Carona Gets a Nod From the Right
State Sen. John Carona, R-Dallas, up for re-election in 2014, grabbed an endorsement from Carol Everett, founder of The Heidi Group, an anti-abortion organization.
In the political birds-of-a-feather department, state Sen. John Carona, R-Dallas, grabbed an endorsement from Carol Everett, founder of The Heidi Group, an anti-abortion organization.
Carona, a senator since 1990 and a legislator since 1996, is being challenged in next year's primaries by fellow Republican Donald Huffines of Dallas.
Huffines is trying to label the incumbent as insufficiently conservative; Carona is hoping that endorsements from conservatives like Everett blunt those attacks.
