The Conservative Coalition of Harris County (CCHC) is a PAC dedicated to promoting conservative candidates within Harris County. Our PAC consists of conservative volunteers who send out questionnaires to the candidates, create panels that interview the candidates, and then vote for the best conservative candidate in each race. Our PAC has 10 core principles that define our beliefs/principles to our volunteers and to the voting public. We believe our core values define us by what we believe in and stand for. Candidates are selected on the basis of these core beliefs. The Conservative Coalition of Harris County (CCHC) is internally funded and does not solicit or accept donations or contributions from candidates. We are a grassroots organization that is based in traditional conservative values. Although small, we are constantly expanding our pool of panel members that are willing to serve in screening candidates and serving on future candidate panels. Please visit our website to see prior guides and to contact us if you are interested in joining our group.
