Republican Jodey Arrington Re-Elected to Represent TX-19
Today, Representative Jodey Arrington was re-elected to represent Texas’ 19th Congressional District in the US House of Representatives for a third term. First elected in 2016, Arrington has served on House Agriculture, Budget, and Veteran’s Affairs Committees, as well as the Joint Select Committee on Budget and Appropriations Reform. He currently serves on the House Committee on Ways and Means where he is a co-chair of the Rural Health Task Force and member of the Tax and Social Security Subcommittees.
“I am immensely honored and grateful that so many of my fellow West Texans have once again placed their confidence in me to serve and represent them in our nation’s capital,” stated Arrington. “It is a privilege I am passionate about and take very seriously; and on behalf of my family and from the very bottom of our hearts, we thank you.”
“As I return to Washington, I will continue to deliver the following results: strengthen our nation’s military, secure the border, and keep our promises to our veterans; negotiate better and fairer trade deals for our farmers, manufacturers, and American workers; unleash the full potential of American enterprise through lower taxes and less regulation; champion policies that support agriculture, energy and rural America; and fight the radical left and their socialist policies that threaten West Texas, our traditional American values, and way of life.
“Regardless of the final outcome of the Presidential election, my commitment to you remains the same: I will fight for West Texas and our conservative values, to reign in the federal government, and to restore freedom and power back to We the People, where it belongs."
During his first two terms, Arrington led efforts to:
