Craig Goldman Endorsed by Former Secretary of Energy and Former Governor Rick Perry

January 16, 2024

(Fort Worth) – Today, Republican small businessman Craig Goldman announced the endorsement of Rick Perry, former Secretary of Energy in the Trump Administration and former Texas Governor.

Secretary Perry stated, “The strong, robust Texas economy didn’t happen by accident.  It was built by conservative champions like Craig Goldman, who stood his ground against liberal Democrats to pass policies in support of taxpayers and hard working families. Craig has been a staunch advocate for tough border security measures, a defender of the Second Amendment and the unborn, and a strong ally of law enforcement as they work to keep us safe. We need my friend Craig Goldman in Congress to continue those fights, and I plan to help him get there.”

Secretary Perry’s endorsement adds to a long list of key endorsements for Goldman, including Governor Greg Abbott; State Senators Phil King, Kelly Hancock, Drew Springer, Tan Parker, and Brian Birdwell; Fort Worth Mayor Mattie Parker; State Representatives Giovanni Capriglione, David Cook, Charlie Geren, and Stephanie Klick; former State Representative Matt Krause; and Tarrant County Commissioner Manny Ramirez.

A small businessman, 4 th generation Fort Worth native and Republican leader, Goldman has a long record of authoring and working to pass sweeping conservative legislation that has made Texas the national model for conservative governance. For more information, or to donate to Craig’s campaign, visit
