We need Tan Parker’s proven record in the Texas Senate
Flower Mound, TX – Tan Parker, Texas State Representative and conservative Republican candidate for Texas State Senate District 12, released his newest TV ad.

Thank you, Governor Greg Abbott, for your support of House Bill 2298, which I authored to establish January 28th as Sexual Assault Survivors Day in Texas! Together we can help survivors know that they are not alone – we honor, see and hear them.

What’s happening in Afghanistan is an unfolding tragedy that was not only foreseeable but preventable. It’s also strongly reminiscent of the Biden administration’s failures right here at home on our southern border.
As former President Trump outlined, American troops should have been brought home long ago once an agreement for their departure had been reached, and security agreements to protect the civilian population had been finalized.
The continuing presence of American troops sent the clear message that the Afghan government was not yet ready to stand on its own and served to motivate radicals who worked to bring about the resurgence of the Taliban. Leaving behind numerous Afghans who stood by our forces and aided our efforts in the hands of the Taliban is unforgivable, and we had a duty to protect and extract them.
Likewise, we have a duty to communities along the Texas border – communities and citizens who have been left behind by the federal government to bear the weight of drug smuggling, human trafficking and violence all on their own. This was not a crisis that materialized overnight, but like Afghanistan was a slowly developing disaster that could have been prevented.
Watching the haphazard withdrawal from Afghanistan throws into sharp relief the failures of planning and coordination by our President. We allowed an inexcusable amount of American military equipment and technology to fall into the hands of the Taliban and other terrorists to use against the Afghan people and others in the region.
Worst of all, the breathtaking fall of Afghanistan is by far the most consequential foreign policy crisis Americans have experienced since the Iranian hostage crisis and President Carter’s failed rescue attempt. American allies around the world are now seeing that Biden’s America is one that cannot be trusted or counted on.
This is something that Texas has already come to understand and know. We are leading on solving the crisis at our border because Washington can’t and won’t. What we’ve seen happen in Afghanistan is just another example of the failure of the Biden administration – and we’re only 210 days in.
I’m Tan Parker, and I’m honored to represent my home county in the Texas Legislature. North Texas is a special place, with a long history of innovation, growth, opportunity, and prosperity that gives America and the world hope and confidence that the future will be better and brighter in the days to come and that the possibilities for our children and their children can truly be limitless.
It will happen when we work together. The 12th District of the Texas Senate needs a strong Conservative with a proven record to keep the charge, and to help build that brighter future for all Texans.
It’s about putting our families first, creating ways to make sure government works for the citizens, and upholding the values that have made Texas the beacon of opportunity, freedom, and independence across America and around the world.
That’s why I’m running – and I know that I’m not alone. I’m humbled to be blessed with your support as my family and I answer the call to help lead the charge. I’ll be honored to have you join me on this journey to keep Texas Strong. Thank you and may God continue to Bless you and the Great State of Texas.
