Primary Colors – Part 4 – “All Politics Are Local”

The March 4 primary is right around the corner and early voting has started. This is the fourth of four in a series. (This first three are here, here & here). I cannot overstate the importance of your vote and the impact it has in the primary.

Last, for those of you in Harris County, there is a small but vocal group who wants "change" in the county leadership, currently Jared Woodfill, to a recycled challenger Paul Simpson, who has run several prior unsuccessful campaigns against Jared, largely supported by moneyed interests. The challenger’s clarion call is twofold--that the county party books are not open to all and that we lost Harris County

Ryan Sitton Brings Oil and Gas Background to Texas Railroad Commission Race

With today opening the first day of early voting, there is a hotly contested race for Texas Railroad Commissioner with the Republican candidates being Ryan Sitton, an oil and gas engineer and successful business owner; Wayne Christian, former State Representative; Malachi Boyuls, an attorney; and Becky Berger, a geologist. The Railroad Commission of Texas is the state agency that regulates the oil and gas industry, and therefore, has an effect on creating energy jobs. Ryan Sitton is a candidate with a strong foundation of industry background and experience with job creation. Sitton will take his oil and gas experience and knowledge to the Railroad Commission, which along with his

TexasGOPVote Blogger Endorsements: Sonja Harris' March 4th 2014 (Non Judicial) Texas Primary Picks

The time has come for us to make hard decisions. In order for Texas to stay conservative the following candidates are able to handle the task. I did not endorse in every race because there most certainly will be a run off in many of the races. The Run Off Election is scheduled for May 27, 2014.   Read more »

Ken Paxton, A Texas Leader and Champion

http://kenpaxton.com/tv-ad-ken-paxton-will-defend-our-constitution/

We are told that only the strong survive. Ken Paxton is such a man. In the recent TV political ad Senator Ted Cruz explains that Paxton will fight for Texas whether against Obamacare, for Voter ID, or fighting for our Religious Freedom. He will fight to defend our Constitution. Paxton

Primary Colors – Part 3 – Plugging the Senate Leadership Gap

The March 4th primary is right around the corner and early voting starts Tuesday. This is the third in a series. (This first two are here and here). I cannot overstate the importance of your vote and the impact it has in the primary.

Lt. Governor

Conventional wisdom says there will be a runoff between Sen. Dan Patrick and sitting Lt. Governor Dewhurst. I strongly support Sen. Dan Patrick over Lt. Gov. Dewhurst. Frankly, Dan has proven he is a leader and David has proven he is not. Especially at this critical juncture, Texas and the Nation need visionary leaders standing strong for taxpayers

March 2014 Texas Primary: Why Local Elections Matter

What do you think of when you hear the term 'nanny state'? Are you like me and you automatically think of some portly, elderly British woman with knee highs and thick dark glasses looking down her nose while standing over a small child? Does that term conjure up images of a tight, restrictive control over ones subjects, just aching for them to make the tiniest mistake so their privileges, or what's left of them, can be snatched away in one fail swoop? Wikipedia defines Nanny state as a term of British origin (and primary use) that conveys a view that a government or its policies are overprotective or interfering unduly

Primary Colors – Part 2 – Continuing Strong Leadership in the Attorney General’s office to Represent Texas Against Washington, D.C.

The March 4 primary is right around the corner and early voting starts Tuesday. This is the second in a series. (The first is here.) I cannot overstate the importance of your vote and the impact it has in the primary.

Texas Attorney General

This race is perhaps as hotly contested if not more so than others I’ve written about, as there are two genuinely conservative candidates, Railroad Commission Chairman Barry Smitherman and Senator Ken Paxton. Both have committed supporters I know and respect who have been “in the trenches” in the culture wars for years and even decades.

Primary Colors – Part 1 – “A Vote to Remember”

The March 4 primary is right around the corner and early voting starts Tuesday. First, understand that due to Gerrymandering, the VAST MAJORITY of elected officials win or lose their races in the primary. The November general election is mostly a rubber stamp of whatever candidate wins the primary for the dominant party in their district. I cannot overstate the importance of your vote and the impact it has in the primary.

Below are my researched endorsements for the upcoming primary. If a race is not listed, I have not yet made an endorsement in that race and may not. Many of you know that I am an engineer by training and profession, and like most engineers,
