2014 Texas Gubernatorial Election
In a poll released today by the Texas Tribune, Texas State Senator Wendy Davis trails Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott by eleven points. The margin between Abbott and Davis has nearly doubled since the same poll conducted in October, 2013.
The Texas Tribune poll of 1,200 registered voters reveals that if the 2014 General Election were held today, Abbott would defeat Davis by a margin of 47 to 36 percent. Seventeen percent of voters said they
Wendy Davis, the Democratic candidate for Governor of Texas, is a Republican consultant's dream. If the woman isn’t getting her life story wrong, she is telling the world that her paraplegic opponent needs to walk a mile in her shoe.
Wendy Davis is the poster politician for liberalism, and sometimes I wonder if the left truly gets the joke that is Wendy Davis. Consider her lifestyle. We are left with the impression that Ms. Davis rose from living in a trailer park to working her way through Harvard Law School all while raising her daughter. Read more »
Remember the heroine of Planned Parenthood, Wendy Davis? Of the pink tennis-shoed, Texas filibustered, right to kill late-term babies fame?
We now know that wannabe Texas governor Wendy Davis essentially MADE UP her life story about being a single mom and putting herself through Harvard.
Breitbart reported Wendy’s skewed “Facts.”
So let’s take a look-see: Read more »
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott Sets Goal to Make Texas #1 in Education - Exclusive Video Interview
When our leaders set lofty goals it creates a pathway to achievement. Over fifty-two years ago, President Kennedy set a goal for our nation of sending a man to the moon and returning him home safely by the end of that decade. People united behind that goal, including a large community of Texans at the NASA Manned Space Flight Center in Houston. By the goal deadline (the end of that decade) four American men had walked on the moon and returned safely home.
Last week in Houston, Texas Gubernatorial Candidate Greg Abbott set another "audacious" goal for Texans to achieve.
Texas Senator Wendy Davis of filibuster fame announced that she is running for the Texas Governor’s seat that is presently held by our very pro-life Governor Rick Perry. Imagine that, an abortionist in pro-life Texas wants to be our next governor. Like all the pro abortionists, she never even referred to those eleven hours of standing on the Senate floor to defeat a pro-life bill.
Texas 2014 Primary - Gubernatorial Candidate Tom Pauken Talks Education, Workforce Sustainability and Payroll Fraud
As former chairman of the Texas Workforce Commissioner, Tom Pauken is no stranger to the pages of TexasGOPVote. Pauken has been a news contributor for this website nearly from its inception in 2009. Now Pauken has taken on a new role, that of candidate for the office of Governor of the great state of Texas!
I caught up with Commissioner Pauken during one of his many stops at grassroots organizations across Texas. This occasion was the monthly meeting of the Katy Tea Party.
The United States has a proud history of taking outstanding generals on the battlefield and promoting them to executive office. From our very beginning, General George Washington became President Washington. General Sam Houston became the first President of Texas. Now Texas is presented with the opportunity to promote a different kind of battlefield commander as Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott announced his candidacy to become the next Governor of Texas.
Making San Antonio his first stop of a ten-city tour, Abbott made his 2014 campaign bid to be the next governor of Texas. There is no doubt that family is of upmost importance to Greg Abbott. His teenage daughter, Audrey, introduced her proud father to the audience. Abbott took the stage with his wife Cecilia of 31 years. It was not necessary that he stress ‘family’ as it was transparently visible to his hundreds of supporters who waited more than an hour in the sweltering inferno of the San Antonio sun. Read more »
This is Part II of my personal interview with Tom Pauken who is seeking the position for Governor of Texas. We must not be blind to the achievements and failures of our Texas leadership at such a critical time as now. With Battleground Texas on our heels, we must elect a governor who will Keep Texas Red.

Rick Santorum and Tom Pauken
The last time I visited with former Texas Workforce Commissioner, Tom Pauken, was on January 8, 2013. He quietly informed me that he might run for the governor of Texas. I didn’t waste any time asking for an interview.
