HOUSTON—On December 3, 2013 at Harris County Republican Party Headquarters, with his wife Bergundi by his side, Briscoe Cain filed to run for the Republican nomination for State Representative in District 129, the seat where incumbent State Representative John Davis is not seeking re-election.
“I am running for State Representative to be a fresh, current, relevant conservative voice for District 129 and ensure that our conservative principles, our states’ rights and our ability to create jobs for our area and for Texas are not compromised in the Texas Legislature. I am committed to pursuing initiatives that support faith, family and freedom, and not to let down our guard against the persistent onslaught of the Obama administration,” said Cain.
“This is a serious time for our state and our country, and Texas must continue to lead the way. We have to get it right–for now and for the future–and our district must lead in this pursuit,” Cain continued.
As an attorney, Cain has offered countless hours of pro-bono time to helping conservative organizations craft legislation that supports the Constitution and conservative values, such as our freedom of speech, religious liberty and the protection of the unborn. A strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment, the organization American Gun Rights has said, “Briscoe Cain is exactly the kind of Second Amendment advocate Texans need in Austin.”
Cain’s family roots in Texas run deep. His lineal ancestor, Andrew Briscoe, fought for the Texian Army and was signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence. Cain was born in Webster and raised in Deer Park where his father works as a refining plant operator.
Cain, his wife Bergundi, and their son, Briscoe, live in Seabrook and are also excited to announce baby Briscoe will be a big brother to a new addition to the family next summer. The Cain family worships at Greater Harvest Community Church where they serve as members of the choir.
High-profile endorsements include local and national conservative leaders, such as the Honorable Paul Pressler, Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, Dr. Paul S. Teller, Executive Director of the U.S. House Republican Study Committee, Dr. Ted Baehr, Chairman and CEO of the Christian Film and Television CommissionTM, the National Organization for Marriage, Senate District 11 Chairman Travis Bryan, precinct chairs and local influencers.
A graduate of University of Houston-Downtown with a Juris Doctorate from South Texas College of Law, Cain is licensed to practice law in the State of Texas and focuses primarily on family and religious liberty law. Among other contributions, Cain currently serves as Texas Legal Counsel for Operation Rescue and as Chairman of the Harris County Republican Party’s Conservative Coalitions Committee. Cain is a two-time Delegate to the Republican State Convention, has worked as an Election Judge and on state wide campaigns, and traveled as a volunteer for Gov. Rick Perry in the Iowa Caucus.
Texas House District 129 encompasses the cities of Clear Lake, El Lago, Taylor Lake Village, Nassau Bay, Webster, Seabrook, Shoreacres and parts of Friendswood, Pasadena, Houston, Pearland, League City and La Porte.
