Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“Royce West is a strong leader, consensus-builder, and proven legislator. A fighter for the city of Dallas and the people of Texas, the Texas Democratic Party is excited to see him enter the 2020 United States Senate race.
“Royce has stood up for Texas’ working families in the state Senate time and time again. In his nearly 30 years of service, he has fought in the Legislature so every Texan has a fair shot at getting ahead.
“Texas is the biggest battleground state. In 2020, we’re going to take out John Cornyn and elect a new wave of Democrats across our state. The Texas Democratic Party is proud Democrats, like Royce West, are running. Texas Democrats know that with hard work, strong values, and bold action, victory is in our grasp.”
