The Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee has endorsed state Sen. Ken Paxton, R-McKinney, a candidate for attorney general.

Senator Ken Paxton listens to a supporter following his announcement to run for Attorney General on Thursday, August 1, 2013.

The Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee has endorsed state Sen. Ken Paxton, R-McKinney, a candidate for attorney general.

The committee is associated with the national anti-abortion group Concerned Women for America, which claims about 26,000 Texas members out of about 500,000 nationally.

In a statement released Monday, Michelle Smith, the state director of Concerned Women for America of Texas, said, "When I think of the type of person we need as Attorney General for the greatest state in the union, I firmly believe we need someone who is unashamed to stand strong for the cause of conservatism and liberty in Texas."

Paxton is running against state Rep. Dan Branch, R-Dallas, and Texas Railroad Commission Chairman Barry Smitherman in the Republican primary.
