David Covey is a proven conservative with a record of fighting for Republican principles and legislative Priorities.
Political outsider. Constitutional Conservative. Friend. David Covey, a native Texan, is ready to fight for the values of Southeast Texas in the Texas House of Representatives.
David has humbly served in a variety of volunteer capacities both in his community and within the Republican Party. As a Fire Commissioner, board member for the local chapter for Main Street Ministry, a non-profit which shelters homeless women, and Chairman of the Orange County Republican Party, David has poured into those around him to make his community a safer place for our children to grow up. When he is not dedicating his time to those around him or the fight for freedom, he works in the oil and gas industry in Orange, Texas. David is also a published author and earned his Juris Doctorate in his never-ending pursuit of knowledge, strengthening his faith in the Constitution and our other founding documents. David is a loving husband to his wife, Esther, and father to two sons.
David Covey is a conservative warrior who has proven repeatedly that he will stand up for us and the issues we care about. On the other hand, Austin politician Dade Phelan wants Texans to praise him for doing the bare minimum. He is not fooling us. We need a fighter in the legislature who will not give Democrats the power to push their radical agenda or use their own power to attack other Republicans.
Current Speaker Phelan has put corporations and a political agenda that favors Democrats ahead of the Southeast Texans he is supposed to represent. He dragged his feet on giving us property tax relief and border security. Even former President Trump noted that Speaker Phelan “is not fighting for the people of Texas.” He is beholden to special interest groups and lobbyists in Austin, not the people that elected him. He is more concerned with getting his name placed on buildings than ensuring the voices of his constituents are heard in the Texas Capitol. That stops March 5th.
David is well-known for his tenacity and dedication. He has even earned the support of his former opponent in the race for State Party Chairman, current GOP Chairman Matt Rinaldi, who said David “will consistently advocate for conservative priorities and won’t cozy up to the left or their allies.” That dedication and loyalty is something we have not seen from Speaker Phelan, and he must face the repercussions of failing to represent us well. David Covey is a hard-working, honest man that is ready to boldly represent all his constituents, conservative values, and the Constitution.
