Whitmire on Jackson's nomination for pre tem:
Being a senator is about "looking out for one another as you rep your district, being honest, being a workhorse, keeping your word."

2nd Amendment Rights

Senator Mike Jackson is a strong supporter of Americans’ undeniable right to keep and bear arms. An avid hunter and fisherman, Mike is a member of the Texas State Rifle Association (TSRA) and the National Rifle Association (NRA) and has received a 100 percent TSRA/NRA voting record during his ten years in the Texas Senate. ... A+ endorsement by the TSRA/NRA.

The position of president pro tem of the Texas Senate is based on seniority. They technically have a vote, but as far as I know the position is never contested (at least in recent decades).
