Posted on 02/06/2014 7:36:24 PM PST by JeepersFreepers
WASHINGTON [Texas] Republican Senate candidate Dwayne Stovall has garnered an endorsement from Grassroots America We the People, a statewide tea party group based in Tyler.
The endorsement buttresses Stovalls recent claims that hes the tea party favorite against Sen. John Cornyn.
As far as were concerned, [Stovall's] the only viable candidate in the race, said JoAnn Fleming, executive director of Grassroots America. We didnt even consider Steve Stockman because of his record of being less than honest with the media about his campaign finances. We also dont feel he has the temperament.
The group has expressed a marked lack of enthusiasm for the incumbent, saying Cornyn does not fight for true conservative values

Corn hole is going down . He waited too late to fake “conservative”. He is mister establishment. Real bad news coming for the boy in Texas.
Can anybody tell me how Mr. Stovall replied when “We the People” asked him (ahem) if he would respect Congress’s constitutional Article I, Section 8-limited powers if he gets elected?
Here is an interview with Stovall. I watched this awhile back and I’m pretty sure he addressed limited powers.
Cornyn and the establishment within the GOP need to go for the good of this nation.
Been saying for a long while that Cornyn needs to go.
No one else is getting the air time needed to combat Cornyn’s ad campaign which I guarantee you is working on the low information voters in Texas.
We’ll be stuck with the bastard for another term.
He is a Constitution preacher if that’s what you seek.
I don’t have a favorite. Stovall or Stockman are both acceptable. Stovall is more conventional, Stockman has made some less than stellar business decisions but has addressed some issues nobody else has had the temerity to bring up.
Cornyn I will vote third party over.
The problem we have is that Stovall Vs Stockman increases Cornyn’s chance of re election by diluting the vote.
The number of challengers isn't a problem when winning the primary requires a majority. Recall that Ted Cruz was one of three challengers to Dewhurst (with Don Leppert and Craig James). Fact is, the more challengers, the merrier.
The problem we have is that neither Stockman nor Stovall is going to force Cornyn into a runoff.
Dwayne Stovall is a lot younger and has more fire-in-the-belly than tired old Rep. Stockman.
I suspect that old Rep. Stockman is just running to dilute the Primary vote in order to give Sen. Cornyn the Primary plurality, IMHO.
Montgomery County Recommends:
Texas primaries require a runoff if there is no majority.
Stockman has more name ID than Stovall, who is as unknown as George P. Bush’s primary opponent, David L. Watts. I will switch to Stovall if that is possible (unlikely), but I will vote for Stockman first. No Cornball ever again
It’s a shame we couldn’t have had a powerhouse candidate against Cornball. People in TX only vote for names they have heard.
I meant “Montgomery County TEA PARTY” Recommends:
Stockman is no spring chicken, but he is four years younger than Cornball.
We have one month to coalesce.
Good interview. I’d support Mr. Stovall.
Regardless that Mr. Stovall has read the Constitution and its amendments and basically knows that the corrupt feds have grossly overstepped their constitutionally limited powers, I suspect the following from his interview. I don’t think that he is familiar with the exerpts from Supreme Court case opinions that we see here in FR. These excerpts have helped to expose major corruption in the post-FDR era Supreme Court with respect to the Court’s PC interpretations of the limits of the federal government’s powers.
On the other hand, I think that Mr. Stovall would be very approachable if patriots who are aware of the Supreme Court’s historical clarifications of the fed’s constitutionally limited powers were to get him up to speed on these clarifications.
Yes, it’s really sad how superficially people make their voting decisions. I’ll gladly take Stovall or Stockman over Cornyn.
Whatever you think of his parents’ marital status at the time of his birth, yes Cornyn is going to win this, I suspect without a runoff.
We’ve had worse.
It doesn't work that way- it's a primary- I believe that Cornyn needs to get over 50% to win the primary, (which will preclude a runoff election) and if he gets less than 50%, there is a runoff between him and the next highest candidate ONLY. That is what we're shooting for. There is no dilution, only one Republican will run in the general election. If something I have said here is incorrect, I'm sure that I will be corrected.
And if he gets more than 50%?
There is the rub.
I do understand your point.
Buh bye Cornrow.
If Cornyn receives more than 50% in the primary, he is the Republican nominee and will run in Nov against the democrat, communist, libertarian and all other parties’ candidates.
We still have to decide who we want to back, Stockman or Stovall.
Stockman has some experience and is a teaparty guy.
Cornyn was only polling 50% in December. There hasn’t been another poll since which tells me that those numbers have slipped. He needs to pull 50% to avoid a run-off correct?
Not at all.
As with Lidsay Graham in South Carolina, Cornyn faces a run off election if he cannot garner fifty percent of the Republican ballots.
Any vote in the primaries not for Cornyn weakens him and drags down his momentum.
Heck, Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin and others like Senate Conservatives Fund haven’t weighed in on this as best I know.
All that matters to me is that Stovall, Stockmaen (who I would vote for if I lived in TX) and the others all get over 50 percent leading to Cornyn losing in the second round.
50% + 1. Correct.
Houston radio talk show host Michael Berry, whose wife is the new Texas Secretary of State, is taking calls from Texans asking which candidate they support for Senate.
He can be called from 8-11 a.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at 713-212-5874.
I am not sure about Stockman. I know he is conservative but expect he really thinks he can beat Cornyn. Because Cornyn has acquired the DC disease, too close to the corruption.
The Greeks had it figured out correctly: Every man was obligated to spend 6 years in Public Service, no more, no less.
Both Cornyn and Stockman are career politicians, and thus both should be retired by us tax-paying voters.
We need Congressmen and Senators who are untainted by the DC Disease. (total corruption) So, at this point I plan on voting for Stovall. BUT, the last thing we want to do is allow some ComDem Btard to win the General Election.
I doubt Cornyn will prevail in the primary.
His radio spot lies are as big as Obama’s Big Lies.
As Lincoln said, “You can’t beat somebody with nobody”, and to Republican primary voters Cornball is “somebody”, and Stovall and Stockman are “nobody”.
I understand your logic, but this will not be a normal election. The negative associated with Obozo will haunt every ComDem.
And in my opinion, Cornyn is so bad as to almost be as bad as having a ComDem in the office. Not much difference.
So I look at it this way, vote for the best man anyway. At this point I think it is Stovall.
Best outcome, the best man for the job gets it.
GOPe is using your logic, they don’t want DC to be shrunk. That is exactly what MUST happen.
And read the FACTS:
John Cornyn ranked 2nd most conservative Senator.
Rated A+ by Texas Rights to Life
Rated A+ and endorsed by NRA
I would like to understand why are conservatives making an effort and spending money trying to replace a conservative Senator, John Cornyn, ranked as the 2nd most conservative Senator, instead of focusing on DEFEATING DEMOCRATS?!
Not to mention that if some unknown wins the Republican nomination, he may well be defeated by the Democrat candidate, so conservatives are effectively helping a Dem be elected to the Senate to replace the 2nd most conservative Senator who is already there.
How does this fit with the conservative agenda?
Do you want to start an organization: “Conservatives for Dem control of the government forever”?
“So, at this point I plan on voting for Stovall. BUT, the last thing we want to do is allow some ComDem Btard to win the General Election.”
You can’t have it both ways. If Stovall wins the primary, or if it turns into a Republican runoff, that gives significant advantage to the Dems to defeat the R candidate.
Yes, I know.
But in this case, nothing ventured, more of the same. The same is unacceptable. Even from the Republicans.
“The same is unacceptable.”
OK, so you are saying that you want to get rid of a reliably conservative Republican, to elect a Democrat, to have a “change” — “hope and change” — where have we heard that before?
If Republicans don’t start being pragmatic and realistic we’ll have USSA (United Socialist States of America) shortly. The election of Obama should be a clue...
Republicans stayed home because Romney wasn’t good enough.
I agree and endorse Mr. Stovall as well.
People in TX just don’t recognize any of these names but Cornball, and they know nothing of his record.
I looked at several youtube addresses by Stovall this morning and I am convinced he is THE guy to fight the good fight. Can’t wait for March 4th and my opportunity to cast my first Texas Primary vote since leaving KC for SouthTex and Oso Bay.
There is NO effin way that any Dem will defeat a Republican in Texas in this environment of national despair. Texas voters, especially men, are looking for leaders with brass in their drawers not acorns and Cornyn lacks both. Not to worry.
Cant wait for March 4th
Heck you cast your vote in person beginning next Tuesday, Feb. 18 thru Feb. 28.
You don’t have to wait for primary day. The locations should announced or
call you local Registrar of Voters for info.
