Texas Parent PAC backs Democrat:

AUSTIN – Texas Parent PAC, a group that proved influential in this year’s Republican primaries, made its first endorsement for the general election Tuesday, backing Ellen Cohen, the Democratic candidate in Texas House District 134.

This is the group that all those “in the know” in Texas politics said didn’t stand a chance in last year’s elections.

Texas Parent PAC backs Democrat:

Parent PAC won a high-profile GOP primary battle in March when Arlington educator Diane Patrick defeated House Education Chairman Kent Grusendorf.Eight Republicans and one Democrat backed by the political action committee won primary and special elections this year, of a total of 18 candidates endorsed.

It’s nice to know that the little guy can still make a difference without a personal fortune, even in Texas.
