State Rep. Pat Fallon said most Wichita Falls firefighters will vote for him at the ballot box Nov. 6 even though their association endorsed his Democratic opponent who is one of their own, Kevin Lopez of Bridgeport, in the state Senate District 30 race.
The Wichita Falls Professional Firefighters Association has “a few liberals, obviously,” and “endorsed a liberal Democrat that’s for open borders and for sanctuary cities,” Fallon, R-Prosper, said Wednesday in Wichita Falls.
Lopez, a member of the Arlington Fire Department, disagreed with Fallon’s take.
“As usual, Pat is trying to stir the pot and divide Texans,” Lopez said in a statement. “And he’s not even telling the truth.”
Lopez said he is “strongly in favor of secure borders for Texas to discourage illegal immigration.”
