I like Stockman. A lot of people think he’s a loon. For me, that is actually a selling point. I want someone to fight 100% for what is right, and not be afraid of what others may think. We are well past the time of half measures.
I’m all for this guy-—we need to unseat Cornyn.
Which is why he recently endorsed Lee Bright in SC to unseat Lindsey Graham ..Bright is not a half measures guy either...
The primaries are quickly approaching and folks need to know there's an alternative to Cornpone.
Me too. I sent him some last payday and will this payday.
