State Sen. Brandon Creighton (R-Conroe), the chair of the Texas Republican Victory Fund, sat down for an interview with Texas Scorecard during the Republican Party of Texas Convention in Houston last week.
According to the Texas GOP, “Texas Victory plays a central role in turning out Republican voters in the Lone Star State and remains critical to our success as a party.”
One of the objectives of Texas Victory, Creighton explained, is to aid the top Republican campaigns.
The Texas GOP website explains that Victory has many advantages over regular PACs. For example, Texas Victory has access to a 50 percent discount on postage and can directly provide assistance with door-knocking, phone calls, general field staff, automating text messages, provide training for existing campaign staff, and even voter data. The goal is to ensure that funds and resources go toward maximizing financial efficiency and reducing wasteful operations.
Creighton was optimistic on the topic of voter registration, a battle he believes Republicans have lost in years past. “I think we are winning the battle on registering new voters,” he said.
Regarding the high inflation, increased crime, and food shortages that followed Biden’s election, Creighton explains that “independent voters now feel like—and know—they made a serious mistake.”
When it came to both chambers of the Texas Legislature, Creighton expressed excitement for the Senate to focus on the Republican Party’s legislative priorities, especially regarding election integrity.
Creighton echoed the priorities of Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and even highlighted some of his own, given that he serves as the chairman of the Senate Public Education Committee and the Senate Higher Education Committee. A “parental bill of rights,” school choice, ending child gender mutilation, and addressing the skills gap exposed by COVID-19 are among the top issues Creighton highlighted.
