Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples Says Immigration And Border Security Will Be Major Focus Of Lieutenant Governor Campaign [AUDIO]


On the Thursday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples talked with Chad Hasty about his campaign for Lieutenant Governor of Texas.

Earlier this week, Staples unveiled his “Contract With Texans,” a 10-step plan outlining what he intends to do if he is elected Lieutenant Governor. He said that the position of Lieutenant Governor takes a person who is willing to work hard and is not a position for someone who wants to grandstand.

“The office of Lieutenant Governor is not a stage to prance around on. It’s not a golden microphone. the office of Lieutenant Governor is a working pit. It’s someone that can roll up their sleeves and ensure that state government is focused on the fundamentals. That’s why I signed a contract with Texans this week and outlined ten steps to a strong Texas.”

Some of the major components of Staples’s plans include cutting taxes, growing the private sector and border security. Staples explained that border security in particular is one of the paramount concerns of Texans. He said that Texas should be a leader in immigration reform and that citizenship should not be a reward for people who chooses to enter the country illegally.

Staples also shared his thoughts on the current Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst, saying that Dewhurst lacks the leadership Republican party needs, and that he made a celebrity out of Senator Wendy Davis as a result of his poor handling of the chaotic end to the Texas Legislative session earlier this year.
