“Congressman Wright was a pillar and political powerhouse in the community,” said family spokesman Matt Langston. “His legacy is a rarity in today’s political environment, where he prioritized working towards what is best for the country and not talking cheap political rhetoric. His incredible wife, Susan Wright, was by his side and consistently worked with him to better his constituents’ lives and the men and women across Texas. Please continue to keep Susan and the entire Wright family in your prayers.”
