A new poll commissioned by Defend Texas Liberty PAC shows its endorsed candidates easily winning, or at least leading, their respective runoff opponents, by at least 24 percentage points.

  • Gen. Ken Paxton (R) leads Land Comm. George P. Bush (R), 50%-39%, with undecided respondents generally leaning more toward Paxton than Bush.
  • Dawn Buckingham (R) leads Tim Westley, 42%-18%, with a majority of undecided recipients more favorable to her than him; and
  • Railroad Comm. Wayne Christian (R) leads Sarah Stogner, 50%-24%, with about two thirds of undecided respondents having a more favorable opinion of Christian than Stogner.

The PAC has endorsed Paxton, Buckingham and Christian.

The poll demonstrates “Texas voters are hungry for conservative leadership,” said former Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R-Bedford), who leads the PAC.

Defend Texas Liberty PAC spent more than $5.2M leading up to the primary election, including $3.6M in contributions to former Sen. Don Huffines (R-Dallas), who received 12% of the vote running against Gov. Greg Abbott (R). Aside from a $50K contribution to Paxton, it does not appear that the PAC directly supported the candidates polled.
