Texas Senate Candidate Konni Burton Embraced by Ted Cruz

FORT WORTH, TEXAS—Last week conservative candidate Konni Burton kicked off her run-off campaign to clinch the Republican nomination for Senate District 10. It was standing-room-only at Stockyard Station's Stampede Room, with friends, family, the grassroots, and Senator Ted Cruz by her side.

Breitbart Texas previously reported that Burton is the favored conservative in the Senate District that includes Fort Worth, Arlington, Mansfield, Colleyville and other areas of south and northeast Tarrant County. Tarrant County is one of the few urban conservative strongholds in the nation and it is the district currently represented by liberal state senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth).

In the five-person Republican primary race earlier this month, Burton took an astounding 43 percent of the vote--forcing a May 27 run-off election.  #TakeBackSD10 was an energizing outpouring of genuine affection for Konni Burton. From her pastor who gave the opening invocation to the grassroots conservative candidates that filled the room, it was clear that Burton is Tarrant County's favorite daughter.

Representative Matt Krause (R- Fort Worth) was the event emcee. He provided keen insight into Burton's character when recalling his 2012 office run. He told the crowd that he asked Burton to endorse him because he knew she was influential and she knew the issues.

"She didn't say yes, she didn't say no, she said, 'we'll see,'" Krause said, recounting what he thought would be a half hour meeting at a Chick-Fil-A turned into an hour and a half. "She went through question after question on every issue, on policy, in depth, asking me where I was on the issues. She did not want to make the mistake of endorsing or supporting somebody who did not line up with her core beliefs."

Come November, when Wendy Davis gets destroyed by Greg Abbott, is the National media going to report that even Wendy Davis’s seat went to a Ted Cruz endorsed Tea Party republican?

For some reason, I have a bad feeling there will be a phony “National Crisis” that takes all attention away from this election.

Thanks for the info,SCP
With the internet, now local and State elections have national interest from conservatives. The Liberals and Unions have had this kind of network since the 1900s. Konnie sounds like a very thoughtful person.
The updates and endorsements for good conservative candidates
are interesting to me.
Keep them coming!
