Olcott Concedes Palo Pinto Recount: Rogers Victorious

GRAFORD, TX – The third and final recount of the May 24th Republican Party Runoff Election concluded
Tuesday, June 21st after the Republican Party of Texas officially accepted the Notice of Withdrawal for the
Palo Pinto County recount petition from the Olcott Campaign.

The notice marks a formal concession of the Palo Pinto County Recount, allowing the State of Texas to
certify the results as tallied on election night. With all counties certifying the recount results at the same
margin as reported initially, Representative Rogers will hold his original lead. As no Democrat is on the
ballot for November, Rogers has once again won re-election to the Texas House.

“I am so proud of the volunteers, election workers, and the county Republican Chairpersons, who did
everything they could to make the past month an honest, transparent, and efficient process,” Rogers said.
“I also cannot be more grateful to the representatives from the Secretary of State’s Office who made the
trip down to help facilitate the recount fairly.”

Rogers’ victory on May 24th and June 21st was a mandate from the voters to send an effective conservative
voice back to the State House, and a repudiation of the dark money campaigning that seek to put the people
representation in the hands of oligarchical influences.

“Despite the best attempts of those who sought to smear my name for the past six months, the people’s
voice prevailed,” Rogers concluded. “The people of Texas can know that their elections are secure, my
supporters can know that their efforts were not in vain, and our constituents can know that they will have a
true, district-first fighter representing them in Austin.”

Dr. Rogers is a veterinarian and owns and operates Holt River Ranch in Palo Pinto County. He resides in
Graford with his wife, Mandy. They have three daughters, Meg, Ginny, and Leah; one son, Ben, and five
grandchildren. Glenn and Mandy are longtime members of the Methodist Church.

Representative Rogers won re-election as State Representative for House District 60 on May 24, 2022,
now comprised of Stephens, Palo Pinto, and Parker Counties
