#NoRePete: Sessions also supporting Jeb


"I have hated the assembly of evildoers,
And will not sit with the wicked."
Psalm 26:5

Similar to Joe Straus, we've previously noted Pete Sessions' Presidential preferences, but this is still worth noting:
WASHINGTON – Jeb Bush will be scooping up campaign cash Thursday in Dallas and Houston – homes to the last two Republican presidents, who happen to be his brother and dad.

It’s unclear if either will make an appearance.

The evening reception in Dallas will be at the home of investor John Tolleson and his wife, Debbie, according to an invitation obtained by The Dallas Morning News. Local GOP sources say they expect Jeb’s wife, Columba Bush, to attend.

A ticket for either event is $2,700, the maximum allowed per individual for a single election.

Bush campaign aides wouldn’t provide details, other than to confirm the two Texas appearances. “As policy, we don’t detail those events. They are closed to the press,” an aide said.

The Houston event is a luncheon at the St. Regis hotel.

An invitation obtained by Bloomberg Politics lists the campaign’s Texas Leadership Committee, a who’s who of Texas Republicans that includes former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, U.S. House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions of Dallas, state House Speaker Joe Straus, oilmen T. Boone Pickens and Ray Hunt, Houston attorney Fred Zeidman, and congressman-turned-lobbyist Tom Loeffler.

Whatever else happens, this Presidential cycle has been invaluable in smoking out the Bush cronies here in Texas....
