North Richland Hills Christian conservative could challenge Ted Cruz in GOP Senate primary | Texas Politics


Spokeswoman Cristina Baker said the fundraiser is needed to back candidates in the 2018 elections who embody the principles put forth by Reagan.

She said the PAC hasn’t endorsed a candidate in the upcoming Senate race, though she acknowledged that Jacobson was mulling over a challenge to Cruz.

Since PACs can’t coordinate with political campaigns, Baker could not say if or when Jacobson would make a decision. The PAC could also get involved in other Texas races.

Jacobson’s career profile lists a six-year stint as a special assistant to Reagan during his presidency. He has been with Life Today TV for over 22 years.

“Some elected officials seek to divide to win and place advancing their own political ambitions first,” states a portion of the PAC’s mission statement. “We need to elect a new generation of public servants who hold true to Reagan’s principles and reflect his leadership style — bringing people together not dividing them.”

Organizers of the super PAC had not returned telephone calls Monday morning.
