the past several weeks, we have urged you to vote in the primary runoff
elections. It's that important!
voting is now underway, and runs through this Friday, July 27. Election
day is July 31. To determine your polling place, the Secretary of State's website has an easy tool or
you may access this information on your county's website.
an earlier edition of The
Bottom Line, we discussed the runoff elections as well as specific races in
which the IBAT PACs had made contributions based upon our membership surveys in
the various districts. We also provided information on several
"friendly incumbents" we have supported in the runoffs. We
encourage you to review this information in the link provided.
Even if you will not be
able to vote for a candidate in a local race, your participation is important
as two critical statewide races are in play. The IBAT PAC has supported
Supreme Court Justice David Medina, and the FedPAC has supported, and IBAT has
endorsed, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst in his race for U.S. Senate.
We strongly encourage you to vote in these important elections and encourage
your circle of influence to do the same. Turnout will no doubt be low in
this unique election cycle, which makes your vote even more important.
