Endorsements & Supporters

San Antonio Express-News

This recommendation for McClendon, who represents utilities and landowners, is as much about her being a quality candidate as it is about policy positions Campbell has taken.  Chief among the suspect positions was Campbell’s support for the so-called bathroom bill last year, a measure that failed.  This alone should cause voters pause. Thoroughly decried by both rights advocates and the business community, the bill would have required transgender Texans to go to the bathrooms according to their genders at births.  This was a carnival show distraction that made Texas a laughingstock and drew attention away from real issues.

Texas Parent PAC

Our pro-public education group endorses Republican Shannon McClendon for Texas Senate in District 25.  She is the real deal:  smart, effective, and a strong advocate for our schools, families, and taxpayers.  Her opponent, Donna Campbell, called public education a "monstrosity." Shannon McClendon believes public education is the key to a better future, and she will stand up for children in 20 school districts.
