Meet Wesley Virdell
Born and raised in the heart of Texas, Wesley Virdell is a veteran and small business owner in the Transportation Industry. Like many hardworking Texans, Wesley places a priority on faith, family, and freedom.
A few short years after graduating from Brady High School in 1998, Wesley served in the U.S. Air Force where he worked on Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles and served as a Military Training Leader.
Equipped with proven leadership, experience, and a love for Texas values, Wesley ran for Texas’ 11th Congressional District in 2020. Beating all odds in a $3.4M race, he made quite a statement when he placed third out of ten candidates while spending the least per vote.
A 2020 State Delegate for the RPT and 2020 National Delegate for the RNC, Wesley now serves as the Texas Hill Country Coordinator for Gun Owners of America.
Wesley and his wife of 19 years, Sara, live in Brady, TX, and have three boys: Van, 17, Madden, 15, and Kingston, 10.
After watching TX Rep. Andrew Murr remain silent while big government mandated masks, shut down businesses, and destroy family incomes, Wesley decided to take action.
With the support of his family and countless liberty-loving Texas patriots, Wesley has announced his candidacy for Texas State House Representative in HD53 and vows to put Texas First by fighting for more liberty and less government.

“Andrew Murr has remained silent as bureaucrats and big government tyrants mandated masks, shut down businesses, and destroyed family incomes. Texas deserves a representative who will engage the community and stand up for personal liberty and fight against government tyranny.
But I need your help. Would consider making a contribution today?”
As the Gun Owners of America Texas Hill Country Coordinator, a competitive shooter, and a hunter, I will never allow the government to take away the inalienable right to own a firearm and the right to defend yourself and your family. The 2nd Amendment is a restriction on the government. It is not a restriction on the citizen.
I will always fight for the life of the innocent. It is our moral duty to fight for those who can’t defend themselves. I will never be ashamed of standing up for the unborn.
Unlike my opponent who voted to reduce voter fraud penalties from a felony to a misdemeanor, I will fight to increase penalties for voter fraud. If we can’t trust our elections to be accurate, we can’t trust our government at all.
Protect the Border
We cannot have a sovereign nation if we don’t have a secure border. We must stand up to Mexico and show we have the strength to defend our border. Until our neighbors to the south take us seriously, we will continue to be trampled on. For two years, my opponent has remained dead silent on these issues and it is time that we have a Representative that will stand up and fight for the border.
End Property Taxes
Property Tax is one of the most egregious forms of taxation. Repeatedly paying a tax on our property means we are merely renting our house from the government. If we follow the principle of liberty, the government has no authority over our property.
No liberty-loving Texan would ever support such an abuse of power. Our government told citizens that their jobs were non-essential. They told business owners that they didn’t have the right to choose how and when they operate their businesses. They forced children and other citizens to wear useless mask against their will. My opponent has remained dead silent over the last two years about the abuses of government and he didn’t stand up for us when we needed a leader to do so. Unlike my opponent, I will take a public stand against tyranny. When you are blessed with the platform to stand up for your fellow man and you remain silent, you are as guilty as the tyrant himself.
