The Sentinel Action Fund, a partner organization of Heritage Action for America, said in a release obtained first by The Hill that it will back four candidates as part of its first round of endorsements: Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Ohio), Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-N.M.), and candidates Monica De La Cruz and Cassy Garcia, both of whom are running in Texas districts.
The super PAC will spend seven figures in the four races to boost voter outreach and on television ads in the respective districts.
“Americans need real leadership. Leadership that will put American values first and address the many challenges brought on by the Biden Administration and their congressional allies – inflation, violent crime, the border crisis, and the erosion of our American institutions by the Left’s dangerous, socialist agenda,” Jessica Anderson, president of the Sentinel Action Fund, said in a statement.
The Sentinel Action Fund is also backing Cassy Garcia in Texas’s 28th Congressional District, which is represented by Rep. Henry Cuellar (D) and considered a toss-up seat. Cuellar appeared to narrowly survived a primary challenge from Jessica Cisneros last month.
The group is also throwing its endorsement and funding behind De La Cruz in Texas’s 15th Congressional District, which Cook rates as leaning Republican. She is running for an open seat previously held by Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-Texas), who is running in the state’s newly drawn 34th District.
