Where all candidates sent an application.The TXPC Convention Committee tried its best to send our application to all candidates. However, due to a lack of contact info, some candidates may not have received an application in time.
15
Did you try to balance endorsements?Yes, we took a holistic view of each Congressional District and who is all running for every committee. We tried to balance things so that, if someone was running for multiple committees, they may be endorsed for one committee but recommended for a different one and such.
16
What factors were considered in determining endorsement over a recommendation?First and foremost was the score on a person's application. Secondly, additional factors included: how many other positions is a person running for, what is our history with them, what is their background, how well suited are they for the committee(s) they seek, will they also be endorsed for SDEC/DNC, have they ever done anything problematic in recent time, etc.
17
When are SDEC/DNC and other endorsements coming?Starting April 30th and continuing for 2 weeks or so.
