Attendance at Abbott TX-OU fundraiser included 34 Texas House members

Rep. Drew Springer provides the update, notes that Chairman Darby was there

DALLAS – After much speculation in the lobby about how many Texas House members Gov. Greg Abbott could draw to a consolidated fundraiser that he charged them to attend, the final numbers are in.

An original estimate of the crowd last night included about 20 of the RSVP'd House members, but thanks to unofficial head counter Rep. Drew Springer, R-Muenster, we know the final number was a bit bigger.

"31 of 39 (who had RSVP'd) were there. Most of the 8 had work travel & couldn’t make it," Springer tweeted this morning. "3 members including @drewdarby4Tx (Chairman Drew Darby) that weren’t on list attended plus 2 senators," he said. "Counting past 20 requires more than hand & toes,” Rep. Springer said.
