Issue #1 | True Representation

Galatians 6:7-8

"Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life."


Running for office  is a very public thing. Every thought you have, every position you take on an issue is public, and you have to stand on your record. 


In one form, you are reaping what you sow. If you put politics ahead of the people, the people will rise and remove you. 


In 2016, my opponent put politics ahead of public service. He sowed division over discernment by casting the third of three votes to put a feud ahead of facts.  He helped lead the attack against Ken Paxton. When conservatives rallied behind Ken Paxton, my opponent rallied against him. He said he had no alternative except to vote yes to fund the investigators against Ken Paxton - but he did. Susan Fletcher was courageous and voted No while Keith Self capitulated. He was proven wrong by the 5th Court of Appeals which said the right course of action was to say No and to fight. Fighting is what leaders are supposed to do.


Then the vendetta moved to Angela Paxton by trying to prevent her victory over a radical left-wing Democrat in the November election. Unlike his fellow four Republican members of the Commissioners Court, Keith Self would not endorse a Republican when conservatives were trying to prevent a blue wave from hitting Collin County. Leaders fight, Keith Self did not. 


First was funding the investigation into Ken Paxton then  performing a disappearing act refusing to join conservatives by endorsing Senator Angela Paxton.  When the opportunity presented itself to correct his past errors he refused to join Texas' Conservative Leaders like Michael Quinn Sullivan, Matt Rinaldi, Abraham George, Donald Trump, and Ted Cruz who boldly stated that this was a political persecution of Ken Paxton. Instead, on his Facebook page, he said Dade Phelan and the Texas House RINOs "followed the rules" in the sham impeachment Ken Paxton. Keith Self tried to help end the career of our Attorney General.


His decision to join the establishment wing, a wing with the likes of Liz Cheney, over the will of his constituents shows a complete lack of discernment.


March 5th is the day to make sure Keith Self reaps what he has been sowing for almost a decade by choosing a new leader.  I have fully and unquestionably supported both Ken and Angela Paxton and Donald Trump throughout this difficult time.  Friends  are those people who you can count on in difficult times. I recognized these were attacks from the Uniparty against the two strongest conservative fighters. Ken Paxton is the greatest conservative Attorney General of my lifetime and Donald Trump a true conservative fighter in who transformed the Presidency and our party. My opponent simply did not. 


Two years ago, during the last job interview, 73% of CD3 voters told Keith Self "no thanks."  His promised to be a stronger leader and more conservative, based on an independent score, has proven to be a failed promise. His promise to represent his constituents has also proven to be a failed promise.


As your congressman, I will keep the promises I make to you. Period. I will always back Ken and Angela Paxton. I will always back President Donald Trump, who delivered on his promises during his first term in office. I will always promise to communicate with you and let you know where I stand on the issues. And most importantly, my promise to you is I will be back in the community working hard on your behalf to make CD3 the most conservative congressional district in Texas.


I humbly ask for your vote in the upcoming Republican primary.


God Bless,

John Porro


Texas 3rd Congressional District
