AUSTIN, Texas (KETK) – Gov. Greg Abbott announced on Wednesday his endorsement for Joanne Shofner for House District 11. “Joanne Shofner is the kind of new conservative voice we need in Austin to help deliver key Republican victories that are important to Texans,” Abbott said. “As a small business owner, Joanne understands that cutting property taxes is essential for Texas to remain the economic engine of the nation. She’ll fight to secure our border from President Biden’s disastrous open border policies and will expand school choice for every Texas parent and student across our great state.
