Additional comment from candidate:
Since 2009, it has been my honor to serve Texans on the Supreme Court of Texas. I am asking Voters for the opportunity to continue to bring my proven conservative judicial philosphy, judicial experience, superior credentials and strong work ethic to the Texas Supreme Court. You can count on me to uphold the Constitution and not legislate from the bench. Finally, you can depend on me to continue to serve with an unwavering commitment to excellence, fairness, integrity and efficiency. With gratitude and warmest regards, Eva
