Three Individuals have funded a majority of Texas party operations this year
For both the Democratic and Republican parties some rich friends have provided the financial resources. Retired Dallas trial lawyer Fred Baron indirectly provided $317,000 of the $470,000 taken in by the Texas Democratic Party. Wealthy Christian school voucher proponent James Leininger and Houston homebuilder Bob Perry together gave $680,000 of the GOP's $1.2 million in contributions.
