Today, Governor Greg Abbott announced his endorsement of conservative State Representative Jay Dean in his bid for re-election to the House District 7 seat. The district covers Gregg and Upshur counties.

In his endorsement, Governor Abbott lauded Dean for his work ethic, principles, and leadership: "As a lifelong conservative, Jay Dean has been a tireless advocate for the values of faith, family, and fiscal responsibility," said Abbott. "Respected for his work in the House, Representative Dean continues to be a leader in maintaining the Texas brand of economic liberty and individual freedom.  I urge the voters in Gregg and Upshur counties to re-elect Representative Dean for another term."
In the Texas House, Jay Dean has built a solid reputation as an effective conservative legislator rooted in strong East Texas values and the principles of limited government. 
            "Texas is blessed to have the strong and principled leadership of Governor Abbott," said Dean. "He has a vision that will further unleash our great state's potential for liberty and prosperity, and I am grateful for his service. It has been my honor to represent our area and work to advance a conservative agenda that works for Texas families and our economy. I appreciate the Governor's recognition of what I accomplished in my first session, and I look forward to continuing to work for East Texas."
This endorsement joins a long list of conservative supporters including local community leaders and officeholders. Dean was elected to the Texas House in 2016 after defeating a primary challenger by 16 points. Dean has a perfect rating from the NRA and is endorsed by Texas Alliance for Life. He was recognized as a 2017 Conservative Champion by the Texas Conservative Coalition.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Texas A&M University-Commerce cornerback Yusef Sterling-Lowe has been named as a nominee for the Cliff Harris Award, as announced by the Little Rock Touchdown Club.  The Cliff Harris Award is presented to the nation's top small college defensive player from Division II, Division III, and the NAIA. Sterling-Lowe joins linebacker Brucks Saathoff as A&M-Commerce Lions nominated for the award.

Sterling-Lowe - a senior from Oakland, Calif. - was previously named a Second Team All-American by the American Football Coaches Association. The First Team All-Lone Star Conference selection has been one of the top cornerbacks in the nation in both pass and run defense. He has made 39 tackles with 7.5 tackles for loss, three interceptions, and nine total passes defended. In the National Semifinal win over Harding he had five solo tackles, two tackles for loss, and an interception. 

Sterling-Lowe and the Lions are preparing for Saturday's NCAA Division II National Championship Game. The 13-1 Lions will take on West Florida at Children's Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kan., at 5 p.m. that day. The game will be televised on ESPN2 and the WatchESPN app.

Finalists for the Cliff Harris Award will be announced next week, with the overall winner and each division's top vote-getter announced on December 23. They will also be honored at the Little Rock Touchdown Club's annual awards banquet in January.
