Incumbent U.S. District 13 Congressman Ronny Jackson was reelected with 82.5 percent of the Wilbarger County vote; and 75.4 percent district wide. Jackson stated: “I am grateful to the many Patriots across our district who have elected me to represent them in Congress for another two years. The trust that has been placed in me is not taken lightly. I remain committed to upholding our conservative Texas values with every vote I take on the House Floor and with every initiative I work on. I feel confident that we are well on our way to securing a Republican majority in the House, a clear mandate from the American people to finally put a stop to Democrats’ reign of destruction. Democrats are the party of record-high inflation, out-of-control crime rates, and an unprecedented invasion at our southern border. They have failed our country miserably, and I look forward to turning things around by being a leader at the forefront of our government’s return to the successful America First policies first championed by President Trump.”
