Sen. John Cornyn, R-San Antonio
Ron has served Texans in Congress with distinction for nearly 24 years as a fierce advocate for a more limited government. His steadfast devotion to his core beliefs has earned him the respect and loyalty from Texans and Americans of all walks of life.

I congratulate Ron on his remarkable congressional career, and wish him and Carol the very best in their future endeavors.

Rep. Gene Green, D-Houston
Ron has served honorably for different terms during the last 4 decades representing our area.

Rep. Pete Olson, R-Sugar Land
When he retires from Congress, Ron Paul will leave a legacy of principled leadership. As we say in the Navy, I wish Ron “Fair winds and following seas.”

Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Houston
Ron Paul is a true and honest intellectual in the House and a good friend. In many respects his policies turned out to be very visionary on the core role of the federal government and spending.

Rep. Larry Taylor, R-Friendswood
Congressman Paul’s announcement today not to seek re-election has created a rare opportunity for public service at the national level.
I have received encouragement from conservative leaders across Texas this afternoon. It is an opportunity that I will consider very seriously in the coming weeks
