34 Days to Election Day: Texas
The most important event in Texas politics in 2012 is the 2010 census which awarded the state an additional four seats in the House. Making this even more important is that this traditionally conservative, Republican state is now rich in electoral votes and should be for the next decade. What California is to the Democratic Party, Texas is to the GOP. Therefore, one can safely | Read More »
Donna Campbell (TX-25) Releases Ad Showing Doggett Fleeing Voters
I have been blogging about this race for the past two months or ever since Lloyd Doggett’s opponent, Dr. Donna Campbell, showed up at the Redstate Event. It has provided some excitement and controversy here in Texas, where almost all the serious races have already been decided. Bill White will be lucky to top 40% against Rick Perry. Chet Edwards looks like he’s finished. That | Read More »
Lloyd Doggett Hides from Constituents, Runs Away from Debate w/ Dr. Campbell
The official word is in. Lloyd Doggett will not debate Dr. Donna Campbell for the congressional seat in District 25-TX. And frankly, no surprises here. Lloyd Doggett HATES being challenged, questioned, and generally unappreciated for his ongoing efforts to propose a Washington solution to every problem under the sun for the unwashed rubes he rules over in Austin. We already saw him flee constituents at | Read More »
Businessman Praising Lloyd Doggett in Ad Received Millions in Porkulus
Rep. Lloyd Doggett, the 16 year incumbent of TX-25 (including a large portion of Austin), has released his first TV ad. I guess this means he’s decided to waste money, because progressive writers keep telling me his opponent, Republican Dr. Donna Campbell, has no chance of winning. So why is the Doggett camp making heavy media buys three weeks out? It just doesn’t add up | Read More »
Inside the Numbers: 10 Reasons Donna Campbell Can Beat Doggett in TX-25
It’s always encouraging when a candidate demonstrates an understanding of grassroots campaigning and calls on the new media to get the word out about her candidacy. It was with just such gusto that Dr. Donna Campbell, Republican for U.S. Congress TX-25, breezed through the lobby of the Sheraton on Saturday looking for redstate support. This was just minutes after giving a speech at a rally | Read More »
Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Austin) shills for teachers unions against Texas
“Can someone challenge Lloyd Doggett?” asked Joe Pags (a frequent Glenn Beck fill-in) on talkradio WOAI-AM (San Antonio, TX) about an hour ago. Pags was told that Doggett owns an extremely safe seat in ultra-liberal Austin. Listeners called in that Doggett doesn’t represent Austin or Texas–he’s a far-left Obama progressive. Not that it matters to him, but Doggett just betrayed Texas. This diary is an | Read More »
Rep. Doggett: you’re not alone.
From the diaries, by Erick. As noted below, Rep Lloyd Doggett of TX got his head handed to him talking to his constituents back home in the most liberal part of Texas. He’s not alone. Panzeramic has a whole series of videos from an Arlen Specter event with [HHS Secretary] Kathleen Sebelius in Philly. Here’s my favorite… Check out the site, they’ve got a bunch | Read More »
One of hopefully many scenes from the August Health Care Rationing Grassroots Feedback Seminars.
Not one of my videos, but it should warm your heart. Via Instapundit, I present to you this delightful exercise where Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D, TX) gets some feedback from his constituents on health care rationing. By the way, do you know how Republican TX-25 is? It’s not. D+6. Doggett was apparently not expecting this level of mentoring from his employers. Moe Lane PS: Looks | Read More »
