AUSTIN – The American Federation for Children, the nation’s voice for educational choice, congratulates its two statewide endorsed candidates, Governor Greg Abbott and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, on their resounding re-election victories. Texas Federation for Children PAC (TFC PAC), AFC’s affiliated political action committee, invested more than $825,000 and supported 20 state legislative candidates during 2022.
Throughout their campaigns, Abbott and Patrick advocated heavily for educational freedom and parental rights, making it a central tenant of their campaigns, while their opponents promoted status quo policies that sought to appeal to teachers’ unions, with one candidate even comparing parents to “vultures.” The parents made their voices heard clearly tonight.
Statement from Tommy Schultz, CEO of the American Federation for Children:
“Tonight, parents across Texas sent a resounding message, demanding school choice and more say in their children’s education. Thanks to the leadership of Greg Abbott and Dan Patrick, educational freedom was on the ballot this election and won handily. We congratulate the Governor and Lt. Governor on their victories and promise to work alongside them to give Texas children the best education possible.”
