Theresa Doggett Taylor is beautiful, black conservative republican. She would do wonders for the party.
To: Ron in Acreage
I have received numerous mailings from McCaul, Streusand, Devine, and Phillips. Some mailings for other races (JP districts, committeeman, etc.). No mailings from Taylor or Elliott.
Overall, I know very little about any of these candidates. Instead of "eine, meine, minee, moe" (that was done in the democrat NH primary) trying to gather good information for the election next month.

One of my problems with Theresa Doggett Taylor is that to me she comes across as very nice, friendly and glib but also lacking in depth. That is, I've never heard her say anything of real substance in her stump speehes. It's all feel-goodism to me. I felt that going back to 1994 when she ran against David Hartman in the primary for comptroller and latest campaign is the same. A case in point is her flyer, which says she stands for " 1. Education accountability. 2. Support the commander-in-chief and the troops. 3. Love and respect for family, community, and our country". Great non-specific stuff. And what does the pro-family stuff mean, when she divorced John Doggett? With her personality and resume, she's been good to run against "the other Doggett" but I wouldnt want to squander a sure-to-be-GOP district on anyone who wasnt a surefire articulate ADVOCATE FOR CONSERVATISM. And yet her card doesnt mention the word "Conservative".
At first I wasnt too impressed with McCaul either, but he's got a few good endorsements (Joe Pojman of Texas Alliance for Life) and got smart enough to call himself a conservative. Still, the claims of leading the fight against terrorism are a bit of resume-inflation. He was in the DoJ.
John Devine is saying pretty much what I would say if I were running: Lower taxes and less spending, no to illegal immigration and enforce immigration law, education choice, etc. He says he is a "conservative leader". at least he is announcing and articulating that he is a conservative. It seems he won the debate that was in Brenham on Feb 3rd (see his website).

Her name would help with recognition (Doggett). I remember about 30 years ago the wrong Yarborough got elected just on the name.
