  • In Texas GOP primary, it's who can love Trump the most

    Yahoo /AP ^ | March 4, 2018
    Texas holds the nation's first 2018 primary elections Tuesday, and the campaign is providing a vivid exhibition of the Trump effect in GOP politics. Some races are playing out in a roadshow of one-upping emulation of the combative president, in which there's no such thing as cozying up too close or too ardently, regardless of his rough edges or low approval ratings nationwide. "I'm Robert Stovall, and like President Trump, I realize the swamp is the problem," begins a campaign ad for Stovall, a San Antonio Republican Party leader now running for Congress. He stands in a literal swamp wearing...

    It is quite clear that the deceptively-named “Affordable Care Act” (aka Obamacare), was NOT supported by “We the People” when it was crammed down our throats three years ago so we could “see what’s in it”. Its popularity has plummeted since then as we’ve found out. Support has dwindled in recent months among the middle and lower classes whose very jobs are threatened by it as employers cut work hours to avoid it, and traditional Democratic “bases” like unions realize they’ve been deceived. Even arch-O’supporter Warren Buffet is now on record against it. One response by the administration—arguably illegal—is to...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is helping the Republican National Committee with a series of Texas fundraisers next week as he seeks a second term in his home state. Christie is headlining three fundraisers in Texas for the RNC on Sept. 9. Organizers say the events include a breakfast in Dallas, a luncheon in San Antonio and a reception in Houston. Christie is a longtime fan of the Dallas Cowboys and plans to attend the Cowboys' home opener on Sept. 8 with Ray Washburne, a Dallas businessman and the RNC's finance chairman. The Cowboys kick off against...

I will post other articles regarding the other things that happened at the meeting. There were five resolutions passed at this meeting. The most pressing and striking resolution that passed was a resolution warning Mitt Romney to go to the Texas Presidential Debate that the Texas GOP is putting together before the Texas...

    Tom DeLay says once his money-laundering trial is over - and he expects to win - he intends to go after the public integrity unit that brought his indictment in the first place. Under state law, the Travis County district attorney is authorized to prosecute corruption cases against Texas politicians. It's been doing it for years - prosecuting Attorney General Jim Mattox and House Speaker Gib Lewis (both Democrats) and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (a Republican). But DeLay said Tuesday that when the unit targeted him, it went too far. The public integrity unit is funded by the state. The...

    Munisteri has been involved in the Republican Party and the conservative movement for 38 years and is a retired attorney and businessman from Houston. In announcing his candidacy, Munisteri stated, “I believe both the Republican Party of Texas as well as our country are at crossroads. Our country, which after the election of Ronald Reagan moved in the direction of free enterprise, entrepreneurship, strong national defense, less government intrusion in our lives, and lower tax rates, has been dramatically moved to the left by President Obama with massive government programs and bailouts. Republicans have a unique window of opportunity to...

    Even with all the pressing issues the Texas Legislature must deal with - in or out of session - the candidates for Senate District 4 believe two issues are most crucial: illegal immigration and state spending. But incumbent Tommy Williams and his opponent, Michael Galloway, differ vastly on just how well the state has addressed those issues so far. Texas has not done nearly enough to prevent illegal immigration, according to Galloway. "We need to change our focus to enforcing the law," Galloway said. "We would see a dramatic decline if we enforced it, but while well over half of...

    U.S. Rep. Leonard Boswell, D-Iowa, has introduced the Toll Road Prohibition Act, the latest bill designed to prevent tolling on federally built highways. HR 3802, introduced Oct. 10, would require states and cities to repay the U.S. government all federal funds used for construction of highways, bridges or tunnels, along with “reasonable interest,” before introducing tolls. “The American people should not be required to pay for the same highway twice, once through their tax dollars and again through new tolls on federal interstate highways,” Boswell said. The legislation would not prohibit the states from entering into public-private toll agreements, but...

    FORT WORTH -- Three leading Republican presidential hopefuls won't attend Texas' first-ever straw poll over Labor Day weekend, and several more are on the fence. But at least four candidates plan to come, and anti-war activists are moving forward with plans to hold retreats, meetings and other gatherings here that weekend and will protest at the event, which organizers expect to draw thousands of Texas Republicans -- and measure their support for GOP presidential candidates. "This event obviously is designed for potential Republican nominees to have a dialogue with grassroots leaders," said Hans Klingler, spokesman for the Texas Republican Party....

    AUSTIN — The Texas Republican Party will sponsor a presidential straw poll of party activists this summer, with an eye toward energizing the GOP faithful and, perhaps, giving Texas more clout in the White House selection process. The poll will be the highlight of a two-day event in Fort Worth that could be the largest gathering ever of Texas GOP activists, state Republican Chairwoman Tina Benkiser said. It is set for Aug. 31 and Sept. 1. "We want the grass-roots leaders to have a chance to kick the tires of these candidates and see what's under the hood," Benkiser said....

    Sugar Land Mayor David Wallace will be a write-in candidate for the seat House Majority Leader Tom DeLay abandoned, according to a member of Wallace's campaign team. Wallace made the decision after DeLay announced Tuesday that he would withdraw his name from the November ballot, leaving the Republican slot blank and opening up the race to a GOP write-in candidate. The state Republican Party lost its legal battle to replace DeLay with another candidate of its choosing earlier this week. Anyone can run as a write-in candidate. But the state Republican Party says it will back a single campaign. "Republicans...

If you would like a copy of a voter guide with more in-depth explanations of the issues, I would be happy to make that available to you. Please don't forget to make your voice heard on these matters, especially on the Proposition 2. Second, I want to take a minute to address a growing negativity I have sensed among Republicans both locally and elsewhere about the current straits of our Party....

    A recent National Review article uncovered that Ronnie Earle, Travis County District Attorney, dismissed charges against four of eight companies being prosecuted for corporate donations in Texas. In exchange for dropping the charges, Earle insisted that the companies make $100,000 contributions to an organization in Stanford that wants to keep corporations from being involved in the political process, despite their First Amendment right to do so. While all the companies in question maintain that their actions were legal and that they would be exonerated in court, Earle convinced them that the contributions would be less costly than a long drawn...

    Four longtime officeholders in Chambers County bolt Democrats, join regional trend ANAHUAC - Chambers County has joined other fast-growing suburban counties where Republicans are no longer swimming against the tide to win a county office. In fact, Republican contenders for Chambers County offices, which officials said started as a small "wave" in the late '90s, turned into a tidal wave within the past month as four more longtime Democratic officeholders defected to the other side. The four are among the county's more powerful elected officials: the county judge, district clerk, county attorney and county treasurer. They are responding to an...

    Since February, three Wise County officials have left the Democratic Party to join the Republicans. County Republican Party Chairman D.A. Sharpe said County Clerk Sherry Parker-Lemon, County Treasurer Katherine Canova and 271st District Judge John Fostel joined the party's membership rolls at a meeting Monday night. "All three of them are not saying they've changed their philosophy," Sharpe said. "They've been conservative Democrats, and the Democratic Party has left them, is how they describe it." Parker-Lemon said she believes that the Republican Party more closely represents her political beliefs. She said she has many good Democratic friends and wanted to...
