Matt McCall Registers for Ballot

Austin, TX – Congressional Candidate Matt McCall has filed paperwork with the Republican Party of Texas (RPT) to officially seek election to the United States House of Representatives in the 2016 March Republican Primary.

“The choice is clear. We can have more of the same in Lamar Smith who at the end of this term will have been in office for 30 years, or we can choose a Constitutional Conservative who will fight to move our values forward,” said McCall.

McCall champions the Constitution and in particular the 10th Amendment to return power to Texas and thereby reduce the role of the federal government.

“We must get back to freedom, opportunity, and growth through a much smaller federal government. We must kill job-killing regulation. That is the only way we can get out of the crushing debt we are threatening to leave to our children and grandchildren,” McCall added.

Matt ran against Smith in the 2014 Republican primary and won 34% of the vote, doubling what any primary contender had received against Smith in the past.  This was accomplished on a $120,000 budget with a handful of volunteers.  Matt began the campaign for the 2016 primary a year in advance with a base of 23,000 voters.

“Members of Congress often think that results are a stack of bills they’ve written or co-sponsored.  These aren’t results.  Results are an actual sealed border.  Results are an actually defunded Planned Parenthood and a repealed Obamacare replaced with a market-based system,” says McCall.  Smith has a 60% lifetime conservative rating.

The 21st Congressional District encompasses parts of Bexar, Comal, Hays, and Travis counties and all of Kendall, Blanco, Gillespie, Kerr, Bandera, and Real counties.
