Beware of Stan Gerdes and his shameful, last-minute, attacks on Judge Paul Pape.

In the final days of this runoff campaign for state representative, Stan Gerdes has resorted to downright lies about Judge Paul Pape’s conservative record. Time and again, Stan has failed to answer serious questions about his lobbyist backers and their agendas. So before you vote, be sure you know the facts.

These are the FACTS — sourced and verified. They have not changed or been disputed — even by Stan Gerdes himself.

Stan Gerdes has spent his entire adult life in politics. In fact, he moved here just three years ago from Washington, D.C. and is using all of the political connections he's gained to run for this office.

Stan Gerdes has now raised $425,000.00 in an effort to buy our seat in the Texas House. Over 95% of it is from out-of-district special interests, including 46 registered lobbyists with 449 different lobby clients, including liberal cities like Austin and Houston, and water authorities, some of which actively sought to pump our groundwater to out-of-district big cities.

During this runoff election, only 10 people who live in our district have donated even $1 to Stan Gerdes' campaign. Just 10 people. Worse still, only one community leader has publicly endorsed his campaign. Just 1 person. All of his money is from out-of-district special interests, and all of his endorsements are from out-of-district politicians.

Over $102,000.00 of Stan Gerdes' war chest comes directly from 21 PAC’s, including those who profited the most off of the power grid collapse in February of 2021, labor unions, and the slush fund of the disgraced former speaker of the house who was forced out of office after being caught on tape secretly plotting to defeat several conservative Republicans in the Texas House.

Gerdes has even taken money from a New York PAC that has given over $1.5 million to Democrats around the country since 2000. In Texas, that includes liberal Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, among others.
