TCR Looks Around The State:
Other Key Primary Endorsements

CD 23: Once our seat, let's get it back with Francisco Canseco, an exciting young conservative who can help make a difference in D.C.

SD 5: Steve Odgen, Senate budget expert, reliable, experienced, and ready to serve again, to our benefit.

SD 22: Darren Yancy, small businessman who supports ending the gross receipts tax and signed up to support the 10th Amendment to the Constitution and all that it means. He would be a needed conservative addition to the State Senate.

Edd K. Hendee RIP

A wonderful light was unexpectedly snuffed out. Edd K. Hendee, investment executive, veteran, and son of conservative Houston radio talk show host and Taste of Texas restaurant owner Edd Hendee, died recently in a skiing accident at southern Vermont's Stratton Mountain Resort. He was a shining light and loss for all of us. Our thoughts are with the Hendee family and all who knew and loved him.
