As TPM noted earlier on Thursday, the consultants behind the Boats 'N Hoes dissolved the PAC after Texas politicians said its name was "offensive." The PAC was created Shaun Nowacki, the bookkeeper for Blackmore and Associates, a Republican consulting firm that lists Attorney General Greg Abbott, Davis' GOP opponent, as a client from 1991 to 2004.

The attack seems to have slightly put the Abbott campaign on the defensive. Abbott's campaign tried to create some space from the PAC.

"The terminology used in the name of this PAC is reprehensible and Greg Abbott denounces any person or entity that uses such offensive language," Abbott spokesman Matt Hirsch told the Express-News.
