Dwayne Stovall, a Tea Party candidate challenging Senator John Cornyn for his seat in the United States Senate, has brought the controversial aspects of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into the primary race.
Stovall is not alone in challenging Senator Cornyn in the primary; U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman is also in the primary, but his chances have been severely damaged by the candidate's decision to remain quiet in light of numerous ethics and financial questions.
Breitbart News has provided our readers with the first look into the Stovall campaign press release, sent to us on January 25, 2014.
The headline invoked Stovalls shared stance with U.S. Senator Ted Cruz against the fast-tracking of the NDAA vote. It asserted, Dwayne Stovall Opposes John Cornyn and Stands with Ted Cruz Against Fast-Tracked NDAA Vote.
Tea Party-endorsed candidate for U.S. Senate, Dwayne Stovall, vigorously opposes the NDAA legislation recently fast-tracked through the Senate and passed with Sen. John Cornyn's approval. The 493-page legislation embodies much of what is wrong with the federal government and highlights the reason that John Cornyn frequently gets it wrong for Texas.
In a statement, Stovall said:
Why is it in the best interest of Texas to hand more power to an administration already hostile to conservatives? When the IRS is used to target Texas conservatives, as Sen. Cornyn well knows because he sits on the IRS oversight committee, there is no reason to hand this administration more ability to target patriotic, law-abiding Texans. Prior to his vote to pass the NDAA, Sen. Cornyn voted that he didn't want debate to end, but that effort failed. Rather than continue to oppose a bill that he felt needed more debate as Sen. Cruz did, Sen. Cornyn voted for this very bill, which greatly expanded government powers...

If anybody knows Dwayne personally, could you ask him to become a FReeper so we can help, now that we’re all pretty much supporting him?
I was thinking both of y’all know Dwayne?
I don’t know him personally, he lives about 50 miles east of me. I’ve read all his material and will vote for him.
I voted for him yesterday. I think Stockman’s purpose was to draw as many of Cornyn’s and the GOPe’s arrows as possible before they turned on Dwayne.
I watched a long immigration interview with him, almost feel like I know him now. I’ll go get the link for anybody who has a few minutes to spend.
Heres Stovalls engaging commentary on illegal aliens and how hed end the invasion:
Texans should hear Stovall’s opinion of illegal aliens at the link you posted as it makes perfect sense and would work.
STOCKMAN IS THE REAL RIGHT-WINGER IN THE RACE. Stovall gathered steam after Cornyn was exposed and was an immediate outlet for the disaffected TP in TX. Let’s see here....contractor to schoolboard to ummmm...US SENATE. Throw Stockman under the bus...a solid right-wing fighter! NUTZ!
Stockman never even boarded the bus is the problem. He was my first pick as he’s already in the fight.
He just doesn’t seem to want the job, but I appreciate him taking all the flak, giving Stovall relative cover to campaign.
Thanks for the video! I already voted for him, but nice to put a (very handsome) face with the name.
