Tonight, I had the honor of performing the coin flip at the Permian vs. Midland High football game at Ratliff Stadium in Odessa.

It was a special moment for me to be back on a high school football field, and brought back countless memories from 55 years ago—my senior year playing for the Permian Panthers, when my teammates and I donned our jerseys and went on to win the 1965 State Championship under the tutelage of Coach Gene Mayfield.

I cannot overstate the value of having spent a year with Coach Mayfield. The lessons he instilled in me proved to not only be useful in football, but have also carried over to dramatically impact me throughout my professional career as a CPA and as a Member of Congress.

Special thanks to Ector County ISD for the warm welcome back on the field!

As we continue to wait on the official certified results of the 2020 presidential election, I want to affirm that President Trump is well within his rights to pursue legal action to investigate any and all allegations of voter fraud.

Free and fair elections are an essential cornerstone of our republic, and Americans deserve to know that all legal votes were counted, while any illegal votes were not. If cases of fraud did occur, it is in America’s best interest to bring any evidence of wrongdoing to light and hold those who are responsible accountable for their actions.

Anyone who supports election integrity should not impede these investigations, but instead encourage them to move forward and restore the confidence of the voters.

Happy #VeteransDay! We can not fathom the sacrifice our military men and women surrender when they commit to serve these great United States. Their commitment to defend and protect our freedoms and liberties deserve endless praise. God Bless our veterans! Join me in reaching out to a veteran to thank them for their service. THANK YOU! 🇺🇸

This Veterans Day, we unveiled a memorial at the Wilson and Young Medal of Honor VA Clinic in honor of Freddie Mac Wilson and Marvin Rex Young, Odessa’s two Medal of Honor recipients, who both knowingly sacrificed their own lives in defense of their fellow man.

I was also able to present the bill passed by Congress and signed by President Trump that designates the clinic under the same name.

Now any veteran who visits the VA clinic can read the stories of these two heroes and rest in knowing that our community will never forget the sacrifice of all service members.

Thank you to all Veterans!

The three and four year olds at the Pre-K Academy did a great job of listening to “I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie” 🥧

They also swarmed me with a tsunami of hugs after we finished our great read. Thanks for inviting me to come read to y’all this morning! It was a blast.

Feast of Sharing may look different this year, but I am glad to see it will still go on. H-E-B is a fantastic & charitable company that all Texans should be proud of. Great job!

The 24th annual H-E-B Feast of Sharing is going to be served by drive-thru distribution in San Angelo in attempts to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

This is a great story to share for National First Responders Day. Thank you for your service Sergeant Pelt! You are truly a life saver.

Sergeant Eric Van Pelt - Life Saving Medal

On 10/17/2019, Sgt. Eric Van Pelt was off duty and traveling, in his personal vehicle, to Llano from Fredericksburg. At approximately 2100 hours, Sgt. Van Pelt came upon a vehicle that was on fire in the north bound lane.

Sgt. Van Pelt pulled his vehicle over and ran to the burning vehicle. He saw that the seatbelt was wrapped several times around the driver’s ankle, who was still partially in the front seat, and hanging upside down out of the driver’s side passenger door, due to the vehicle being rolled over at least one time during the crash.

Sgt. Van Pelt observed that the entire front portion of the vehicle was on fire, as well as the interior dashboard. He used his knife to cut the seatbelt, freeing the driver. He, along with another male subject, were able to pull the driver away from the vehicle before it became fully engulfed in flames.

Sgt. Van Pelt’s selfless and heroic efforts that night undoubtedly saved this person’s life.

Tony Lee Dill Obituary - Visitation & Funeral Information

Tony was a pillar in the West Texas agricultural community, a loving and kind son, husband, father, and grandfather, and above all, a man of God. I feel very fortunate to have counted Tony as a trusted friend and advisor throughout my time in Congress, and often relied on his knowledge and encouraging words as we defended America’s farm and ranch families.

Suzanne and I are praying for his family, as well as his many friends, during this dark time.

Conaway, Raskin, and Cicilline Introduce Legislation to Reform State Occupational Licensing Boards

This bill upholds oversight and accountability of the board as a whole without jeopardizing the personal property and liability of its individual members.

As a former Chairman of the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy, I have seen first-hand the important role these boards play in ensuring public trust and accountability.

Our nation needs qualified and professional board members who deserve to serve without putting their personal property at risk.

Since the 2015 ruling, there have been dozens of lawsuits brought against individual board members seeking antitrust treble damages for board actions and rulings. The Supreme Court decision and subsequent lawsuits are likely to produce a long-term corrosive effect on the maintenance of critical prof...

Biden: 'I would transition from the oil industry'

Former Vice President Biden's pledge to transition away from fossil fuels proves that Democrats are out of touch with reality. Our oil & gas industry is not only a critical component of Texas's economy, it is vital to American national security. We should be focused on pursuing policies that aim for an all-of-the-above energy strategy, and embrace the amazing technological gains we have seen as a result of our robust private energy sector.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden pledged to transition away from fossil fuels Thursday night while defending a climate plan that does not ban fracking.

WOW! Great work Lexi 👏🏻

Absolutely Amazing! Look at the detail!
Thank you to Lexi Haag for volunteering her time to paint the Jungle accent wall in one of the four CPS parent and children visitation rooms.

This wall was previously just a gray wall for many years and now Lexi has brought it to life! The children love looking for the different animals and naming what they find. There is a realness and warmth to the animals and jungle which they love. This amazing design will provide great memories and a better experience for the children and families. ❤️

Lexi is a talented artist who drove to San Angelo on the weekend just to paint this design. She is also a student at Texas Tech University working towards her Bachelors degree in Landscape Architecture. She does artwork on the side through, ‘Lexi Haag Fine Art.’
She stated that she wanted to help with this project because it was a special and rare opportunity to help children in need. She knew that painting this design would have such a powerful role in brightening up the life of children and their families and that made her want to help even more. 💜

⭐️ Thank you Lexi, you make a Difference!
You can follow her on Facebook at:

(Stay tuned: this is one of four rooms being remodeled through the Rainbow Room. Each one will be showcased with a different artist this week.)

Conaway: Latest Liberal Spending Spree Leaves America Behind

I just voted against the latest multi-trillion dollar Democrat wish list.

Yet again, Democrats refuse to come to the negotiating table on COVID-19 response legislation. The latest $2.2 trillion socialist spending spree includes funding for every liberal request under the sun, but doesn’t make the simple legislative fix to allow hardworking small business owners to access leftover Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funds that are currently sitting untouched. I’m no longer surprised by their antics and misplaced priorities, but it sure is discouraging to watch this charade carry on while the American people suffer.

Vladimir Putin's regime has unjustly sentenced Texan and Marine Corps Veteran Trevor Reed to nine years in a Russian prison on baseless charges, and I introduced H.Res. 1115 calling for his release.

Congressman Mike Conaway and the Diet Coke Challenge

When I am on the grind traveling across #TX11, there is nothing like popping in a small town convenience store to grab an ice cold aluminum can of #DietCoke. I've just always preferred a can over a bottle. Even my colleagues in Washington DC know what fuels this beast.

I am such a fan of this beverage, my staff believes I have the ability to distinguish what KIND of Diet Coke I'm drinking-- fountain drink, aluminum can, or plastic bottle. Check out the results in this #friday recap!

Do you have a favorite drink when you're on the road? Share in the comments below!
