Victor Leal announced today that Joshua Raef will serve as his campaign treasurer for his upcoming bid for Texas Senate.

Leal, a Republican, announced Raef as his campaign treasurer, this morning. Leal announced the appointment of Raef, writing, "This guy knows a thing or two about customer service."

Raef is a local restaurant franchisee who owns the Georgia Street location of Chick-Fil-A. Raef also was a finalist for a vacant spot on the Amarillo Economic Development Corporation earlier this year.
