(Bill) White has almost $3 million more than (Rick) Perry - Texas Gov race 2010
Houston Chronicle ^ | July 15, 2010 | R.G. Ratcliffe

Posted on 07/15/2010 1:57:23 PM PDT by a fool in paradise

With the release of the campaign finance material from Gov. Rick Perry, we find that Democratic challenger Bill White is leading in the cash on hand amount by almost $3 million.

Perry will report $5.8 million in cash, according to his campaign. White earlier today said he would report more than $9 million in the bank.

"Texans for Rick Perry Raises Over $20 Million for '09-'10 Election Cycle Doubles Number of Contributors from 2006 Election More than $7 Million raised since Feb. 21; Reports almost $6 Million Cash On Hand" (from Rick Perry campaign press release)

Is the Comical spinning numbers here? Looks like Rick’s spent $14million on his campaign so far. How much has Bill White spent?

White didn’t face any genuine challengers in his primary, Jim Hightower saw to that.

Oh yeah, I’m like all so concerned that Texans are going to elect a Democrat Governor. I’d better quick send some money there that I can’t use to take back the SENATE!

Sanctuary City Mayor

Uh-huh.

I don’t think a democrat has had a chance here in Texas since we rid ourselves of Ann Richards.

I read 50-41. But, hey, I’ll take the lower number for the Sanctuary City Mayor.

That’s because he doesn’t pay 2 million dollar property taxes like his neighbors.

Don’t discount massive vote fraud.

If you can, volunteer to be an Election Judge, Alternate in a dem precinct, or a Poll Watcher.

We can’t cry about fraud AFTER we lose.

Might be true. There is a lot of stimulus money still unspent and white is a loyal party faithful.

Thanks for the reminder to do this. What's the best process to do this?

With Perry’s recent LACK of support for Jan Brewer in the Border Governor’s Conference cancellation, I can’t imagine WHY he’d be having problems raising support! Shacking!

Ha!

Perry needs to REMEMBER WHO GOT HIM THIS FAR. He wants to go back to Texas’ Governor’s Mansion, he needs to ADOPT Arizona’s attitude and adapt their Illegal Alien enforcement laws — NOT go to LaRaza and kiss their backsides!

Call your County Republican Party and volunteer. If you want to be a Poll Watcher, seek out a candidate who can appoint you.

See my short booklet on vote fraud and recent experience as a Judge:

It is best to train as an Election Judge first so that you learn the law, procedures, etc. That way you know how to drop the hammer on dim election officials who break the law.

Between now and November is a good time to search for felons, dead people, 20 voters at one residence, and phantoms.

I have tried many ways to make a difference. Being there when the polls are open is the MOST EFFECTIVE of all. As you read, in Nov. 2000 I prevented over 100 people from voting twice. Knowing what I know now, I could have had a few of them prosecuted for FELONIES. Put a few in jail and the rest will reconsider their fraudulent ways.

White can use that money to fund his retirement because Gov Goodhair won’t lose this one.

"Heard on the radio today that Perry has an eight-point lead in the polls - 50-42%."

You need a Conservative radio station:
Rasmussen has Perry leading 50% - 41%.

Bill White will begin his 2012 Senate campaign with money in the bank.

That’s what all of this campaign is about, getting Bill White statewide recognition. He launched his campaign for US Senate before he announced his run for governor.

She’s said that she’s stepping down but she also said that she would be leaving office this year (she appears to be holding in awhile longer).
