Friends and Neighbors,

We did it!! Thank you for your tireless efforts and support in getting me onto the official ballot for November 6th. The Texas Secretary of State made it official on Wednesday – and many of you have asked me, “why are you just getting on the ballot now?”

As an Independent candidate, I had to jump through a different set of hoops than party candidates. While the parties had their primaries in March, Independents had to file last fall and then wait to get their signatures between March 7th and June 21st. That is why we were in signature mode over the past month.

Last week, my wife, Jen, hand-delivered the filing in Austin with well over the 500 required signatures needed. The Secretary of State then validated each of those names before confirming that my filing was accepted. That is why we are just finding out now that it is official!

I knew all along that we would get to this moment - because I am surrounded by an incredible team of friends and volunteers and supporters and family who made sure this would happen. Now it is onward and upward to the November 6th general election.

Let me add one fun fact. In the entire state of Texas, there are only eight people running as independent candidates. Seven of them are running for the US Congress, and only one of them, ME, is running for the Texas State House.

Out of 150 representative districts, ONLY East Texas has the chance to vote for an Independent candidate. ONLY East Texas has the opportunity to push back against the political extremism and ineffectiveness that has been the hallmark of our current state representative.

In honor of this milestone, please join me in making a donation to this historic campaign. This Saturday at midnight is the financial filing deadline for the first half of the year. No matter where you live in the United States, you are able to make a donation simply by clicking here. We are moving toward victory.

I am truly humbled by all of the support and energy as I move forward.

To peace,
Neal
