2022 General Election Results

Thank you to our donors, supporters, and voters!

 

Congratulations to Texas Parent PAC general election winners!

 

According to the Texas Tribune, 45.7% of the state’s 17.7 million registered voters cast ballots in the 2022 midterm election. In comparison, in the 2018 midterm election, 53% of the state’s 15.7 million registered voters went to the polls to vote. Republicans kept control of statewide offices and the recently redistricted legislative seats made for very few competitive races.

All that being said, it does appear that a big win for public education is occurring in Senate District 27, a seat being vacated by Eddie Lucio, Jr., a Democrat known for supporting Lt. Governor Dan Patrick’s pro-voucher education policies. Texas Parent PAC supported Morgan LaMantia in both the primary election and general election. She is currently leading her Republican opponent by just 569 votes. Truly, every vote does count! Senator-elect LaMantia’s Teach the Vote survey responses may be found at https://teachthevote.atpe.org/Candidates/Morgan-Lamantia.

Heartfelt thanks to the Rev. Ginny Brown Daniel, candidate for HD 150, Mike Collier, candidate for Lt. Governor, Tracy Fisher, candidate for SBOE-14, Jay Kleberg, candidate for Land Commissioner, and Frank Ramirez, candidate for HD 118. All fought the good fight, advocating for public education while running ethical campaigns. Though they did not win, Texas Parent PAC is proud to have endorsed them.

There is no doubt this legislative session will include a battle for Texas public schools and the children they educate. Please be engaged with your local representatives. Make them aware of your desire to see well-funded schools, well-paid teachers, and most importantly, well-educated Texas children. Thank you for your continued support.
