Texas State Rep. Matt Shaheen of Plano announced today that he won’t be running against Phillip Huffines in the Republican Primary race for State Senate in District 8.
Shaheen said: “After much prayer, counsel and reflection on the Special Session, I have decided to seek another term in the Texas House of Representatives serving the citizens of House District 66. It is clear that the battle for the future of a better Texas lies in the House of Representatives, and I belong in that fight.”
Phillip Huffines said: “Matt Shaheen is a principled conservative and a true patriot. The constituents of House District 66 are fortunate to have him serve as their representative in the Texas House. I look forward to working with Representative Shaheen on the campaign trail. Our campaign will continue to work hard to put out our conservative message, and earn every vote. We gain momentum every day.”
