Of the $187 million Texas candidates and PACs have taken in so far for the 2020 elections, more than $21 million (11.2 percent) is from outside Texas. The top places pumping money into Texas are DC, California, Illinois, Florida, Oklahoma, and surprisingly, Nebraska.
Texas House Representative Dustin Burrows, who represents District 83 (Lubbock and a swath of West Texas), resigned his post as Chair of the Republican Caucus in the Texas House, apparently as a result of his role in the scandal currently plaguing Texas Republicans.
