Bill Ratliff Endorses Kevin Eltife

"My vote will go to Kevin Eltife."

Senate District 1 candidate Kevin Eltife received the endorsement of District 1 Senator Bill Ratliff today. The former lieutenant governor announced his endorsement today from his office in Mt. Pleasant. Former Tyler mayor Eltife says he's honored to have Ratliff's support.

"We've admired his work in the Senate for so many years and his service to the state," Eltife said. "And we're very excited to have his endorsement."

"He has brought together the disparate elements in Smith County like no one ever thought could happen," Ratliff said.

Ratliff emphasized his friendship with both Eltife and runoff contender Paul Sadler. However, Ratliff says he chose to endorse Eltife because Elitfe, like Ratliff, is a Republican.
