A quick CPAC sitdown with Michael Williams.
He’s running for the Senate seat that Senator Hutchinson is going to vacate (assuming that she ever does), and I was able to touch base with him in between his speaking appearances at CPAC. Michael’s site is here: for those of you unaware of the odd nature of Texan nomenclature, a “Texas Railroad Commissioner” doesn’t actually have oversight over railroads. The position instead involves oversight | Read More »

A Man Crush On Marco Rubio
Yesterday I went to see Marco Rubio at The Villages. Now to set this up, I have more or less been supporting him over Charile Crist because I am mad at how Uncle Crist has been running this state. To support Mr Rubio, I thought I needed to see this guy in action and he didn’t disappoint.

Michael Williams (R Cand, SEN-TX) wants to talk about race.
The problem with this essay on race by Texas Railroad Commissioner and Senatorial candidate Michael Williams is that you really need to read the whole thing: there are too many good bits to cram into just one snippet. But a taste: What grieves me most, however, is not that false cries of racism shortcircuit our debate, but that it makes legitimate concern about pockets of | Read More »
Michael Williams’ (R SEN Candidate, TX) statement on Carter comments.
The Michael Williams campaign has sent around this response to former President Carter’s… interesting… comments about opposition to the President’s policies.

15 Days and We’re Not Meeting the Goal
No sense in being coy about it. We’re not meeting our goal. In fact, the fundraising for these four sucks. I know cash is tight, but unless conservatives are willing to step up to the plate, we’re not going to get these guys elected and, frankly, the establishment of the Republican Party will keep ignoring us. Let’s be honest. One of the reasons the left | Read More »

On the NRSC Memo: What About Florida and Texas. And Fiorina?
I don’t know a single Republican leaning blog that got tipped off about Senator John Cornyn’s memo to the Senate Republican Conference. Brian Walsh from the NRSC just emailed to let me know he had, in fact, emailed me earlier today with a copy of the email. For reasons unbeknownst to either of us, I got one responding to the Devore press release, but no | Read More »
Texas Does Diversity Right
One would think that a “progressive” state like Massachusetts or California would be electing and appointing minorities to statewide office by all of the noise you hear from them about being the “party of diversity.” But actions speak louder than words and Texas, not California or Massachusetts is the only state that currently has three African Americans serving in elected statewide office. The Texas Republican Party is truly the party of diversity in Texas and sets the standard for the rest of the country.
