BREAKING: Chris Kyle’s Widow Enters Political Race
March 1, 2016 1:08pm PST
Taya Kyle, widow of the American Sniper himself, Chris Kyle, has officially entered politics and is currently campaigning for sheriff in her local Texas town.
According to Daily Mail, Taya is acting as campaign treasurer for Bill Waybourn, a Republican opponent of longtime Tarrant County Sheriff Dee Anderson, who is also a Republican and is running for his fifth and final term as sheriff. The race will end in a vote today.
“I endorse Bill Waybourn for Sheriff, because he is the only man Chris wanted to work for, and because he is a good man who serves those who serve us,” she wrote on Waybourn’s website.
This isn’t the first time Taya has involved herself in politics. Last year, she spoke out to endorse Rick Perry in his failed bid for the GOP presidential nomination. We hope this is a sign that Taya will run for office on her own someday!
