Sid Miller endorsed by Governor Rick Perry for AG Commissioner

Texas Governor and former two-term Agriculture Commissioner says Miller is the best candidate to look out for Texas’ farmers and ranchers


Austin, TX – WEBWIRE – Wednesday, May 21, 2014

As a former Texas Agriculture Commissioner myself, I know how critical this position is for the hardworking farmers and ranchers across our state," said Governor Perry. "I have worked closely with Sid for nearly 15 years and he is the real deal, a proven and trusted conservative leader who has fought hard to build the Texas economy, create jobs and opportunities for Texans, and defend our constitutional freedoms and personal liberties."

Candidate for Ag Commissioner Sid Miller today announced that he has received the endorsement of Governor Rick Perry in the Republican run-off for Texas Agriculture Commissioner. In making his endorsement, Governor Perry said Miller is the best candidate to look out for Texas’ farmers and ranchers.

As a former Texas Agriculture Commissioner myself, I know how critical this position is for the hardworking farmers and ranchers across our state,“ said Governor Perry. ”I have worked closely with Sid for nearly 15 years and he is the real deal, a proven and trusted conservative leader who has fought hard to build the Texas economy, create jobs and opportunities for Texans, and defend our constitutional freedoms and personal liberties"

Miller said that he was humbled by Perry’s endorsement. 

“Rick Perry understands the importance of the office of Ag Commissioner better than anyone in Texas and I am honored to have his support for my campaign,” Miller said. 

Governor Perry has for the most part stayed out of political races in this campaign cycle and with the exception of endorsements for his three appointees to the Texas Supreme Court endorsed no statewide candidates in the primary election that was held on March 4th. In the Republican Primary run-off election, to be held on May 27th, Perry has endorsed no candidate other than Miller. 

Perry has even taken the unusual step of recording a special video in which he personally announces his endorsement of Miller to be the state’s next Ag Chief.

Sid Miller, who holds a BS degree in Vocational Agriculture Education and is a former vocational agriculture teacher, served for six terms in the Texas House of Representatives where he was consistently named one of the top ten conservatives in the legislature.

In addition to his endorsement by Governor Perry, Miller has also been endorsed by virtually every agriculture related organization in the state which has made endorsements in the May 27th Republican Primary run-off race. They include: the TX Cattle Feeders Association, the TX Quarter Horse Association, the TX Agriculture Aviation Association, the Exotic Wildlife Association, the TX Association of Dairymen, the TX Nursery and Landscape Association, the TX Wildlife Association, the TX Cotton Association, the TX Agriculture Cooperative Council, the TX Olive Oil Association, the TX Rainwater Catchment Association, the TX Veterinary Medical Association, Lone Star Milk Producers, the Sportsmen’s & Animal Owners’ Voting Alliance, the TX Food Processors Association, the TX Grain Sorghum Association, and the TX Independent Ginners Association.
