People on the Move

Key moves in the lobby and among staffers; a Chamber president takes a gig in Austin

It has sort of shifted toward feeling like an interim. Nice and quiet for a few days. Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick issued interim charges and the speaker…well, stay tuned.

That’s unresolved but we’ll keep an eye on what’s going on with the Texas House. The gathering of GOP contributors and allied organizations yesterday was called a “waste of time” by some in attendance. But Dave Carney’s presentation was said to be “well done and interesting” by others.

Carney apparently said that as many as roughly 30 Texas House seats are in play. Those aren’t all Democratic pickup opportunities, mind you. Many of those are seats held by freshman Democrats that Carney thinks the GOP could win back. Seems optimistic, particularly for his business. Another veteran GOP consultant said that when Carney tells donors Gov. Greg Abbott will support field operations for House candidates, what he means is that Abbott block walkers will also drop off literature about those members when they’re knocking doors for the governor.

Efficient.
