Landgraf to run for re-election as state representative

ODESSA — State Representative Brooks Landgraf (R-Odessa) issued the following statement announcing his plans to run for re-election to the Texas House of Representatives.

“With a heart full of gratitude, I’ll be asking my fellow West Texans to send me back to the Texas House of Representatives in the 2022 election to serve as our state representative,” Landgraf said. 

Landgraf’s announcement is in response to speculation that he would be running for a seat in the Texas Senate.

“I was born and raised in West Texas. I will never stop fighting for West Texas and the Texas House of Representative is where I can best fight for us and our conservative values,” Landgraf said. “We’ve made the voice of West Texas as strong as it has ever been in the Texas Capitol, and we’re not done yet.”

Brooks Landgraf has been recognized by multiple conservative groups for his efforts in the Texas Legislature to promote life, defend Texans' constitutional rights, cut taxes, secure the border and to fight federal overreach. In addition to being a conservative leader, Brooks has a steadfast reputation at the Capitol as a lawmaker who fights for West Texas. 

Brooks continues to fight for common-sense, conservative solutions that protect the rights of law-abiding Texans and prioritize individual liberty. As chairman of the House Environmental Regulation Committee, Brooks is on the frontlines protecting the Texas oil and gas industry—and the West Texans who power it—from federal overreach by the Biden Administration and liberal Democrats who’ve infiltrated Texas. 

“With your vote and prayerful support, I’ll keep my nose to the grindstone, pounding the pavement and serving as a megaphone for West Texans at the state Capitol—the way that I have since day one,” Landgraf said.

Brooks is a native son of Odessa whose family has been ranching in West Texas for five generations. He and his wife, Shelby, have one daughter, Hollis Rose. They enjoy volunteering together for local charities, and the family loves spending time together working on the family cattle ranch. They attend church at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Odessa.
