AUSTIN – The Texas Apartment Association (TAA) has announced its endorsement of Dan Branch for Texas Attorney General.
“Dan Branch stands up for limited government,” said George B. Allen, TAA’s Executive Vice President. “Dan is a strong, well-respected leader who has the talent and experience to serve our state well as Attorney General. We know that, under Dan’s leadership, the Attorney General’s office will continue to protect state policies that help keep Texas’ economic climate healthy and limit excessive government regulation.”
“With over 1,000 people moving to Texas per day, it is clear that our sensible regulations and conservative, pro-growth policies have made the Lone Star State the envy of the nation,” said Dan Branch. “As Attorney General, I will carry on Greg Abbott’s legacy of protecting the laws that have made this remarkable economic boom possible. I will provide the tough, competent leadership necessary to ensure that Texas continues to shine.”
TAA has more than 10,700 members and represents more than 1.8 million rental units throughout the state. TAA represents all aspects of the rental housing industry. Members of the association provide housing for more than 4 million Texans, employ an estimated 70,000 full-time employees, represent property with a market value of more than $150 billion, and pay property taxes exceeding $3 billion a year.
Since announcing his candidacy for Texas Attorney General, Dan Branch has received the endorsement of four former Texas Supreme Court Justices, including a former U.S. Attorney General and a former Chief Justice; ten former top deputies to Attorney General Greg Abbott; 13 legal and campaign advisers to U.S. Senator Ted Cruz; eight conservative former U.S. Supreme Court clerks; Federalist Society leaders across Texas; leading law enforcement officers, including the Texas Department of Public Safety Officers Association PAC; a majority of the Texas House Republican Caucus, including the Tea Party Caucus Chairman; over 125 leaders and members of the Texas Federation of Republican Women; over 30 young Republican leaders and grassroots activists across Texas.
