Republican incumbent Congressman John Culberson released the following statement on Texas primary election night:
Tonight Belinda and I would like to thank the voters of the 7th district for the trust they’ve placed in me as their Congressman and for this nomination for another term. I intend to wage an aggressive campaign and I intend to win.
My position as chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, and Science gives me a unique opportunity to deliver important results for Houston. My utmost priority has been to ensure Houston families are getting the funding and relief help they need in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, as well as working with state and local officials to improve and modernize Houston’s flood infrastructure to help prevent future flooding disasters.
Thanks to the support of the people of the 7th district, the seniority I’ve acquired has enabled me to ensure NASA now receives more money than at any time since its creation and to secure millions of dollars for victims of human trafficking, violence against women programs and programs for missing and exploited children. I will continue to champion these efforts in Congress and do all I can to ensure that Harris County continues to be a great place to live, work and raise a family.
