Although disgraced Speaker of the Texas House Dennis Bonnen announced he would not seek reelection, he has not yet resigned, and he remains in control of more than $3.8 million. According to the most recent campaign finance reports released January 15, Bonnen has $824,334.01 in his campaign account and $2,996,243.90 in Texas Leads, a PAC established by Bonnen.
You might be surprised to find that the Political Action Committee (PAC) with the most small-dollar donors in Republican-controlled Texas — both in the last election cycle and so far for 2020 — is ActBlue Texas, a Democrat PAC. Texas has been long-considered a “given” for Republicans, but Democrats have high hopes that they can finally gain political control and have declared Texas “ground zero” for 2020.
