To the owners of Buc-ee’s, I say it’s “Too late!”

The owners of Buc-ee’s (Aplin and Wasek) lost an opportunity to take a stand against Dan Patrick’s rhetoric. I absolutely support their personal right to support a candidate, but when their name and certainly their business is as popular as it is, they must be dumb or arrogant to believe it wouldn’t be played out as an endorsement. Their contribution could have been done quietly.

My kids and I will find other clean restrooms. Sad b/c I liked Buc-ee’s. Fortunately there are other options to get gas and Icee’s.
