Thornberry Throws Weight Behind Seliger in Senate Race

Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) has thrown his support behind Senator Kel Seliger as the senator seeks re-election to the Texas Legislature.

On Wednesday, the Seliger campaign began running a social media commercial featuring Thornberry asking voters to support Seliger for re-election. In the video, Thornberry states that he is "proud" to have Seliger representing him in Austin and hopes that voters return him for another term.

Seliger has served as Texas Senator for District 31 since 2005 and is seeking re-election to the Senate again in 2018. Seliger is facing former Muleshoe mayor and restaurant owner Victor Leal and former Midland mayor Mike Canon in his bid for re-election.

Thornberry is not facing a primary opponent, but will face Democrat Greg Sagan and Libertarian Calvin DeWeese in November.
