NE Tarrant Tea Party is hosting our version of Shark Tank!
There are dozens of conservative candidates hoping to oust some left-leaning incumbents from the TX State House this Primary Election. Should we support them? Do they have what it takes to win? Will they stand strong once elected? This is your chance to interview them and decide for yourself if they are worthy of your hard-earned money!
Our first batch of 12 candidates faces the Shark Tank during an all-day event on Saturday, July 18. You’ll have a chance to hear their stories, learn their positions, dive into their strategy plan, and do YOUR part to support them.
You must apply to attend, as we must be sure only true conservatives are in the audience. Once your application is accepted, we’ll share with you the venue and time.
Bring your checkbook! Only those who are ready to financially donate to campaigns are eligible to participate. It doesn’t matter how much you plan to donate, but you ARE expected to be prepared to donate in any amount to at least a few candidates.
If you do not apply, you will not be allowed in!

When: Friday, June 12th, at 6:30pm
Where: Kincaid’s Hamburgers
Southlake Corners, 100 N Kimball Ave, Southlake, TX 76092
Irving is home to the Islamic tribunal that has been accused of supplanting American laws by following Sharia law. When Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne found out about it, she tried to stop it. Come hear the inside story of the complicity between the media, CAIR and the Democrat Party in protecting this illegal Sharia court. What can we learn from her experience if Muslim activists come to our communities? Mayor Van Duyne will be the featured speaker at our July meeting to talk about her firsthand experiences with the first Sharia court in America. We also have the opportunity to hear from State Representative Jeff Leach, author of the ALAC bill (American Laws for American Courts). That bill failed to pass through the legislature this session, but he can share with us where to go from here.

State Representative Jeff Leach
State Representative Jeff Leach proudly serves the citizens of House District 67, consisting of portions of Plano, Allen, Richardson and Dallas in Collin County. A committed conservative, Representative Leach believes in limiting the size and scope of government, lowering taxes and wisely investing in the critical infrastructure necessary to ensure Texas remains prosperous and strong as our state continues to grow.
Rep. Leach has been recognized by numerous organizations across the state for his work during the 83rd Legislative Session. Specifically, Leach was named a “Taxpayer Champion” by Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, the state’s largest taxpayer watchdog organization, a “Lone Star Conservative Leader,” by the Texas Conservative Roundtable and as “Top Rated Conservative in the Texas House” by Texas Eagle Forum. Leach was also named a “Champion for Free Enterprise” by the Texas Association of Business. In addition, Capitol Inside named Leach as one of the “Best Freshman Legislators” and the Dallas Morning News singled Leach out as one of the “Best of the Dallas Area’s Freshman Class.”
During his first session, Representative Leach successfully authored legislation limiting the reckless expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare, as well as a provision that will spur stable job growth in Texas by providing substantial tax relief for business owners that relocate to Texas. Most recently during the 84th Legislative Session, Leach passed legislation to crack down on sexual offenders and make our neighborhoods safer. Furthermore, Representative Leach successfully authored landmark legislation protecting the private property rights of Texas homeowners.
Representative Leach serves on the House Committee on Government Transparency & Operation and the House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence.
Born and raised in Plano, Representative Leach graduated from Plano Senior High before attending Baylor University, where he served as Student Body President for two consecutive terms. During his time at Baylor he served President Bush in the White House Office of Political Affairs and the Republican National Committee. Leach went on to earn his law degree from Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law and currently practices at the law firm of Gray Reed & McGraw, P.C. in Dallas. Representative Leach is a Member of the Board of Trustees for the Medical Center of Plano and was recently selected to serve as an Ex-Officio Member of the Executive Board for the North Central Texas Council of Governments. Jeff also serves on the advisory board of the Meals on Wheels of Collin County.
Representative Leach and his wife Becky, a small business owner, are the proud parents of Brady (age 7), Charlotte (age 4) and Landry (born October 17, 2014). In addition to service with numerous other community organizations, Jeff and Becky are active members of Prestonwood Baptist Church, where they have served for several years in the Young Families Ministry.
Every election I’m asked by people all over the metroplex who to vote for. I cannot do the research on all these cities myself. Several trusted friends, including in some cases NETTP board members, have indicated who they plan to vote for, and those names are listed in the link below. I have not personally researched or vetted these candidates, and this is in no way an endorsement. This is just a starting point for you to do your own research.
The NE Tarrant Tea Party welcomes all who share our 6 core principles and desire to work with us to promote constitutional governance in every precinct in our districts, one voter at a time. NETTP does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, religion, age, or disability.
