Matt Rinaldi Re-Election Endorsed by 41 Texas Legislators 

Dallas-area State Representative Receives Strong Support for Re-Election

(AUSTIN, TX)– Rep. Matt Rinaldi (R-Irving) today announced 41 state representatives who have publicly endorsed his re-election State Representative of House District 115. His endorsements include six committee chairmen and nine vice chairmen.

Rinaldi was first elected in 2014 with wide support from the grassroots, despite being outspent nearly seven to one in the GOP primary. He was re-elected in 2016 with increased GOP support. “I’m honored to receive the support of so many of my colleagues with whom I have worked so closely the past two legislative sessions and I appreciate their confidence in me,” said Rinaldi. 

Rinaldi was ranked one of most conservative legislators in the House by a non-partisan study conducted by Rice University in June. In the 85th Legislative Session, his accomplishments include an amendment to the sanctuary city legislation signed into law by Gov. Abbott provides for the removal of local officials adopting sanctuary policies and a budget amendment preventing taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. He also proposed legislation eliminating the Robin Hood school finance system. “I appreciate Matt Rinaldi working with me in the fight to repeal Robin Hood,” said Rep. Dwayne Bohac, a senior member on the Public Education Committee. “Matt has fought tirelessly to keep our local school dollars with our local districts.”
