Former Texas Eagle Forum President Endorses David Dewhurst
July 3, 2012 – 9:46am – Team Dewhurst
Dewhurst for Texas announced today that Pat Carlson, former president of the Texas Eagle Forum, has endorsed David Dewhurst for United States Senate. In her endorsement, Carlson says Dewhurst “put conservative principles into practice and delivered” for Texas, just as he will do in Washington as the next U.S. Senator from the Lone Star State.
“Throughout his life in public service, David Dewhurst has put conservative principles into practice and delivered countless conservative victories for Texans,” said conservative activist Pat Carlson. “That is why I’m proudly and enthusiastically endorsing David Dewhurst for U.S. Senate. David has worn the uniform of his country, built a business and has been the driving force behind the most social and fiscal conservative accomplishments in the nation.”
“David has balanced every budget since taking office without raising taxes, slashed state spending, killed liberal attempts at imposing a state income tax, defunded Planned Parenthood, and passed the Sonogram Bill, Photo Voter ID and the largest tax cut in Texas history. Conservatives in Texas know that David has fought for them in Austin, and he will fight for them in Washington,” Carlson said.
“It is an honor to have the endorsement of such a dedicated Texas conservative activist,” David Dewhurst said. “For more than a decade, Pat has been a loud and prominent voice for conservative values and beliefs in Texas, and she has stood up and volunteered time and again to serve on behalf of Texas. I greatly value and appreciate her support in my bid for U.S. Senate.”
Pat Carlson served as the statewide president of the Texas Eagle Forum from 2009-11. In addition to her role in that capacity, she has also been actively involved in the Republican Party serving as precinct chair, election judge, Senatorial Convention Temporary Chair, Congressional Caucus Chairman at the state Republican convention, a delegate to 10 state Republican Conventions, a delegate or alternate to four national Republican conventions, ultimately serving as Tarrant County Republican Party Chairman from 2000-2005.
