State Rep. Jason Villalba (R–Dallas) donated money to his openly pro-abortion colleague Sarah Davis (R–Houston), calling into question his pro-life credentials and further dispelling the myth he is a “Reagan-esque” conservative.
On October 12th, 2015, Texans for Jason Villalba donated $250 to the campaign of Sarah Davis. Davis is well known for being the only openly pro-abortion Republican in the Texas Legislature.
Davis is not only on the wrong side of the pro-life issue, she’s also notoriously left-leaning on fiscal issues as well. She scored an anemic 52 out of 100 on the 2015 Fiscal Responsibility Index, and ranked as the most liberal Republican in the Texas House in a non-partisan Rice University study.
Why would Villalba, who once held up a sonogram of his unborn son on the floor of the House in defense of landmark pro-life legislation in 2013, now suddenly give campaign cash to his fellow colleague who openly works against efforts to protect the unborn?
Voters in HD 114 have become accustomed to such comical inconsistency from their state representative. This past session, Villalba filed a “religious liberty” bill, promoting it in the media before he ultimately caved to LGBT lobby groups and abandoned the bill at the last minute.
Villalba is being challenged by Dallas attorney Dan Morenoff in the Republican primary, a challenge Villalba literally begged his constituents for at the beginning of last session.
