After suspending her campaign for the Republican nomination, Chevalier throws her support behind Greg Hill.

PEARLAND, TX – Republican and Retired Army Major Keli Chevalier has suspended her campaign for Texas’ 22nd Congressional District and endorsed Greg Hill in the Republican Primary.  Chevalier, the only African American in the Republican Primary, cited Hill’s deep roots in the district and his unwavering commitment to representing all of the voters in District 22.

“While I am saddened that my campaign is over, I am proud to throw my support to Greg Hill in the Republican Primary,” said Chevalier.  “It’s critical that we have a strong voice in Congress who is from the district, understands the issues we face, and will fight for every single voter, regardless of race or socioeconomic status.  I have known Greg, and I am confident he is the best candidate.  I encourage my friends and supporters to vote for Greg Hill in the Republican Primary.”

A lifelong Republican and district resident, Greg served as a U.S. Border Patrol agent before returning home and serving three terms on the Pearland City Council. In 2018, Hill ran for Brazoria County Court-at-Law Judge and was one of the top voter getters, receiving more votes than any of the Republican statewide candidates.

“I want to thank Keli for her support and for her service to our Country and our community,” said Hill.  “She is a great representative for our party and an even better person.  Keli has an incredibly bright future, and I look forward to working with her to grow the Republican Party and fight to ensure our Veterans and our service men and women have the resources they need to keep our country safe.”
