GRAFORD, TX – State Representative Rogers secured first place Tuesday evening in the Republican Primary for State Representative House District 60, taking over 43% of the vote ─ a full 7 points ahead of the competition.
The Graford Republican won by huge margins in Palo Pinto and Stephens Counties, which is a testament to his constituents’ continued endorsement of his conservative voting record, support for public education, and commitment to economic growth. In Parker County, Rogers came in a close second, a remarkable showing in a new county following redistricting.
“My family and I are incredibly honored by the support of my campaign,” Rogers said, following the announcement of results. “Despite vicious attacks by special interest groups and PACs, so many took to the polls to allow me the privilege to continue serving House District 60.”
Throughout the campaign, Representative Rogers earned support from local community leaders, first responders, elected officials, and over 12,000 constituents in House District 60. Rogers’ first-place finish secures his spot in the Republican Party runoff against runner-up Mike Olcott.
The Republican Party runoff is set for May 24, 2022, with April 25 as the last day to register to vote. “I know that there is no time to rest,” Rogers said. “I take no vote for granted, and it is more important than ever for us to keep the momentum heading into the runoff. I look forward to continuing the fight to improve transportation infrastructure, strengthen public education, secure the border, and continue upon the gains made during my first term in office.”
