    Imagine a hotel room at the Plaza Hotel, shopping at Bloomingdales and dining at the Rainbow Room in Benghazi. Yes Benghazi, after all the most feared leader, Muammar Gaddafi is dead and all is calm after the attack on American interests in 2012. So, never let a good crisis go to waste. Libya had and has a deadly history where some elites had high aspirations for a new Libya. Trey Gowdy, the Chairman of the Benghazi Commission likely has some documented trails on Hillary’s future dreams for Libya, but you don’t and should know even more of the story. Libya,...

    In one of the most bizzare explanations for losing a campaign ever, a spokesman for pro-abortion Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis blamed the massive loss to pro-life Governor-elect Greg Abbott on ebola. From Breitbart: wendydavis11Texas State Senator Wendy Davis was steamrolled in her bid to become the state’s next governor, and it appears that her staff believes Ebola has something to do with the failure of her campaign. Speaking on behalf of Davis’ campaign, Communications Director Zac Petkanas told the Wall Street Journal, “The losses that you are seeing in very blue states are simply amplified in states like Texas...

    Federal Judge Blocks Red Light Camera Removal in Houston, Texas Houston, Texas city attorneys attempt to preserve red light camera program by throwing lawsuit filed with vendor. A federal judge issued an order last Friday blocking the immediate removal of red light cameras from Houston, Texas intersections. On November 2, voters adopted an amendment to the city charter making photo tickets unenforceable, against the wishes of the Houston city council and the private vendor that operates the cameras, American Traffic Solutions (ATS). Over the Thanksgiving holiday, US District Court for the Southern District of Texas Judge Lynn N. Hughes worked...

    Republican storm created too much headwind for most Dems From the moment the "Bill White for Texas" campaign moved from a U.S. Senate race to a governor's race, the Democratic candidate knew he was facing a long, hard, low-gear climb. Bill White, an inveterate bicyclist, needed every gear to mesh perfectly. He needed a clear path, however challenging. He got neither. A red-state race that all along was going to be daunting proved an impossible slog in a state full of restive Republicans determined to reverse their 2006 and 2008 losses and in an anti-Washington season that grew ever bleaker...

    People talk about wanting to get the money out of politics, but fundraising totals can tell us a lot about who's hitting their stride and who will soon be hitting the bench. We are now within striking distance of November 2, so much so that Muse’s “Uprising” is my ringtone. “Rise up and take the power back/It’s time the fat cats had a heart attack … .”As we get down to the wire, polls matter, block walks matter, enthusiasm matters — and money matters. In fact, money tells us a lot about the health of a candidate and where he...

    AUSTIN – For the first time in more than a decade, trial lawyers – a key source of campaign cash for Democrats – are betting big on the party's candidate for governor. Plaintiffs attorneys gave more than $1.9 million through June, the most recent figures available, to Democrat Bill White's campaign. And a Houston lawyer is bankrolling a political committee with $3 million to help beat incumbent Republican Rick Perry.

    More than 1,000 Houston dropouts woke up Saturday morning to an unexpected knock on their door from some of the city's top dignitaries — including Mayor Annise Parker, Houson ISD Superintendent Terry Grier and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bill White — encouraging them to return to school. Hundreds of volunteers made morning house calls as part of the Houston Independent School District's seventh annual dropout recovery walk, now called Grads Within Reach. The walk, born in Houston in 2004, has expanded to 22 Texas school districts, as well as St. Louis and Des Moines, Iowa. "Our success as a city depends...

    We got a phone call today from Bill White's campaign. They talked to my husband and invited him to a campaign stop in our county specifically because he is on the school board. I thought that was wierd because we don't vote anything but Republican. I guess they are targetting any aspect of education with their propaganda. Probably going to blame Perry for not taking more Obama money for the schools. I know the liberal media here in Texas are trying to whip up the teachers into a fury against Republicans. This is Perry's home county ironically.

    Houston trial lawyer Steve Mostyn will open a new front in his election-year war against Gov. Rick Perry today by launching a television commercial that criticizes Perry's pursuit of the Trans-Texas Corridor. Mostyn is fast becoming the pre-eminent donor in Texas Democratic politics and a key player in the race for governor. He has put more than $2 million into Democratic causes and campaigns in this election cycle and appears poised to spend several million more. Much of that money has gone to the Back to Basics Political Action Committee, which has already aired two statewide television commercials critical of...

    Rick Perry is calling on Bill White to apologize for telling a black audience in Dallas that he wanted to be a “servant” leader, while the incumbent governor wanted to be “treated as master.” Perry campaign aides contend the remarks, made Tuesday and reported by The Dallas Morning News, were racially motivated and designed to fire-up black voters who are sensitive to terms that hark back to slavery. “Today I am calling on Bill White to immediately apologize to the people of Texas for his insensitive remarks that are nothing more than an attempt to divide our state,” said Perry...

    With 75 days to go until early voting, Bill White, the Democratic candidate for governor, started airing his first TV ad in North Texas for the fall campaign. Most of the ad introduces White, the former Houston mayor, to voters in his race against Republican Gov. Rick Perry. But the commercial does make at least one claim that's misleading. White knows he must become better known among North Texas voters, and his ad tries to frame him as a person and public servant with a vision. ”We're a great state, but we need to invest in the future,” White says...

Obama is scheduled to come to Texas for fundraisers on Aug. 9, but White has said he's too busy to meet with him. But the Democrat said he'd happily take a call from the president. "I'd be available to talk to the president, whoever the president of the United States is, at any time," White said on Friday. "I'm available to talk to anybody by telephone."

    Democrat Bill White's campaign is encouraging Texas' arts crowd to focus on Republican Gov. Rick Perry. A supporter of the former Houston mayor is organizing independent filmmakers to show the short films they are making on behalf of his campaign, White spokesman Katy Bacon said Thursday. The films will premiere at an as-yet unscheduled White campaign event in Austin. The initiative came into the spotlight after Perry's campaign noted that a filmmaker advertised on an actors' website for a look-alike for Perry, the state's longest-serving governor who is known for his thick mane of hair. The impersonator would be cast...

    Exactly one year after it became an issue in his Senate campaign, Bill White — now the Democratic candidate for governor — is still explaining his past membership in a controversial group called Mayors Against Illegal Guns. The issue was not raised by his Republican opponent, Gov. Rick Perry, but by another Democrat who stands by his statements. White said he has a good record on guns. "I have a 'B-plus' rating from the NRA," he said. The Texas State Rifle Association confirms it gave White a "B" prior to the primary. But opponents claim White doesn't make the grade...

    When President Obama pays a visit to Texas next month, Democratic candidate for governor Bill White will not be there. "I don't appear with a lot of people who come through the State of Texas," White said. "I am running for Texas governor, and I make plans. I don't go where other people go." White said he is not avoiding the president; the candidate said he was already scheduled to appear at the Johnson County Fair on that date, his only stop in that county before Election Day.

    A Houston husband-and-wife lawyer team is planning to donate more than $3 million this year toward knocking Republican Gov. Rick Perry out of office and helping Democrats win control of the Texas House. Attorney Steve Mostyn said Tuesday he and his wife, Amber Anderson, are committed to putting a "substantial" amount of money that likely will exceed $3 million into ending hard-right Republican politics in Texas government. The pair already has put $1.3 million into committees that can help Democrat and former Houston Mayor Bill White win the governor's office, making them far and away his biggest benefactors in this...
