Newt Gingrich endorses Michael Williams for Texas Senate.
Now that I may comment: former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has endorsed Michael Williams for Kay Bailey Hutchison’s soon-vacant Senate seat. It’s a strong endorsement, too (that link also leads to contribution information): Having been a part of the last effort to retake the congressional majority, I am convinced we don’t have to wait 40 years this time to regain power. Democrats in Congress offer | Read More »

Redstate Gathering Video – Michael Williams
Michael Williams is an amazing, dynamic speaker. He is the current Railroad Commissioner for Texas, and the odds on favorite to replace Kay Bailey Hutchinson when she leaves the Senate in the next few months. At times the room felt like an old time revival, with Michael drawing in the crowd with his eloquence combined with a genuinely friendly demeanor. Words really can’t describe it, | Read More »

This is not his speech and question/answer session: that will be a separate video that will appear later. This is just me asking him a few questions. | Read More »
Now that we’ve met in Atlanta, we must mobilize.
This weekend, 200 RedStaters gathered together in Atlanta to hear from real conservative leaders and candidates. We were specific in our invitations — we wanted conservatives, not just Republicans. The message was phenomenal. The time shared was outstanding. But now we have work to do. We cannot return to our former ways. We must commit to continuous activity on behalf of these outstanding men and | Read More »
An Amazing Time
As you can tell, we’ve been away and busy at the RedState Gathering. Liz Cheney spoke. She was amazing. “America needs a commander in chief,” she said, ” not a global community organizer.” Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Nikki Haley, Michael Williams, Ken Cuccinelli, Karen Handel, Tom Price, Pat Toomey, Roy Blunt, Jim DeMint, and Rick Perry all joined us in person or via video.

Kay Bailey Hutchison will resign seat to run for Governor of Texas.
I find some of the rhetoric going on between Senator Hutchison and Governor Perry to be already a bit harsh, so here are the bare bones of the story: Hutchison told WBAP-AM (820) host Mark Davis that she would officially kick-off her campaign in August. “Formal announcement: I am in. Then the actual leaving of the Senate will be sometime — October, November — that, | Read More »
Michael Williams’ Cap-and-Trade series, continued.
Part 4 and Part 5 of his cap-and-trade review are up. Part 4 goes in quickly about the differences between the cap-and-trade restrictions of Waxman-Markey and the Clean Air Act (very quickly: it’s the difference between carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide); Part 5 discusses the problems that W-M is going to give Texas specifically. Still remaining: the Chinese connection and how people can get involved. | Read More »
Michael Williams examines the cap-and-trade bill.
Michael Williams, current Texas Railroad Commissioner* and candidate for Senate, is doing a multi-part survey of the Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade bill currently before Congress. He’s up to Part III (see also Part I & Part II, of course), and here’s what he’s hoping to accomplish with it: Democrats in Congress, joined with the Obama administration, are proceeding along parallel tracks to impose CO2 regulations so sweeping | Read More »
Two days left on Michael Williams’ Online Contribution Drive.
Texas Railroad Commissioner Michael Williams is running to replace Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson in anticipation of her vacating her Senate seat to run for Governor, and he’s currently attempting to raise $10,000 by May 31st. Here’s some footage from him from the April 15th Tea Party: If you like this, or his stance on current issues, feel free to donate. Full disclosure: I am in | Read More »
So we give Michael Williams a few months of incumbency as Senator.
Sen. John Cornyn is worried that Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison is going to retire early this fall to run for Governor, but I’m missing the problem here (via Political Wire): “My guess,” he told Texas reporters at his Senate office today, is that Hutchison will resign “this fall sometime.” That would allow Perry to appoint an interim senator and allow a special election to take | Read More »
Looking at the Michael Williams for Senate Online Presence.
Before we go any further: if you’re not checked out on this guy, check out the two speeches below: and …then read this old diary. And this official website.
Michael Williams (R-TX) Announces Run for Senate!
In my previous blog, I said that I wished Michael Williams, the Texas Railroad Chairman, would run for the Senate seat to be vacated by Kay Bailey Hutchison. He’s been elected statewide in Texas a few times, is popular and most importantly he’s a conservative with no hyphens needed. I am on the WilliamsForTexas.com emailing list, so I was pleasantly surprised today to read the | Read More »
Michael Williams (R-TX) for Senate
Promoted from Diaries. – Moe Lane I’ve been a big fan of Michael Williams’ for the last couple of years. I don’t quite remember how I, living in Oregon, came about knowing who the Chairman of the Texas Railroad Commission was, but I support him to replace Kay Bailey Hutchison as the Senator from the great state of Texas. First, Hutchison is starting to set | Read More »
