Skip to comments.Primary Colors – Part 1 – “A Vote to Remember” (Dwayne Stovall Endorsement)

The March 4 primary is right around the corner and early voting starts Tuesday. First, understand that due to Gerrymandering, the VAST MAJORITY of elected officials win or lose their races in the primary. The November general election is mostly a rubber stamp of whatever candidate wins the primary for the dominant party in their district. I cannot overstate the importance of your vote and the impact it has in the primary.
-snip- Part 1: The U.S. Senate Race
I originally was simply neutral on the race for U.S. Senate. I could not support the incumbent but did not know the challengers well enough. However, the infamous February 13th cloture vote in the Senate was my back-breaking straw, when Sen. John Cornyn:
1. Knifed Sen.Ted Cruz in the back (the second time) on a cloture vote where the Democrats did NOT have enough votes to pass an unlimited, no-strings-attached "clean" debt ceiling increase.
2. Minutes later he voted no on a pretend "show vote" that only required 50% of the Senate and thus the Democrats and big spenders had their votes, and
3. Before and after the Feb. 13 votes he has been running saturation coverage radio ads ad nauseum proclaiming how he (Cornyn) fights the president "every day", after siding with the big spending Democrats yet again. His staffers began spinning that he was fighting the debt minutes if not seconds after he had voted with the Dems to increase it without limit vis-à-vis the cloture vote.
Hence in that U.S. Senate race, after considerable research and vetting, I am now endorsing Dwayne Stovall over Stockman, Cody and the others (several of who are excellent, too). Stovall is a no-nonsense "what you see is what you get" cross between Louie Gohmert and Ted Cruz. He understands our Constitution

Stovall yes, Patrick no.
No to Patrick. Got it.
Vote for Stovall! I am afraid Stockman would give us a Todd Aikin moment.
If not Patrick, then who? I’m not for Dewhurst or Patterson (his running paved the opening for George P.), and Staples seems mostly a non-committal person.
I like the cut of Mr. Stovall’s jib.
I am going with Staples at the moment. I don’t like Patrick. I don’t think he is a moral man.
Well, Patterson made the sacrifice to toss an office to George P.
