Robertson, Arrington have months to convince voters

Posted: Updated:

Glen Robertson and Jodey Arrington will be in a runoff for the District 19 19 Republican primary May 24.

Each will fight for a share of the more than 50 percent of votes Michael Bob Starr drew in Taylor County, which includes Abilene. 

"The message is going to be the same," Robertson said. "We are going to talk about the same issues, ag and energy. We are going to be talking about water, we are going to talk about jobs in the economy. Issues like immigration and national security.

"With two people we can have more in-depth debates where we can really drill down and the voters can see who has a really good grasp on these issues." Robertson said.

Arrington said "I want to be part of the next conservative leaders that goes to Washington, says what he's going to do and starts moving the ship around so that my children, and the folks that are listening's children can grow up in a strong, safe and free America. That's our message, we're going to stick to that."

Arrington says he's going to maintain a positive message, unless he has to correct the record.

"When a candidate puts out distortions of the truth or plays dirty politics, we'll set the record straight," Arrington said. "But we're gonna keep it about our vision, for the kind of leadership and representation that West Texas needs and deserves."

Robertson said the election results were in-line with the polling his campaign had done leading up to Super Tuesday. He's not taking a break from the campaign trail.

"You just hit the ground running in the morning," Robertson said. "We're going to be working as hard as we have for the last five months for the next three months. Try and get into all the communities in the 29 counties and just get in front of people and re-affirming the message."
