“In the 2022 midterm elections, I am proud to stand with and endorse John Lira for Congress in Texas-23.  His service in the military and desire to continue serving in national government have prepared John to be an important voice and advocate in Congress.

Escobar’s  endorsement for Texas 23rd U.S. House District,” said U.S. House Texas 23 Candidate John Lira.  He continues, “this is my first endorsement from a standing member of the U.S. House of Representatives and at that, a member of the Texas Delegation. As a proud Texan, I am confident that this will be the first of many endorsements from standing members of Congress.  I commit to work hard to make sure families in Texas are properly represented in Congress and not ignored when elected.
