  • $31,700 in kind for radio advertising supporting Rep. John Cyrier (R-Lockhart)

The group also contributed $25K to the Texas Bi-Partisan Justice Committee. The PAC has more than $4 million on hand, as of January 16, after which it reported a $300K contribution from Houston homebuilder Richard Weekley. These contributions would have been disclosed at a later date. The special runoff election’s timing provides a peek into the group’s priorities for the primary.
