MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - Democratic Nominee for Texas Attorney General Justin Nelson joined Democratic Nominee for Texas Commissioner of Agriculture Kim Olson at the Midland County Courthouse for their “Nobody Is Above the Law” tour Monday.
Nelson and Olson met with area voters and members of the media and discussed their effort to restore integrity to Texas state government. Nelson also highlighted his Plan for Fighting Corruption in Texas.
“Texans need an Attorney General who will serve as a check on power, not one who serves as a rubber stamp and not one who is indicted for fraud,” Nelson said. “Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is better at breaking laws than he is at enforcing them. For the last three years, Paxton has been under criminal indictment for felony fraud in connection with a stock swindle that he profited from while innocent Texas investors lost hundreds of thousands of dollars. He has also been investigated for bribery, lined his pockets at the expense of Texas taxpayers, and dropped prosecutions targeting his friends and donors. It’s time for a Texas Attorney General who fights corruption instead taking part in it.”
“Agriculture affects us all, and Texans deserve a leader who will represent everyone,” Olson said. “The security of our state – our country – hinges on whether we can feed our own. Ag isn’t a red or blue issue; it’s a red, white, and blue issue. The role of Agriculture Commissioner requires professionalism and experience to ensure the healthy future of Texas and Texans.”
