Burnt Orange Report Endorses Eddie Bernice Johnson in CD-30

by: Burnt Orange Report

Wed Feb 12, 2014 at 04:00 PM CST

While we are no major fans of Eddie Bernice Johnson, we narrowly endorse her for re-election rather than offer no endorsement.

We do not believe her challenger, former State Rep. Barbara Mallory Caraway offers a compelling alternative. Since voters must make a choice, so shall we.

Johnson has long been at the center of an ethical cloud regarding scholarships she awarded to family members. She earned a Dishonorable Mention on the non-partisan ethics group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington's "Most Corrupt Report."

We hope that Johnson considers retirement such that her constituents may elect a member of Congress that represents all of their needs.  

Early Voting: February 18-February 28, 2014 | Election Day: Tuesday March 4
