2016 Republican Primary Endorsements for Court #1


I am delighted to endorse Judge Clyde Leuchtag for Judge of Harris County Civil Court at Law 1.  

Unanimously appointed by Commissioners Court to the same court in which I had the privilege of serving the citizens of Harris County for over a decade, Judge Clyde Leuchtag is a highly qualified and God-fearing man who has paid his dues and deserves our support.  He paid his dues as a precinct chair for 19 years. He paid his dues as an attorney by skillfully representing Harris County for 18 years and representing the public before that as an attorney at the prestigious Baker Botts law firm.  Judge Leuchtag also paid his educational dues as a graduate of Rice University and a magna cum laude graduate of South Texas College of Law. 

Therefore, let’s keep Judge Clyde Leuchtag as judge of Harris County Civil Court at Law #1 

 — Commissioner R. Jack Cagle

My friend Clyde Leuchtag has worked with me at the County, protecting the interests of the taxpayers.  He will continue to protect the citizens of Harris County as the judge in County Civil Court #1

— Chris Daniel, Harris County District Clerk

"Thanks for being such a good judge."


— County Judge Ed Emmett

I enthusiastically endorse my friend Judge Clyde Leuchtag for County Civil Court at Law #1.  I have known Clyde since 2002 and know him to be a committed conservative who will represent the citizens of Harris County with honor and integrity.

After much consideration, it is my pleasure to offer my endorsement and support to Judge Clyde Leuchtag, who is the Republican judge of Harris County Civil Court at Law #1. Judge Leuchtag deserves the highest consideration given his history of consistent, fair, impartial, and studious commitment in jurisprudence as an Attorney and Judge.

In interviewing his peers and reviewing his judicial and political records, Judge Leuchtag is well respected as a bona fide Conservative Jurist, with years of judicial experience. Such qualifications are needed in a time where Conservative Jurists are needed in our Great State.  Judge Leuchtag is the right choice for our Party and deserves our Nomination for Harris County Civil Court at Law #1.

As a long time Conservative, Judge Leuchtag's commitment to Faith, Family, and Freedom clearly espouses the highest commitment to the Republican Party platform. This is a key element in considering only our finest nominees for public office.

I encourage you to join me in supporting Judge Clyde Leuchtag!
