Heavyweight Showdown in Texas GOP Primary for Governor
Pajamas Media ^ | Jan 31 | G. M. Roper

Posted on 01/31/2010 1:20:58 PM PST by AJKauf

A popular U.S. senator and an incumbent governor headline a close race, but a feisty conservative activist is gaining ground.


Last but by no means least is the most conservative of the bunch, Debra Medina. A Republican Party activist and the former Wharton County Republican Party chair, as well as the former state coordinator for the Campaign for Liberty, Medina is an admitted long shot, but she has seemingly pushed an awful lot of the right buttons with her share of likely voters:

A new Rasmussen Reports poll revealed a significant shift to Medina among likely Texas primary voters. She now stands at 12%, up considerably from November:

White has a number of challengers but he seems to be staying clear of media (over)exposure while Kay and Rick bloody each other up.

I think that is partially because most of the democrats have little or no statewide recognition and basically won’t be a player in their nomination, imo. Farouk Shami has money and will get some play just because he’s spending a large amount on ads. They do have a debate upcoming Feb. 8 which will exclude the other five and include only White and Shami.

The GOP should still be running ads against White to get the negatives out there before the middle of the year.

Remember the name “ReyTurner” because we will see this “teabagger” again on either Ron Paul or Medina threads not answering any questions especially if they require thought.

What choice do we have?

Medina ad:

“Who is going to think more about Latino families? Rick Perry, Kay Bailey Hutchison or me, who has a Latino family?” (Medina’s cultural heritage is German and Bohemian.)

She told a colleague last month in an e-mail. “Being married, however, to someone with a Mexican American heritage, I certainly embrace the culture.” But before she explained that, she told my colleage, who had asked her whether she considers herself Latina: “I’d not consider myself anything other than a wife and mother, a nurse and a patriot. I believe we too often get into race when it’s immaterial.”

No, Thanks, Mrs Medina.

She is also running Spanish ads. Hello Mrs.Medina! If they cannot speak English then they have no business voting IMO. When they learn English then let them vote. Assimilate. Learn English. Appreciate all America gives you.

So I’m sure she is blowing a lot of hot air just like Obama did just to get elected. Running those ads and saying what she has, tells me the border issue is just a try to get votes for herself.

No, thanks, I’ll stick with ‘ol RINO Perry. Texas has remained in better shape than almost any if not all of the states in the union under Perry's watch. As someone said, 'he's the devil we know'.

The motly crew running for governor is laughable; a MUSLIM, a trecherous RINO woman* (Hutchison) and a woman with questionable loyalties

*Feds Have Built Only 32 Miles of 700 Mile Double-Border Fence Originally Mandated by Congress “One reason DHS has been able to do this is an amendment that Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R.-Texas) slipped into an omnibus appropriations bill that Congress passed on December 18, 2007. Hutchison’s amendment put a loophole in the fence law that allowed the secretary of Homeland Security not to build the fence Congress had mandated the year before.”

What choice????!!!!

Holy crap, so you want to support the TTC? For all you non-Texans praising Perry, I hope he takes over your states, steals your land and puts a big highway on it to allow Mexican drivers to use it at our expense, the proceeds of which are going to SPAIN.

Perry acts like he’s the Putin of Texas.

So Medina has an ad in Spanish. At least she didn’t *sell* the toll roads to freaking Spain. Wake up, man. Perry is selling our infrastructure to foreign companies, and you’re worried about an *ad* in Spanish?

I’ll vote for Mickey Mouse before that Jack Hat. Medina is better than Perry, Hutchison or Mickey. Not perfect, but much better.
