Tom Leppert announces new website, Pastors for Leppert
It's just what it sounds.
DALLAS It's been fun watching former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert's Senate campaign take the appropriate steps, one at a time. We saw him declare himself conservative -- really conservative, he wants you to know. Then we reported that he raised $2.6 million for his campaign. Now he's opening up to his softer side by showing voters that he's got the buy-in of "Texas faith leaders." He's got the support of David Dykes, pastor at Green Acres Baptist Church of Tyler (and supporter of Pastors for George W. Bush); Robert Jefress, pastor at First Baptist Church of Dallas; James Denison, former pastor of Park Cities Baptist Church of Dallas; and Mike Fechner, president of H.I.S. BridgeBuilders.
Leppert attends First Baptist Church of Dallas. Pastor Jeffress said of Leppert in a statement, "As Tom's pastor, I know of his deep faith. Never has the need been greater for competent and godly leadership in Washington D.C. I encourage you to join me in supporting Tom Leppert for United States Senator from Texas."
