Texas House Speaker Joe Straus has not endorsed Donald Trump and he said he doesn’t have plans to do it.

“I don’t think endorsing, or my activity at the top of the ticket is going to matter a bit,” Speaker Straus said in a one on one interview with Capital Tonight anchor Karina Kling at the RNC in Cleveland, Ohio.

“My focus is down ballot. I have this job to do and I take it 100 percent seriously.”

Straus is the chairman of the Republican Legislative Campaign Committee which works to get GOP lawmakers elected nationwide.

“There should be more focus and care and attention down ballot then ever before because of that unpredictability at the top,” Straus said.

Straus also talked about legislative priorities for the next session. Watch our full interview with him on Capital Tonight at 7pm.
