Austin, TX -- Earlier this month, a key GOP advisor to Dan Patrick and Greg Abbott registered a political action committee named “Boats 'N Hoes PAC.” [San Antonio Express-News, 4/16/14]
Texas Democratic Party Deputy Communications Director Lisa Paul released the following statement:
“Texas Republicans say they want to reach out to women, to be more inclusive, but actions like this reinforce a pattern of disrespect.

Their consistent contempt towards women is simply unforgivable.”
