Texas Patriots PAC Recommends Brandon Creighton
for Senate District 4
(The Woodlands, Texas) In the Senate District 4 special election runoff, the Texas Patriots PAC recommends Brandon Creighton. In the special election that was held on May 10th, we had recommended Creighton and two other candidates, Steve Toth and Gordy Bunch, given that each candidate had met our two basic requirements for support – clear conservative values and a credible campaign, or what we refer to as a “path to victory.” Only Representatives Toth and Creighton moved on to the runoff. We have now reevaluated each of these two candidates’ paths to victory given the results of the May 10 election, and have found that only one candidate satisfies both of our basic requirements for support. While both Creighton and Toth are outstanding conservative candidates, Creighton, through his efforts, has put himself into the best position to win the runoff. We believe he not only has the best opportunity to return his May 10th voters to the polls, but also has the potential to attract at least half the voters that supported Gordy Bunch. This indicates a clear path to victory which is a requirement for our recommendation. Voters in Senate District 4 had several great candidates from which to choose and we regret that we will lose an exceptional conservative local public servant after this runoff, for however short the time, whatever the result.
The next legislative session presents conservatives with their best chance to advance the conservative agenda.
Using the momentum from his first election, President Obama passed much of his agenda during his first two years in office. He has not been legislatively effective since. If Dan Patrick becomes our next Lt. Governor, he will enter office with significant momentum. His post will be the key position in the Legislature through which Texas conservatives will have the best opportunity to implement much of the conservative agenda that has been blocked in Austin for years. It is critically important that the man we elect to complete the two plus years of this unfinished Senate term be able to both lead and advocate for conservative efforts to capitalize on this unique opportunity.
Brandon Creighton was not only the leader of the Republican Caucus in the Texas House but also is the more experienced legislator with significant legislative skills that he demonstrated time and again in the Texas House....
