Tom Leppert just sent word that a new website launched today: Pastors for Leppert, which includes not only endorsements from religious leaders but also "Tom's Statement of Faith." Writes Not Mayor Tom on his Facebook page:
I am truly humbled by the support I've received from these faith leaders. We can get our country moving again if we are willing to make the hard calls necessary to reform Washington and return to the commonsense, conservative values that made our country great. I'm looking forward to working with these pastors and others across Texas as our campaign continues to gather momentum.
First up on the Tom Train? You guessed it: Robert Jeffress.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
