TMA’s Candidates

If you don’t vote in Texas, you can skip this one with a clear conscience.

OK, so you’ve been aching to ask: What Texas Candidates are endorsed by the Texas Medical Association? Trick question, None! However, now that they have their own PAC, TEXPAC has some endorsements. (Click the little pic for a much bigger pic; it’s clipped from a PDF file).

So, if you’re like me and have no idea who to vote for for some of these contests, here’s who Texas Medicine thinks would be just swell. I know you do care, because Texas voters beat all expectations and passed Prop 12, which puts statutory limits on noneconomic damages. (This has not resulted in the wholesale demise of patients at the hands of uncaring physicians, as was predicted by its detractors).

Anyway, I have no personal knowledge of any of these people running for office. Just thought you should know.
