Lobbying for ED Texas?
See post on TheHill Texas lawyers lobby up in patent fight
From a different post (from March 2015 in the Texas Tribune):
WASHINGTON – Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush now has a serious GOP fundraiser in East Texas backing his early presidential efforts.
Oil and gas attorney Gaylord Hughey Jr., the top GOP bundler of East Texas, said in a Thursday interview with The Texas Tribune that he will round up Piney Woods money for Bush.
“I think he’s pragmatic. I think he’s thought a lot about his positions,” Hughey said in a phone interview. “I don’t think he will change his public policy positions to pander to folks, and I think that authenticity will come through in his campaign."
"And I think it will make him successful,” he added.
On Sunday, the Tribune named Hughey as one of the most sought-after Republican bundlers in the Lone Star State.
