Ron Wright told supporters he is ready to hit the ground running if he is elected in November to represent the Sixth Congressional District, which includes Tarrant, Ellis, and Navarro Counties. Wright spoke Monday night September 24, at a meet and greet hosted by Julie and Thomas McNutt in Corsicana.
Wright, who won the Republican nomination after a May runoff, reminded everyone to tell their friends and neighbors to get out and vote November 6. “All of us have to do everything we can to send a conservative to Washington D.C.,” said Thomas McNutt who introduced Wright to the crowd of around 50 people. “There is a distinctive difference between Ron Wright and his opponent.”
Wright worked in Congressman Joe Barton’s Office from 2000 to 2011 as District Director and as Chief of Staff. After November’s election, Wright is hoping to replace the long-tenured Ennis Republican in the halls of Congress next January. “I know where the coffee pot and restrooms are already,” Wright said. “I’ll be ready to get to work.”
Wright said he considers protection of the border a national security issue. He supports building the wall, and said he would join the Freedom Caucus if he was asked.
Wright spoke for a few moments about the need to continue the country’s economic growth. He credited President Trump’s leadership and commitment of Congressional Republicans, who passed the 2017 tax reform bill and streamlined regulations which legislators considered bad for business. Wright said he would support making the individual tax cuts permanent, which are set to expire in 2015. He also said that he intends to bring down the National Debt.
Wright cautioned against voter complacency. “We have to get out and vote in November to keep a Republican majority,” he said. “That way we can continue to keep moving forward.”
“Navarro County is very important to our campaign. The republicans here can put us over the top,” Wright said. “Don’t let the Navarro County’s small population fool you. There are a lot of Republicans and Independents here and I’d like to ask for your support.”
Wright will face Ellis County native Jana Lynne Sanchez in the November Election.
The last day to register to vote is October 9. Residents and registered voters have the option of voting early beginning October 22 or at any Navarro County Vote Center on Election Day November 6.
