    Looks like they mostly endorsed the guys who have been down there before. Not sure why they didn't endorse Toth he was a real champion.

    Quite a few of the incumbents are good guys, but they also endorsed quite a few Straus supporters with mixed records who have refused to pledge to back a speaker chosen by the Republican caucus instead of teaming up with the Democrats like they did when they elected Straus.

    Brian, for me the TSRA PAC endorsements are just a ‘beginning point’ for my own analysis. Obviously their recommendations are geared toward being “a one issue” voter (i.e. 2A stuff). For me personally, I’m also concerned about the sky rocketing property taxes. So I’m looking seriously at those candidates who have stated a strong position on making taxing authorities “live within their means” (ISDs, Community Colleges, City governments, County governments, etc.).

    So, to truly be informed, everyone should utilize other {additional} sources of information that reflect their own personalized and prioritized concerns. But the TSRA PAC data makes a good beginning point because if they’re anti-2A things, chances are, they are not going to reflect my views on other matters as well.

    One of my favorite additional sources is attending a candidate forum where you get a chance to meet the potential legicritters and ask some questions about issues important to you. Yes, they do take some digging to find and it may mean a few hours out of your evening but they are a big help in putting a face to the name on the ballot. It isn't enough to know who your representatives are, they need to know who you are. These forums can help make that happen.

    I’ve thought about attending a forum or two also. But am worried about left wing types protesting and shouting down the speaker, and thus making the whole thing unproductive.

    I guess that is dependent on what sort of forum and where it is held but most of the forums held during primary season are on a party basis and are less likely to be raucous free-for-alls. I attended a Republican forum last evening and despite several hotly contested races it was a polite and gracious affair.

    They endorsed Charlie Geren who is one is Strouse's enforcers. He is my rep and he is more concerned with sports than state responsibilities.
    Opponent Bo French has a civil case against an ex Geren campaign staffer for false reporting to involve CPS against his family.
