1. Governor Greg Abbott ($10,091,875) had quite the haul, raking in more than $10 million in campaign contributions in just twelve days, despite the fact that he has no likely Republican primary challenger or significant Democrat opponent in sight.

In the Capitol, Texas Parent PAC advocates for increased funding of public schools, including mandatory funding and expansion of pre-kindergarten, and opposes any form of school voucher program. The group’s website boasts of their endorsements for pro-public school candidates who “reflect traditional mainstream American values.” In the last election cycle, the group raised roughly $147,000, and spent just over $101,500 on political advocacy.
