Empower Texans PAC 2010 Primary Endorsements

Michael Quinn Sullivan’s Empower Texans PAC has released its endorsements for the  upcoming March 2nd primaries.

Sullivan and his organization prides themselves on being fiscal conservatives and they are not afraid to call out members of the Republican Party for perceived weakness on fiscal issues.

Notice that he did not endorse the following Republicans, including the Speak of the House Joe Straus.  Hat tip to Paul Burka;  MERRITT, COOK, PITTS, EISSLER, OTTO, BONNEN, KUEMPEL, HILDEBRAN, ORR, KEFFER, SOLOMONS, SUSAN, KING, DARBY, LEWIS, JONES, T. SMITH, PATRICK, TRUITT, GEREN, HARTNETT, JACKSON, STRAUS and BOHAC.

The Empower Texans PAC is a state General-Purpose Political Action Committee designed to give Texas’ fiscal conservatives a voice in the electoral process.

The Empower Texans PAC is pleased to announce our endorsements for primary elections. The PAC does not necessarily endorse in every race. This is not a final list of endorsements; other races are still being considered.

  1. Kudos to MQS and co. for all the work they put into this. Their efforts for good government continue to go severely underappreciated!
