ARTICLE OUTS ANTI-MEDICINE POLITICAL ACTIVIST
An interesting article this weekend in the The New York Times and The Texas Tribune exposes some of the hard-nosed political antics of West Texas oilman Tim Dunn. Empower Texas, the political action committee that tried to take out State Reps. J.D. Sheffield, DO (R-Gatesville) and Susan King (R-Abilene) in the March 6 Republican primary and is targeting Sen. Bob Deuell, MD (R-Greenville) in the May 27 runoffs, is financed almost entirely by Dunn’s oilfield millions. “It’s not a movement,” TMA political consultant Bryan Eppstein told the Times and Tribune. “It’s a special interest agenda of one person.” TEXPAC, which is pushing back against Empower Texas in several runoff races, is unveiling a series of newspaper ads supporting Dr. Deuell and House candidates DeWayne Burns of Cleburne, John Wray of Waxahachie, and Rob Henneke of Kerrville.
