Smith County Sheriff

As a 43-year veteran in law enforcement, I know the importance of having strong leaders who support law enforcement. Moran is a proven leader who has the courage to make the right decisions even in difficult circumstances.

We can count on Judge Moran to stand up to the Radical Left and those who want to defund the police. As County Judge, he has worked hard to keep East Texas communities safe.

About Nathaniel

Nathaniel Moran was first elected to Congress in November 2022. Prior to his election to Congress, Nathaniel served as Smith County Judge, Tyler Mayor Pro-Tem, and as a member of the Tyler City Council. A native of Whitehouse, Texas, Nathaniel grew up in a single-wide trailer home on a Bible College campus, where he learned from his parents the values of hard work, service to others, and service to God. He knew from an early age that he wanted to commit his life to public service.

Guided by his father, Nathaniel closely followed Ronald Reagan’s 1984 bid for re-election as President. To this day, Nathaniel considers himself to be a Reagan Republican whose conservative values were shaped primarily by his father, President Reagan’s service, and by the strong, steady voice of Rush Limbaugh over the talk radio air waves for more than two decades.

After graduating from Whitehouse High School, Nathaniel attended the United States Military Academy at West Point for two years before transferring to Texas Tech University, where he ultimately earned a B.A. in Russian Language and Area Studies, an MBA, and a law degree. Professionally, he founded the Nathaniel Moran Law Firm, owned a Remedy Staffing franchise, and was a partner at Ramey & Flock Law Firm.

Nathaniel’s education, professional experience, and lessons he learned serving in local government inform his representation in Congress today. He currently sits on the Judiciary, Foreign Affairs, and Education and Workforce committees where he strives every day to represent the East Texas values of faith, family and freedom.

Nathaniel has been married to his wife, Kyna, since 1999. Together, they have four children and reside in Whitehouse.
