Posted on 02/17/2014 5:53:28 AM PST by cotton1706
(Dr. Jerome R. Corsi) This week, Tea Party Loyalists need to focus attention on assisting Texas Republican Congressman Steve Stockman in the March 4 U.S. Senate Republican Party primary where he is running against Senator John Cornyn who is currently serving as the Republican Whip in the U.S. Senate.
Here is the main point of strategy: Cornyn is facing seven challengers in addition to Stockman and if Cornyn fails to get a majority of 50 percent plus one vote in the primary, then Cornyn must face-off on May 27 against the second runner-up candidate in a runoff election.
In a head-on contest against Cornyn, Stockman will draw the type of funding that will give his campaign a viable chance of knocking John Cornyn out of the U.S. Senate.
FAX BLAST SPECIAL: Congress has forgotten who holds the power. Send a Powerful Message and a Tea Party Flag To Washington! It is now time to tell our elected officials the Tea Party is Coming!
Once Tea Party Loyalists understand Cornyns record in the Senate, replacing him with a Tea Party advocate like Steve Stockman becomes imperative.
Cornyns voting record in recent years qualifies him to be a RINO whose political persuasions are almost impossible to distinguish from the goals of the radical left Democratic Party exemplified by Senate Majority Leaders Harry Reid and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Consider the following:
Cornyns multiple votes to fund Obamacare have helped turn Planned Parenthood into a $2 billion abortion machine. - See more at: http://www.teaparty.org/corsi-time-elect-stockman-u-s-senate-texas-retire-cornyn-34881/#sthash.sZDH1mwu.dpuf

Just don’t let the RINOs do the bidding of the DemRats and promote several different candidates and split the vote so that the Dem’s man wins. They’ve already played us using this tactic in other states.
Obsolete RINO “Johnny Corn” has embarrassed TEXAS for far to long.
He has proven himself to be as useless to America as is RINO Loser Emeritus Senator “Wacko Birds” McCain.
In the Texas primaries, there is a run off if no candidate gets 51 percent.
Any vote for any Republican other than Cornyn helps.
I think the important tactic should include a “winner take all” agreement among the other candidates. Not a very public agreement, but definitely in writing.
The idea is that there are likely several of the seven who are good prospects. By signing on to the idea that the other six will throw their support to the one with the most votes, it will be a lot easier to project that one’s strength in the runoff against Cornyn.
But it also shows off if there are any running who are *not* good faith candidates, in that they would refuse to sign. This likely means they either support Cornyn, or the Democrat the Republican winner will be running against.
This means that the good candidates can let it be known that the stinker is a red herring, so should not be given any more money.
I meant when its time for the general election not the primary but you make a good point.
In the General, removing Cornyn from Republican party leadership and policy shaping will take precedence over merely attempting to achieve a majority for an increasingly left moving Republican party.
Far more conservative bang for the vote.
Nope, I’m goin w Stovall
Not exactly. Correct that our best chance is to get a runoff, but not just any opponent against Cornyn, the correct candidate which is not nutty Stockman.
Looking at the crazy anti-campaigning Stockman is pulling, is Stockman a Strawman for Cornyn, like the Virginia Libertarian was for MacAwful? It sure looks that way from here!
Do we need to get into the runoff only to find out that Stockman really doesn’t try to win? NO!
Stockman does not have Tea Party support as Corsi “slightly infers”, STOVALL has Tea Party support and STOVALL is actually campaigning.
“Nope, Im goin w Stovall”
Anybody but Cornyn! What’s the feel in Texas with the election approaching?
“Nope, Im goin w Stovall”
I am also thinking Stovall.
Stockman is nutty to the sexually liberal faction who would be libertarian if they thought that party could win.
I am a social conservative so I have no problem with Stockman and don’t see his vociferous social conservatism as nutty. Stovall is okay.
I would imnagine that the bottom four Republican candidatees are so weak that their votes would make little difference in a runoff. But the third and fourth placed candidates may have enough to make some difference.
If one thinks Cornball has been liberal thus far, imagine his raging liberalism after his 2014 nomination.
there is already that in place- if cornyn does not get 50% plus 1 vote, he has to have a run-off with the second place guy
Even if it gives Cornyn a better chance to hold his seat?
Keep Cornyn under 50% and sort out the other stuff later.
A vote for anyone other than Cornyn is a vote for a run-off.
And that is a great thing.
Its Stockman’s campaign that is nutty. I wish it were not so and he was trying better. My concern is if and when we get Stockman in a runoff, is he going to campaign like he actually wants to be Senator or just rollover as the sham he now appears to be.
There won’t be 3 in the runoff, our only choice will be Cornyn or the contender. That’ll be a fine time to realize Stockman was really just Strawman and we’ll have Cornyn to hate for another term.
We will not likely have Cornyn to hate in any case.
I believe he has damaged himself to the point that he can not beat the Democrat in the general.
I would rather see him be primaried though.
This is understood. But if the six other primary challengers agree to back the seventh, the winner, and cast their support behind him, it shows he is strong, and that there is great opposition to Cornyn.
ANY non-Cornyn vote in the Primary could end up in a runoff. The #2 in Primary votes will be the only runoff contender.
Started off happy to finally see Stockman throw his hat in the ring only to be shortly saddened to realize he really doesn’t seem to want to be Senator and instead is just lollygagging around in his campaign.
Stovall seems to be the one who is serious about replacing Cornyn. Stovall is backed by the Tea Parties in Texas, NOT Stockman.
Even if it gives Cornyn a better chance to hold his seat?
How does a vote against Cornyn in the primary give him a better chance to hold his seat?
Capt. Clay said: Nope, Im goin w Stovall

Trebb, I do not understand your reasoning. How would not voting for Stockman decrease our chances of defeating Cornhole? I’m sure you mean well, and I respect Dr. Corsi. But, how well do you know Steve Stockman? If he’s in the run-off with Cornhole, I’ll vote for him. But, he’s been my Congressman both times he’s served and I’m telling you, the guy is “baggage-laden”. I’m not sure he could win the run-off election. Trust me: Cornyn and company are keeping their powder dry right now, but, if Stockman is in the run-off, Katie bar the door. A lot of ugly stuff will come out about Stockman. Also, answer this for me please.....
If Stockman will be such a great “draw” for campaign money, as Dr. Corsi says, why is he not doing so now? Where are his radio and TV commercials? All he has is a blog, e-mail addresses and Twitter. I’m wondering if “someone” in his campaign might not be pocketing the money that has come in for his campaign. Now.....
Your turn. Explain to me why you think a vote for anyone besides Stockman will lessen our chances of defeating Cornhole.
If you know anyone who is voting for John Cornyn, in the Texas GOP Primary, please remind them that the Primary Election is March 5th.
(Yes, I know the Primary is actually March 4th, but hopefully the idiot lemmings dont know that.)
Sorry if I caused any consternation. When I saw the original statement, my mind went to other elections where folks opted to back a candidate that "wasn't the one they resented being on the ticket" and the question popped to the fore. I carried the thought outside the actual boundaries and didn't take into account that in this case, it really doesn't matter who one votes for as long as it's not Cornyn as far as the primaries go. I'm unclear of what type runoff will occur if Cornyn doesn't reach the magic 50% - will it be closed to him and his nearest competitor, or is it possible for it to end up with more than 2?
At any rate, apologies to those who took it wrong - just tired of folks voting for a Virgil Goode and insuring that the Left wins again.
Thanks for the clarification. IN TEXAS: If no candidate gets 50% of the vote there will be a run-off between the top 2 vote getters only. It does not matter what their total vote is, just so they are the top 2 in the race. One could get 45% and the candidate with the second most could have 20%. That’s the two in the run-off. In the last Senate Race here in TX between Ted Cruz and Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, the well-entrenched, Establishment candidate, Dewhurst just missed getting 50% of the vote by 70,000 votes. But, in the run-off, Ted Cruz beat him by 8 percentage points.
Thank you for the info - I’m now all for those that wish to add another possibility that may be better than Stockman.
please remind them that the Primary Election is March 5th.
They would probably have to be living in a cave based upon the number of yard signs
that get place about as election day approaches.
You’d be surprised. Most yard signs do not have the date of the Primary on them.
Personally, I’m voting for Linda Vega in the Primary. A Conservative, Hispanic female who is opposed to Amnesty.
Yep, no date so they can be used in primary, runoff and general.
“I believe he has damaged himself to the point that he can not beat the Democrat in the general.”
I believe you are totally unaware of the reality of Texas politics, much less any democrat running against Cornyn. Is there one? The dem must be playing by Stockman’s campaign plan, silent running.
No dem has any chance running for Senate or Governor this year in Texas. Its Cornyn or one of the GOP Primary contenders.
