RMSP Super PAC supports Jake Ellzey’s successful bid for TX-06 seat in runoff
The Republican Main Street Partnership congratulates Navy veteran Jake Ellzey, who won a special election July 27 to represent the Sixth Congressional District and looks forward to having him become part of RMSP.
RMSP’s Defending Main Street Super PAC spent more than $100,000 supporting Ellzey through canvassing and polling efforts.
"One of the things that we've seen from this campaign is a positive outlook — a Reagan Republican outlook for the future of our country — is what the people of the 6th District really, really want," Ellzey said, according to the Texas Tribune.
"Jake Ellzey will be a fighter for Texas' Sixth Congressional District, and we congratulate him on his victory," said RMSP President Sarah Chamberlain. "We're proud of Defending Main Street's grassroots effort to support his candidacy, and we look forward to Congressman Ellzey's service in Congress."
Commander Ellzey served as a fighter pilot, completing 20 years of service as the Air Boss on the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier. Ellzey, a state representative from Waxahachie, was deployed nine times during his military career, including five combat tours by air and one by ground with Seal Team 5, and received two Bronze Stars and eight Air Medals. He served Texas as a commissioner on the Texas Veterans Commission and recently served as a commercial airline pilot based out of DFW.
A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Jake and his wife Shelby are raising their two children on 10 acres in Ellis County. TX-06 includes Ellis, Navarro and parts of Tarrant counties.
“In the final analysis, we felt that Jake would work for bipartisanship while fiercely protecting traditional Republican values of fiscal conservativism and social inclusiveness and that drove our decision to support him,” Chamberlain said.
Defending Main Street Super PAC is the Super PAC for the Republican Main Street Partnership. It is one of the nation’s most effective independent-expenditure organizations. The races we enter are in key, contested districts across the country that are crucial to securing a Republican majority in Congress.
