TEXPAC ENDORSES GOV. RICK PERRY FOR REELECTION
At a joint news conference at the TMA building this morning, TEXPAC announced its endorsement of Gov. Rick Perry for reelection in 2010. “The TEXPAC Board of Directors endorsed Governor Perry because of his unwavering support and defense of Texas’ medical liability reforms and his efforts to protect the sacred patient-physician bond,” TMA President Bill Fleming, MD, said. “We appreciate his guidance to ensure prompt payment by health insurance companies, and his strong support to provide physicians meaningful and real opportunities to serve in rural and underserved areas.” Other legislative, congressional, and judicial endorsements the TEXPAC Board made last month will be announced in coming weeks in conjunction with the candidates’ campaigns.
