The campaign of Atty. Gen. Ken Paxton (R) has launched a Facebook ad campaign criticizing U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tyler), one of his three primary rivals, and touting the endorsement of former President Trump.

Gohmert’s relatively late entry into the race has placed him at a significant financial disadvantage to the other candidates. Gohmert raised $1M since launching his campaign and ended 2021 with $882K on hand. Paxton raised $2.8M and has $7.5M on hand. Land Comm. George P. Bush (R) raised $1.9M and has $3.2M on hand. Former Supreme Court Justice Eva Guzman (R) raised $3.7M and has $2M on hand.
