This Tuesday, January 28, voters will choose three members of the Texas House of Representatives in the first races of the 2020 season. Ironically, the winners in these races may never cast a vote in the Texas Legislature, as they’ll have to run again in the primary (March) and the general election (November) in order to be seated for the next legislative session in January 2021.
TLR’s primary focus centers on stopping “frivolous lawsuits” and lawsuits involving “outrageous claims of damages.” Over the past two decades, TLR PAC has invested significant resources in helping elect men and women they believe will vote to strengthen protections for businesses and business owners against frivolous lawsuits. In the past TLR often found themselves on the opposite side of political fights from the powerful Texas Trial Lawyers Association, but as the organization has moved towards the center recently, TLR is now often pitted against more conservative organizations like Empower Texans.
