If that's really important to you (and I'm not being sarcastic when I say I understand why), I have - to quote one of the great lyricisits of our time - "stuff" that'll shock your eyelids. Ten of Rep. Myra Crownover's top 15 donors from 7/1/2011 to 12/31/2011 were PACs outside Denton County, and she has accepted over $80,000 in PAC money from outside Denton County since reelection in 2010. Here's a map to see where it's coming from.
He isn't even in a contested race, but Tan Parker's biggest individual donor during the last reporting period ($5000) was from Irving. His biggest corporate donor (Cardiovascular Specialists PA, also at $5000) is in Lewisville, but it's currently located in District 65.
Heck, even Burt Solomons, who announced his retirement in November, still accepted $4,500 in out of state PAC money that very month.
Of course, the Denton County GOP itself has accepted more than $60,000 in corporate funds since February 2010.
I don't mind a principled stand on this issue, but I hope you apply it to every campaign. If this really bothers you, you shouldn't support any other Denton GOP candidates.
P.S. Fallon's registration date in Denton county was effective as of 10/9/2011.
