Martial arts master, actor and outspoken conservative Chuck Norris is an Oklahoma native who carved a public image for himself playing a Texas Ranger in a popular television series. Now, the Texas legislature has carved it into history.
As recognition of everything the actor has done for philanthropic causes and for the Lone Star State, the Texas Senate named him an “honorary Texan.”
The conservative Christian threw his support behind former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee early in the 2016 presidential race. After Huckabee dropped out of the race, he campaigned for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. But in the general election, Norris, 77, encouraged Republicans to vote for Donald Trump to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton.
He also campaigned for then Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott in the 2014 governor’s race, when Abbot crushed abortion-loving Democrat Wendy Davis by almost 1 million votes.
Senate Resolution 569 commending Norris for “his many contributions to our state” and declaring him an “honorary Texan” passed unanimously.
The resolution cited Norris’s philanthropy with organizations like the Make-a-Wish Foundation. It offered best wishes to Norris for continued success in all his endeavors and presented him with a copy of the resolution as a token of esteem from the state’s 85th legislature.
The Austin American-Statesman reported that Norris was presented the Senate gavel that used to declare the passage of the resolution which honored him and a flag that had flown over the Alamo.
The title seems fitting for the former star of the “Walker, Texas Ranger” TV series, which ran from 1993 until 2001. He was also made an honorary Texas Ranger in 2010.
We hope Norris enjoys the honor and continues doing the good work that has made him beloved of conservatives and famous among all Americans.
