LUBBOCK – Former State Representative and Candidate for House District 84 Jim Landtroop added to his impressive and growing list of conservative credentials today with the coveted Young Conservatives of Texas endorsement.

“As all of our endorsements, Jim Landtroop has been thoroughly vetted. Based on that process as well as his proven track record, we believe he will serve our state conservatively in the Texas House,” said Jeff Morris, YCT State Chairman. “We hope that the constituents of HD 84 will support him in the upcoming primary.”

“We here at the Texas Tech chapter of Young Conservatives of Texas are happy to help and support Jim Landtroop by block walking, getting signs out and everything else that makes a grassroots campaign work,” noted President of the Texas Tech Chapter of YCT Prince Phwitiko. “West Texans deserve conservative leadership and Jim Landtroop has a proven track record of being that type of representative. We are confident he will represent HD84 with excellence.”

In response to the endorsement, Landtroop said, “It’s a great honor to have the support of the Young Conservatives of Texas. This group of passionate conservatives put their principles into practice by being a grassroots team to be reckoned with in campaigns across the Lone Star state each and every cycle. Having their endorsement from the statewide organization is humbling, but having the local chapter block walk with me in two feet of snow means even more. Their commitment to making and keeping Texas great is contagious and I’m thankful they see me as an asset to that vision.”

Young Conservatives of Texas is a non-partisan organization that has promoted conservatism at universities across the Lone Start State for over three decades. The State’s most active political youth organization, YCT is composed of hundreds of members and alumni who participate in the full spectrum of politics. YCT issues the most respected ratings of the Texas legislature and is the only conservative group to have done so without interruption over the past 21 legislative sessions.
