EIGHT CHALLENGED JUDICIAL CANDIDATES EARN TEXPAC ENDORSEMENT
Two candidates for the Texas Supreme Court and six appeals court hopefuls – all of whom face opposition in the March 2 Republican primary – won TEXPAC’s endorsement over the weekend. For the Supreme Court, we are backing Rebecca Simmons of San Antonio in Place 3 and incumbent Justice Eva Guzman of Houston in Place 9. In the First Texas Court of Appeals (Houston), TEXPAC voted to support incumbent Justices Evelyn Keyes and Michael Massengale. In the Sixth Court of Appeals (Texarkana), we endorsed incumbent Chief Justice Josh Morriss. Al Scoggins of Waxahachie won TEXPAC’s backing in the Tenth Court of Appeals (Waco). And in the Fourteenth Court of Appeals (Houston), we are supporting incumbent Justices Leslie Yates and Kent Sullivan. Early voting runs from Feb. 16 to Feb. 26.
