Scott Armey announces bid for TX-26 Congressional District Republican Primary

November 28, 2023

(CORINTH, Texas) -Lifelong conservative and former Denton County Judge, Scott Armey, officially declared his candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives in the 26th District of Texas, encompassing Denton, Cooke and part of Wise counties. As a conservative Republican, Armey brings a wealth of experience and a commitment to addressing the pressing issues facing the people of North Texas.

“As a lifelong resident of North Texas and the Texas 26th Congressional District, I have been truly
blessed to be a part of this rapidly growing, dynamic and thriving community for more than 50
years. I was raised here, graduated from the University of North Texas, served as Denton
County Judge and County Commissioner, and worked to preserve and promote the
conservative, Texas values that have guided our prosperity.”

“My policy platform is simple – Cut Spending. Reduce the Debt. Free the People. I believe that the most persistent threat facing the nation is the $34 Trillion national debt, and out-of-control Federal spending. Congress is solely responsible for this crisis and is the only body that can fix this ever-growing problem. As your representative, I have the track record, the understanding of the task at hand, and I have the lifelong commitment to our shared conservative values to lead the fight for spending cuts and reducing the national debt.”

Fiscal responsibility is also why Scott Armey supports a second term for President Donald
Trump. “President Trump promised to cut spending and reduce the debt in his second term,
and I believe he has earned the opportunity to do just that. To fulfill that promise, the President
must have not only support, but also action, from the U.S Congress. As the Member of
Congress from the Texas 26th District, I will work to ensure that we have a dozen spending cut
bills ready for President Trump to sign into law on January 20, 2025.”

A proven conservative, Scott Armey is dedicated to defending the Constitution, our freedoms
and our children. He supports free markets, closing and strengthening our borders by finishing
the border wall, prioritizing and respecting our military and law enforcement, preserving our 2nd
Amendment rights and protecting the right to life.

Armey was born in Sherman, Texas and has lived in Denton County and the 26th Congressional
district since 1972. A graduate of the University of North Texas, Armey was elected to serve as
Denton County Commissioner and Denton County Judge from 1992-2002.

Since leaving public office, Armey has built a career as a private wealth advisor with Ameriprise.
He is married to Carisa, a special education teacher with Lewisville ISD. They live in Corinth,
Texas and have twin daughters attending Texas A&M. Their son, Avery, graduated cum laude
from Texas Tech University in 2020 with degrees in Economics and Political Science. He passed
away later that year at the age of 22.
