Texas State Senator Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound, was re-elected to the Texas Senate where she will continue to represent Senate District 12, encompassing portions of Denton and Tarrant counties.

"I will work every day to earn the trust the voters have placed in me, and I will continue to fight for the priorities of our community," Senator Nelson said. "Together we have built a Texas economy that is the envy of the nation.  We must protect our economic strength as we work to create jobs, improve education, streamline health and human services, and address transportation and other local priorities."

Senator Nelson is a former teacher and businesswoman who served two terms on the State Board of Education before her election to the Texas Senate. She serves as chair of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee and as a member of the Senate Finance Committee; Senate Nominations Committee; and Senate Government Organization Committee. She returns to the Senate as the dean of the Republican Caucus, the member with the most seniority.
