Conroe, February 1 – President Donald Trump endorsed State Representative Steve Toth, Republican of Conroe, as a “fighter for election integrity” who is seeking to bring about many other reforms, such as Toth’s major achievements to bring an end to the teaching of “critical race theory” in Texas public schools. Trump spoke to a crowd of more than 85,000 supporters at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds at a “Save America Rally” on Saturday, January 29, 2022.

The “Save America Rally” was the first of President Trump’s formal campaign events in the United States to work towards Republicans retaking the United States Senate and United States House of Representatives in the November, 2022, General Election. Texas Governor Greg Abbott, his major challenger former State Senator Don Huffines, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, Attorney General Ken Paxton, Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, and numerous members of the Texas Legislature joined President Trump at the major event.

Additionally, a number of United States Congressmen, including 8th Congressional District Congressman Kevin Brady, Republican of The Woodlands, also attended the event. Trump specifically thanked Brady for his work in the U.S. House.

Trump’s acknowledgment of Toth was particularly impressive, as Toth was the only member of the Texas House of Representatives to receive such acclaim during the event. Toth has been an ardent backer of Trump both before and after the 2020 General Election. Toth has argued that vote fraud resulted in a “stolen election” in November 2020.

In the 87th Legislative Session, Toth received a perfect 100% rating from The Golden Hammer and from the Young Conservatives of Texas. This newspaper named Toth the Montgomery County Person of the Year 2021. Texans for Fiscal Responsibility gave Toth a 94% rating, the third highest rating of any member of the Texas House. In that session and the subsequent special sessions, Toth led the fight to ban the teaching of “critical race theory” in Texas public schools.

Toth introduced legislation, which ultimately passed, to require the Texas Secretary of State to conduct a formal audit of the 2020 election in Texas. President Trump specifically endorsed Toth’s legislation.

In the 86th Legislative Session, Toth was the author of the JD Lambright Local Government Reform Act, which established an ethics commission in Montgomery County and Chambers County and which required county governments statewide to disclose their taxpayer-funded lobbying contracts on their official websites.

State Representative Cecil Bell, Republican of Magnolia, said of Toth, “Steve Toth is a fierce advocate and one of the hardest working members of the Texas Legislature. He never gives up and doesn’t shy away from seeking support for his controversial legislation even from members of the other political party.”
