Skip to comments.Ken Paxton for Texas Attorney General
Posted on 02/18/2014 6:23:54 AM PST by Paine in the Neck
According to Senator Ted Cruz, Ken Paxton is a tireless conservative warrior. Paxton is running for Texas Attorney General. As all of us know, we may not live in Texas, but Texas affects us and we all probably secretly or not so secretly want to live there.
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott frequently describes his workday as, I go into the office, I sue the federal government and I go home. In fact, Abbott had filed 27 cases against President Obamas administration as of the launch of his Gubernatorial bid last year. There can be no doubt as to the significant power that the Texas Attorney General wields against federal intrusion and lawlessness. Moreover, the future leadership of Texas is now being re-shaped as Governor Perry steps down. Its imperative that Texas have strong conservative leadership because as Texas goes, so goes America.
As a result, it is of interest to each of us who next holds that office. Its a race Ken Paxton needs to win.

In describing the race, the Dallas Morning News quoted a political science professor familiar with the race as saying, It offers the best contrast of the two different visions for the future of the Republican Party. One is a more pragmatic, centrist, conservative vision of Dan Branch; and the other is the movement conservative vision of Ken Paxton. Barry Smitherman is an establishment Republican who is trying to wear the clothing of a movement conservative.
Windflier, I apologize if I incorrectly remembered you as having the Texas ping list. Thanks.
Yes for Paxton.
IMHO, the recent following two quotes by Conservative Commentator Eric Erickson highlight why Conservative TEXANS should make their votes count in this Primary Election:
1.) - - - As all of us know, we may not live in Texas, but Texas affects us and we all probably secretly or not so secretly want to live there. - - -
2. ) - - - - Its imperative that Texas have strong conservative leadership because as Texas goes, so goes America. - - -
No, you remembered right. I'll ping the Texas list.
Ted Cruz recommends
Chief Justice Hecht
Place 6 Jeff Brown
Place 7 Jeff Boyd
Place 8 Phil Johnson
Dan Branch is John Tower if Tower were still among us. He once worked for Tower and sits on the Tower board at SMU.
FYI to Freepers in Kaufman County:
Early voting will ONLY use the electronic machines. You will NOT have choice of paper or electronic during early voting.
On Primary Day, March 4th, ONLY PAPER ballots will be used. If you can, please vote on March 4th - paper ballots leave a paper trail!
Say thank you to our GOPe Republicans.
Thanks for the ping!
Woo hoo!! Paxton for TX Attorney General!
Thanks for the ping.
Ken Paxton was a frequent speaker at our Allen, Texas Tea Party meetings years ago. He was one of the few local politicians at the time who were unafraid to align themselves with the movement. He's been a Tea Party favorite ever since, and has given us no reason (that I know of) to think badly of him.
Ken is truly a good man with a wonderful family, and a history of conservative leadership. He will be an excellent AG. We need more people like him and Ted Cruz in office.
Come on now!
Barry is not getting support from Rick?
Good to see Cruz not shutting up like the GOPe would like
There have also been a lot of class action lawsuits and settlements sought by the AG against banks and stuff over the past decade. The banks had it coming too.
He's making them look bad. Very bad. In return, they hate him with a white hot passion for his outspokenness and fearless devotion to conservative principles.
I meant on the Senate race (like Midge and Rand). Sorry for any corn-fusion ;-)
At least, no endorsement in the TX Senate race, that I know of.
Oops...wrong thread. Sorry about that, lonestar ;)
Only endorsement I’ve seen from Cruz has been in Legal races. I imagine he’ll keep it that way.
I cannot agree more with Ken Paxton as AG in this state...His proven conservative and moral positions are what make him a great candidate and will make him an outstanding AG for the state of Texas...
When I heard about him forming up a campaign for this job, I could not crawl over bigger people to get on that endorsement list...
It is the only official endorsement I have given before an actual primary election that I can recall...
That’s how important and confident I am in that decision...
Ken Paxton aligned himself with our Collin County Tea Party groups from the very beginning, and was a frequent speaker at our meetings. This was years ago, and he's been strongly supportive of the Tea Party ever since.
He's one of the few politicians I've rubbed elbows with enough to take the measure of the man. He's the real deal, and he's got my trust.
You sure about that? Got a link? Docs?
Not a challenge. I just need to see some proof that Ken Paxton really did what you say, before I get twisted up about it.
Note that the address is in the middle of a pretty okay middle-class neighborhood. Paxton's support letter, the only one, is on page 151 of the document.
Our neighborhood area was blindsided by it. We just found out about it 2 weeks ag,o even though the state of Texas approved it in July!
I have done tons of research about the group that is suing all the suburban areas around here (which was why Frisco just had to get the same type of housing). According to the group, ICP, McKinney had enough government housing, but it was all concentrated to the east of 75. They decided there should be government housing to the west of the 75. I guess Paxton agreed. According to the consent decree, McKinney will have to have about 2 more of these west of 75. I swear, it's like I'm living in California again.
