Texas Health Care Association PAC endorses Cody Harris for House District 8

Skilled nursing providers backing candidates who will stand up for Texas seniors


(AUSTIN, TEXAS) — The political action committee representing skilled nursing and assisted living facilities across Texas today announced their endorsement of Cody Harris in the GOP runoff for Texas House District 8.

“Decisions made in Austin help determine the quality of long term care across the state,” said Kevin Warren, president and CEO of the Texas Health Care Association. “The Texas Health Care Association PAC stands behind candidates who have indicated their willingness to stand up for senior Texans, and we are putting our support behind Cody Harris for House District 8.”

House District 8 is being vacated by retiring Texas House State Affairs Committee Chairman Byron Cook, R-Corsicana.

The long term care industry employs more than 110,000 Texans, paying more than $4 billion in direct wages every year.

“Families with a loved one in a long term care facility should know that Cody Harris will be looking out for them in Austin,” Warren said. “THCAPAC works hard to make sure that’s the case.”
