Rep. Jason Isaac won his second victory tonight, earning a decisive 76% of the vote in a straw poll conducted by the Hill Country Young Republicans and Kyle/Buda Republican Group at the final candidate forum before the primary election.
“I’m honored to have the support of voters and ready to go to Washington to get to work pushing the Texas model of limited government,” said Rep. Isaac. “Make America Like Texas is more than a slogan for me — it’s a mission statement.”
“It’s clear that Jason Isaac has the best experience and is the most prepared to lead in Congress,” said Lee Urbanovsky, a Buda city council member who attended the meeting. “With only the top two candidates making the runoff, it’s time Republicans coalesce around Jason Isaac and overwhelmingly vote for him to be our nominee in November so we can save valuable resources in defense of this district.”
Previously, Rep. Isaac swept the Central Texas Republican Assembly poll with 57% of the vote.
Rep. Isaac is the only candidate in the race for Congressional District 21 with a proven record of advocating for limited government and adept at defeating Democrats, which is critical to keeping Texas red.
Rep. Isaac is a fourth-generation native Texan who is seeking election to Congressional District 21 to replace retiring Congressman Lamar Smith. Rep. Isaac has served House District 45 in the Texas Legislature since 2011, where he is the founding chair of the Hill Country Caucus and vice president of the Texas Conservative Coalition. Rep. Isaac is a successful small business owner and lives in Hays County with his wife, Carrie, and two sons.
