Doctors back Rep. Matt Schaefer

Posted: Updated:

TYLER (KYTX) -  State Representative Matt Schaefer has quite a few doctors in his corner as he continues to campaign to keep his seat.


About a dozen East Texas doctors headed to the Schaefer campaign headquarters Sunday. They met with Schaefer and officially announced their support for his re-election bid for District 6.

"Many doctors right here in Tyler do trust me and my principles, so that when I go down to Austin I'm going to make good decision that's going to be good for patients, nurses and doctors." says Schaefer.


"He knows what it's like to put on the uniform and have  boots on the ground. So, when he talks about protecting our borders, he really knows what he's talking about. But, I think the big  thing in this race, Matt Schaefer is a man of principle." says Dr. Doug Flanders.

Early voting for the primary runs until Friday. Election day is March 4.
