U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) has endorsed the U.S. Senate campaign of State Senator Lee Bright who along with three other challengers is vying to knock off incumbent fiscal liberal Lindsey Graham.
Hes a proven conservative who understands the proper limited role of government, Stockman said of Bright. Whether its the Second Amendment, the right to life or fighting against Obamacare, Lee has built a record that would immediately make him one of the top conservative leaders in the U.S. Senate.
Stockman, a freshman, is running against a fiscally liberal Republican for the U.S. Senate in Texas, challenging establishment Sen. John Cornyn. He achieved national notoriety by walking out of U.S. President Barack Obamas State of the Union address earlier this week.
I left early after hearing how the President is further abusing his Constitutional powers, Stockman said. I could not bear to watch as he continued to cross the clearly-defined boundaries of the Constitutional separation of powers.
Bright who earlier in the day admitted his fundraising was struggling welcomed the good news.
We are thrilled to have Congressman Stockmans endorsement, Bright said. Hes tough, hes principled, and he is in Washington to rein in Washington. Lindsey Graham is in Washington to unleash Washington, and Steve Stockman knows it, and thats why he took the unusual step of endorsing a Republican challenger. He knows Ill join him and Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and others to roll back this cancerous behemoth of a government.
In addition to anemic fundraising, Brights campaign has been rocked by disastrous personal financial revelations - causing many to question whether he can be an effective messenger on bread-and-butter fiscal issues.

Of all the folks running against Graham, I think Lee Bright is the best of them.
I heard he filed for Bankruptcy and that concerns me. The fist Girl who graduated from the Citadel Nancy Mace should get a look at Senate in South Carolina. I live next door in North Carolina and going to help as much as possible to rid us of Graham.
TX and SC united == for Cornaball and Graham; sadly, it’s inevitable, given the kinds of voters we have.
