Austin, TX — Today, Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) announced its first set of endorsements for the 2016 Republican Primary.

The endorsements announced today were for seven State Representatives in contested primaries and based on their high scores on YCT’s Legislative Ratings and their actions within the Legislature.

Rep. Pat Fallon (HD 106)
Rep. Matt Rinaldi (HD 115)
Rep. Stuart Spitzer (HD 4)
Rep. Jonathan Stickland (HD 92)
Rep. Tony Tinderholt (HD 94)
Rep. Molly White (HD 55)
Rep. Bill Zedler (HD 96)

“Each of these candidates has proven to be the most conservative choice in their respective races,” said Jeff Morris, YCT State Chairman. “On our scorecard, each landed within the top 15%, earning a spot on our honor roll or honorable mentions list.”

Between now and the primary, YCT will be evaluating all filed candidates up and down the ballot and will likely release additional endorsements. YCT recently released its Legislative Ratings of the 84th Legislature, which can be viewed at ratings.yct.org. YCT has the most respected ratings of the state legislature and is the only conservative group to have done so over the past 21 legislative sessions.

Young Conservatives of Texas is a non-partisan organization that has promoted conservatism at universities across the Lone Star State for over three decades. The State’s most active political youth organization, YCT is composed of hundreds of members and alumni who participate in the full spectrum of politics. YCT issues the most respected ratings of the Texas legislature and is the only conservative group to have done so without interruption over the past 21 legislative sessions.
