With Straus retiring, anti-Straus PAC takes aim at other Republicans

Instead of their original plan to offer $5,000 to candidates, the New Leadership PAC will make “campaign commitments starting at $100,000 to qualified challengers of Straus’ remaining core acolytes”

Now that Texas House Speaker Joe Straus is stepping aside at the end of this term, the leadership of a PAC launched earlier this year to oppose him and his lieutenants says they’re directing their resources at other Republicans they view as “corrupt.”

“We are intent on removing the old leaders responsible for scuttling half of Governor Greg Abbott’s commonsense agenda for the special session of the 85th Legislature,” the New Leadership PAC said in a press release.
