Texas Senate names Chuck Norris honorary Texan

Texas (AP) — The Texas Senate has named Chuck Norris an honorary Texan — especially fitting for the former star of “Walker, Texas Ranger.”

The actor and his wife, Gena, appeared in the chamber on Tuesday. Norris has acted in many action and martial arts films over the decades, in addition to playing the title character in the “Walker” TV series from 1993 until 2001.

Norris, who’s 77, was born in Oklahoma but has lived in Texas. A conservative Christian, he’s campaigned for some of the state’s top Republicans, including with U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz during his White House run last year, and with now-Gov. Greg Abbott in 2014.

For more than a decade, Norris has been the center of popular online jokes attributing superhuman strength and impossible feats to him.
