Texas Alliance for Life has its Pro-life Voter Guide up and running. Enter your address program will produce a printable list of State and Federal Candidates that you can print and take with you to the polls or email to your friends. The site doesn't capture your name or other identifying information, so you won't end up on some list, somewhere. No annoying phone calls, etc.
(Yes, I'm a Board member of TAL. And yes, the organization is pro-life and pro-family. But have you noticed that the most fiscally and Constitutional Conservative politicians are also pro-life and pro-family?)
Here's what happens when I put in my address:
The following pro-life candidates will appear on your 2012 Primary Election ballot and are endorsed by Texas Alliance for Life.* (Click on the candidates' names below for more information at their campaign websites.)

I hope this is okay - if not, I’ll welcome a move to “blogger.” (Telling on myself, here.)
Looks good to me, Doc.
WHAT A JOKE!!
Ted Cruz is the man for this one. Dewhurst is basically a dirtbag.
United States Senator — David Dewhurst (R)
I won’t vote for an establishment pick
Cruz is my man for the Senate!
In DFW the Tea Party endorsed candidate is Grant Stinchfield, at least he shows up at their events and get a great reception, to go along with help in the field. The Fort Worth Star Telegram and Roger Staubach also think he will do a good job - replacing a spend and spend grey beard.
I’ll do my own list thank you anyway and it certainly won’t include Dewhurst.
No thanks. You started out with Dewhurst.
Amen. I've early voted already for Cruz.
It was with great pleasure that I voted for Mr. Cruz today.
I wouldn’t have voted for Dewhurst if he were the only person in the race. (Well—I might have, if I’d had no other choice.)
Electing Dewhurst would be like having Kaye Bailey Hutchinson for six more years. Can you say “brain dead”.
Do-Hurst I wonder how many of the others are RINOs. I just got back from the polls and voted Cruz and everyone else I know is voting Cruz.
Sorry, can’t use this list. I am voting for Cruz. I’m sick of Rinos’s trying to “work” with our enemy the liberals.
I am encouraging my fellow Texans to do the same.
Try this instead: http://www.heritagealliance.com/voter-guide.php
I got something similar in the mail. When I saw Dewhurst at the top and an attack on Cruz inside, I assumed that all the listed candidates were safe to vote against under a ‘guilt by association’ theory.
For those interested, the comparison of the Senate candidates. The weight of the grading comes from panelists.
Texas Alliance for Life PAC committee (I’m not on it) interviews and offers candidates the chance to answer the same candidate survey.
Would those of you who disqualify other candidates because TAL endorsed Dewhurst, would you also vote against Dr. Donna Campbell? http://ivoterguide.com/RaceDetails.aspx?927&e=9
Y’all might want to pause a bit and wonder why Texas Alliance for Life http://www.texasallianceforlife.org./VotersHub.aspx, Texas Right to Life http://www.texasrighttolife.com/a/876/Texas-Right-to-Life-2012-Primary-Voter-Guide, Texas for Life Coalition http://texlife.org/ all endorsed Dewhurst. (and at least the first two agree on Donna Campbell.)
I haven’t heard Cruz’ answer to the question, “What do you see happening when Roe v. Wade is overturned in the Supreme Court?” Everyone should try to get him to answer - I don’t think he will - he’s refused before.
Looking for one concrete reason for the pejoratives about Dewhurst. All I see are emotions and opinions.
Continued accumulation of Primary delegates in the remaining State Primaries is the key to improving Pauls chances of forcing the GOP-E to hold an OPEN Convention in Tampa.
Paul will then have completed his main task in this Primary: giving the delegates the freedom to DUMP ROMNEY!
My goal is to defeat the insanity of Keyensian Economics in both of our very sorry political parties THIS YEAR!
This can be accomplished by the Delegates choosing a stellar Dark Horse Nominee, such as R-Rep. West of Florida, to slaughter Obama in a November Landslide.
The key is to FORCE the GOP-E to allow for an OPEN Convention in Tampa. Without an OPEN Convention the SOS of INSANE Federal Spending will keep America on the same crowded track with Greece, and Kalifornia.
There are over 15, 000, 000, 000, 000 reasons why spending more money this year than was taken in during the previous year is an INSANE path to financial destruction.
Neither Obama or Romney have presented a plan to spend our Federal dollars in a non-insane manner.
For example, the GOP Elite have stood in line to endorse Romney, to endorse The Ryan Budget, and to compromise-away every opportunity to reduce Federal Spending.
I included the Ryan Budget, because Rep. Paul Ryan himself says that his Budget will balance in 30 YEARS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BTW, I added those exclamation points, because both you and I know that Ryans budget will NEVER balance, and thus will never be a fact. The exclamation points are just for volume emphasis.
Doo Hurst lies about Cruz in that Chinese tire manufacturing campaign ad.
Truth: This lawsuit has not impacted even a single American manufacturing job. In the 1990s, long before Mr. Fishman filed the lawsuit that David Dewhurst is trying to use to to smear Ted Cruz, Fishman moved his entire mining tire manufacturing to China. Fishman decided two decades ago to use Chinese labor, not American labor, to manufacture tires.
The following have endorsed Ted Cruz in this race.:
Senator Jim DeMint; Dr. James Dobson; Family Research Council Action PAC; Cathie Adams, and Eagle Forum PAC; Kelly Shackelford; Tea Party Express ; Ernie Angelo (Former RNC Committeeman); David Barton (Founder and President of WallBuilders); Tina Benkiser (Former Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas);George P. Bush; Citizens United Political Victory Fund; Club for Growth PAC; Concerned Women PAC; Erick Erickson, RedState.com;;Texas Conservative Digest (2012);Dr. James Dobson; Tim Lambert, former RNC Committeeman; Michael Farris, Chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association; FreedomWorks PAC; Senator Mike Lee, Constitutional Conservatives Fund Chairman; Mark Levin, Nationally Syndicated Radio Host; Madison Project; Former U.S. Attorney General Ed Meese;;Senator Rand Paul; Senator Pat Toomey; Judge Paul Pressler III; Kelly Shackelford, President of Liberty Institute; George Strake, Former Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas; Peggy Venable, Taxpayer Advocate;Senate Conservatives Fund - http://senateconservatives.com/;Family Research Council;Robert P.

Sarah Palin
Cruz is pro-life and gave exactly the same response to the abortion question as did Dewhurst.
Dewhurst has run slimy, false ads against Cruz, placing his desperate desire for office above any sense of personal integrity. Hence, he is basically a dirtbag.
Regardless of questionnaires, Cruz won’t answer my questions when I put them to him in person.
I questioned my friends about their endorsement for Dewhurst last November, when I was still endorsing Cruz.
We were all at the convention of the Texas Federation of Republican Women in Fort Worth. Almost immediately, I ran into Mr. Cruz’ staff. A little later that day, I talked to Cruz himself. All were hostile to my wishes that they would not engage in the negative ad campaign they were already running on the Internet. Dewhurst hadn’t put out any negative ads, yet — but the ones Cruz was using were half truths and innuendos.
In addition, Cruz won’t explain the course he sees for the Nation after Roe is overturned - but I can’t tell whether it’s because he doesn’t believe it will be overturned or because he doesn’t believe I’ll like his plan. He changes the subject.
Nevertheless, in both conversations, Cruz and staff became hostile toward me for asking them not to tear down a good Conservative man.
After this scenario - face to face attempts at conversation and persuasion — was repeated in February at the Comal County Republican Forum, I changed my endorsement and sent a donation to Dewhurst.
Well, I guess we’ll just have to agree that you disagree with me—and DeMint, Palin, Dobson, Levin, Shakleford, Tea Party Express, etc. etc. etc
Jargon, not judgement.
The ad - which only came out last month — tells the story of a company owned by an American, Jordan Fishman. You can hear Mr. Fishman’s story in an interview with Matt Patrick, here, https://www.youtube.com/v/6FMmEdLNDm0?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0
Mr. Fishman manufactures tires in China, but his distribution and sales are/were in the US. The parent company had employees paying taxes in the US. http://wp.me/p1FiCk-CA
The jury found the Dubai and Chinese companies “liable” for theft. Again, the Sarasota newspaper covered the results of the trial, and the judge’s affirmation of the jury’s verdict, in 2010. http://www.heraldtribune.com/article/20100728/ARTICLE/7281018?p=1&tc=pg
Did you read the Doo hurst lies on the link I posted? #7 & 9 are a real problem for doo doo. There is no way he is getting a vote from this household.
More jargon, not judgement.
Jargon: R(afael) Ted Cruz is the “Counsel of Record,” signed papers as such. http://newsandinsight.thomsonreuters.com/uploadedFiles/Reuters_Content/2011/10_-_October/morrison—lanhamact.pdf
Jargon: The jury found the company “liable,” not “guilty.”
The largest 15 counties have had 41,045 in person voters and 31,026 votes by mail thru Tuesday May 15th.
Thanks for the update, deport!
Paid for by the David doo hurst campaign.
It never made it past my recycle bin. Tell a lie often enough and people believe it as truth.
That question is probably worthy of a laugh, given the current court.
