As we approach the March 6, 2018 election(Early Voting Starts Tuesday, Feb. 20th), there will be multiple voter guides popping up throughout Mo. County. Whereas the MCTP PAC engages in a full vetting of the contested candidates (that amount to questionnaires and research, as well as many video interviews), most so-called "voter guides" are created to push a slate of special interest candidates in pay-to-play schemes.  According to the Conroe Courier, MCTP PAC vetting has become the county's premier trusted source because of the transparency of our process.


Local MoCo "Tea Party" Comparisons

Comparisons have been made in the past between the 3 most well known groups in MoCo {the constitutional conservative MCTP, the secular moderate Patriots PAC and in the past, the Texas Conservative Tea Party Coalition - Duane Ham's "Fake Tea Party"(per Breitbart), that was started as a group w/the Tea Party name apparently to deceive voters (MoCo Police Reporter)}. This occured back in 2014 elections . Best to know the difference.


MoCo "Circle of Influence" (Iron Triangle) - who's funding who???  Politicians and their donors.....

The concept of the Iron Triangle, oftentimes unholy alliances between "Politicians", the special interest groups of "Mover & Shakers" and the "Wallets" that support/fund and keep them in office, would appear to be alive and well in Mo. County, and at the federal and state levels as well.  It's well known that the "wallets($$$$)", who fund campaigns at the federal and state level, consists primarily of lobbyists(see CD-8 candidate Kevin Brady).  On the other hand, most of the "wallets" at the local level are Developers, Engineers and Contractors, whom feed at the government trough and may benefit from their candidate/s in office.  This appears to be born out in the consolidated campaign finance reports and distribution of contracts over $50,000 of certain politicians and their "support" groups/donors.
