Elect Judge Ray Wheless

Republican Candidate for the Texas Court of Criminal of Criminal Appeals, Place 2

"We, the People, of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice... ."

Hello, I am Judge Ray Wheless, the Conservative Republican candidate for the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, Place 2.

Our forefathers made it very clear that the paramount goal of government is to establish Justice.  Without Justice, there can be no right to life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness.

There is no greater calling for a Judge than that of protector of these God given rights. If I am elected to this Court, I will uphold the plain language of the Texas Constitution and the United States Constitution as intended by our forefathers.

During the last fifteen years, I have had the honor of serving Texas as a trial court judge in Collin County, Texas presiding over criminal, civil and family law cases.  I am the only candidate in this race who has served as a prosecutor, been in private practice and served as a judge.  I am the only candidate who is double Board Certified and the only candidate who has tried both criminal and civil cases in both the Federal and State courts.  More importantly, I am the only candidate who has ever represented a person accused of a crime in an appeal to the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.

I am seeking this office so that I may continue to serve the citizens of Texas as an appellate judge with extensive experience hearing criminal cases at the County Court and District Court levels.

I would greatly appreciate your vote in the May 24, 2016 Republican run-off election, with early voting May 16-20.

Sincerely,

Judge Ray Wheless

"Judge Ray Wheless has dutifully served our community as a district court judge and conservative leader. He has the legal experience and judicial temperament imperative to serve on the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. It is my privilege to enthusiastically endorse Judge Wheless." - Senator Van Taylor
