The Texas Scorecard is reporting that embattled House Speaker Dade Phelan has suddenly taken an interest in the issue of Chinese land ownership in Texas ahead of his runoff election later this month:

“Despite the Phelan-led House’s inaction on the issue, support for a ban has only grown in recent months. Over 95 percent of Republican voters said they would support a ban on hostile foreign ownership of Texas land during the primary election in March.

Phelan’s sudden interest in the issue comes as he faces a runoff election against former Orange County GOP Chairman David Covey later this month. He’s not the only incumbent who appears to have changed his tune on the issue.”
