Dallas, TX – Dallas Cowboys legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Roger Staubach and his wife Marianne endorsed State Rep. Eric Johnson on Tuesday to serve as the next Mayor of Dallas.

“We believe Eric Johnson is the leader that Dallas needs for the future,” Mr. and Mrs. Staubach said. “Eric is the person who can build the expansive coalitions needed to achieve great things for Dallas. We are proud to support him.”

Rep. Johnson finished in first place among nine mayoral candidates on May 4, advancing to a two-person runoff on June 8. Early voting in the runoff election began Tuesday and will last until June 4.

“I am beyond honored to receive this endorsement,” Rep. Johnson said. “The Staubach family has made an enormous contribution to Dallas for many years. Our city would not be the remarkable place it is today without this wonderful couple. I am grateful for the Staubachs’ support and for the countless ways they have made life better for the people of Dallas.”

Rep. Johnson has represented Dallas-based District 100 in the Texas House of Representatives since 2010. He has been a leading voice for expanding access to early childhood education, fighting public corruption, funding much-needed street repairs, and improving public safety.

Rep. Johnson has been a practicing lawyer in Dallas for the past fifteen years. He and his wife, Nikki, have two sons, William and George.
