Voters Oppose Private School Vouchers

State Sen. Kel Seliger (R-Amarillo) believes that voters agree with his opposition to private school vouchers, and the midterm election results show it.

He recently reminded the audience at a legislative preview in Austin that he was one of two Republicans in the Texas Senate to vote against private school voucher legislation in 2017. Seliger easily defeated two opponents in the primary election and one person in the midlterm election in November.

“What I tell them is first and foremost represent your district,” he said of his conversations with Republican lawmakers. “No matter what you are told by other people here or third-party groups, listen to the people in your districts.”
