Texas Majority PAC (TMP)

Texas Majority PAC (TMP)


* Research and development institution dedicated to transforming Texas into a majority-Democrat state
* Supported by leftwing multi-billionaire George Soros

Launched in December 2022, Texas Majority PAC (TMP) describes itself as a “project dedicated to electing a Democrat to statewide office in Texas.” According to an August 1, 2023 Fox News report, a TMP job posting on a progressive jobs-listing website stated: “Texas Majority PAC is a research and development institution dedicated to flipping Texas blue by building year-round Democratic infrastructure in the key regions of Texas.” The post further noted that “TMP invests in partners running voter engagement and turnout programs in an effort to bring their work to the scale required to win statewide office in Texas.”

During its first 8 months of activity, TMP received a grand total of $752,040 in donations, of which fully $750,000 (99.7 percent) came from the leftwing multibillionaire George Soros.

As of mid-2023, TMP had spent roughly $600,000 that calendar year, and it still had nearly $250,000 in cash on hand.

In August 2023, Brendan Cavanagh was named as TMP’s program manager in the Austin, Texas area. Prior to that, Cavanagh had served stints as:

  • a field organizing manager for Beto O’Rourke’s aforementioned gubernatorial run in 2022
  • an equal opportunity specialist at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (2021-22)
  • a recruiter for the Peace Corps (2015-20)
  • a senior supply supervisor at the U.S. State Department (2012-14)
  • an International Development Program fellow with Catholic Relief Services (2010-11)
  • a nutrition program coordinator with Mercy Corps (2006-07)
  • an NGO Management Program fellow with CARE (2005)
  • a consultant with Jimmy Carter’s Carter Center (2002-03)

As of September 30, 2023, TMP’s largest expenditure to date had been $95,574 in payments to Lake Research Partners, a Democrat consulting firm whose past clients included Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, among many others. Also in 2023, TMP expensed:

  • $91,000 to Katherine Ann Fischer, a former official with Beto O’Rourke’s 2022 gubernatorial campaign
  • $67,500 to Jason Lee, son of Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee
  • $20,000 to the Texas Democratic Party

In October 2023, The Messenger.com reported on a “rumor” that TMP might soon “be receiving $20 million more from the Soros PAC [Democracy PAC II] that funds it.” “If we can raise tens of millions that would be great,” said TMP co-director Katherine Fischer, noting that such funding would enable her organization to operate at a “higher scale than we normally can in Texas.” Adding that TMP was aiming to tailor a variety of strategies to the “culturally distinct” needs of Texas’ many cities and counties, Fischer explained: “Driving voter turnout comes down to what people in those regions are doing and whether they have resources to do it. The opportunity TMP presents is to create regionally specific programming [that] candidates are unable to do as easily [on their own].”
