Linda Vega Receives an Endorsement

Austin, Texas: Erick Wyatt, a candidate for U.S. Senate in Texas, announced today that he will no longer seek the office held by Senator John Cornyn.

Mr. Wyatt stated, “Effective immediately, I am stopping my campaign to spend more time with my family. I will continue to be an advocate for military, veterans, and families of the fallen.”

Mr. Wyatt also announced the endorsement of his opponent, Linda Vega, a Houston resident. Mr. Wyatt said he has “met with Linda and had multiple conversations with her over the last week. I have decided that she and I share the same point of view on most political topics. Linda is very active when it comes to military rights and that weighs heavily on my heart as a 15-year combat veteran, and as a husband of a Navy veteran who lost her first husband in Operation Iraqi Freedom.” He also said he plans “to meet with Ms Vega and her team in the near future to see how I can help her campaign.”

Mr. Wyatt has been campaigning across the state of Texas for the last eight months. He thanks everyone for the support given to him during that time, and he encourages everyone to check out Linda Vega, as an alternative to Senator Cornyn.
