Joe Pojman, executive director of Texas Alliance for Life, said the organization endorsed Romney in 2012 and McCain in 2008 but that its 16-member board has not made a 2016 presidential endorsement.

“As of right now, they have not decided to release anything,” Pojman said. “We do have our online voter guide up for all of the other endorsements we’ve made, but we’re not listing anything on that race at this time.”

Abbott is already contacting his staff in the middle of the night with ideas. I know this because they contact me to get our help.”
