is the battleground.  I look forward to joining these distinguished individuals as they fight the liberal agenda in Austin and stand against federal overreach.  In addition, I know they’ll be supportive of me as I work for the interests of District 10.”

Fabby is seeking to replace Jim Pitts, who recently announced his retirement from the Texas House. He lives with his wife and two children in Waxahachie.
