With all of the Senate races in (still working up the House stuff as it's been a busy two weeks), a few observations about the 30 Day Before reports (07/01/18 - 09/27/18)

1. Texans For Lawsuit Reform - $466,719
--Konni Burton (SD10) $332,900

Texans For Lawsuit Reform gave a total of $466,719 to Senate races from 7/1/18-9/27/18. Konni Burton in SD10 got 71% of those dollars, $332,900. That is a very large play into one Senate race.

5. TREPAC (Realtors PAC) gave $165,239 to TX Senate races between 7/1/18-9/27/18 to 5 races. Dollars went out fairly evenly, but there is that same name at the top of the heap, Konni Burton with 24% of the total, $40k.

There is a HUGE drop off in donation amount from the top 5 to the remainder of the top 20 donors to the TX Senate from 7/1/18-9/27/18. There is a $106,406 difference between donor 5 and donor 6. That's a big gap.
#txlege #txed
When you pie chart the top 20 donors to TX Senate races between 7/1/18-9/27/18, you very quickly see that 5 donors gave 77%. And who those 5 donors were giving to didn't vary much. Konni Burton took in $912,900 from just 5 donors.

There is massive money going into TX Senate races. Empower Texans (and TFFR) spent $665k. Dan Patrick, who we know is very much ET related dropped $211k. Texans For Lawsuit Reform and the Realtors backed mostly ET candidates. Who's buying Texas? Who's stopping them?

Let's be clear. @KonniBurton (who has apparently blocked me because she doesn't like people speaking w/ real data) is running ads claiming that @beverlypowelltx is "owned by special interests". On the 30 Day Report, look at Konni's chart compared to Beverly's.
#txlege #txed
When you look at TOTAL $ contributed to TX Senate Races from 07/01/18 - 09/27/18, it totaled $4,981,717.75. @KonniBurton made up 21%, with $1,055,067. Remember that $912,900 (18% of EVERY DOLLAR given to a TX senate campaign) came to Konni from 5 special interests. #txlege #txed
