Austin, TX—Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) today announced their complete list of 2012 Republican Primary endorsements.

“In races across Texas, there are strong, principled conservative candidates running to represent us in Congress and the Texas Legislature,” said Tony McDonald, YCT Senior Vice Chairman. “YCT is proud to announce our endorsements for the 2012 Republican primary. Each of these candidates — whether running for reelection or in an open election or to replace a liberal, moderate, or establishment incumbent — can be counted on to represent their constituents’ conservative values.”

YCT’s endorsement process begins with candidate research, including, for incumbents, analysis of voting records, bills filed, and general legislative performance. YCT examines challengers and open-seat candidates by issuing a comprehensive policy questionnaire and following up, in dozens of races across the state, with face-to-face interviews with the candidates.

Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) has been promoting 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 19 legislative sessions.
