Texas Primary Today ~ God Bless Texas!

This is a big election year in Texas. Voters will cast ballots for all 32 U.S. representatives, governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, comptroller, land commissioner, agriculture commissioner, railroad commissioner, three members of the Supreme Court, three members of the Court of Criminal Appeals, 16 state senators, all 150 state representatives, eight members of the State Board of Education, some Court of Appeals justices, district judges, family district judges, county judges, statutory county court judges and many county-level races.

Perry also promoted the Texas economy, with its low taxes and relatively low unemployment rate, as a model for other states. His appeal to pride in Texas has resonated with conservative voters, political scientists say.

“We’re adding to the state population by over 1,000 people per day,” the governor said to about 100 people packed into the Harris County Republican Party headquarters in Houston. “People are voting, and they’re voting with their feet and coming to Texas.”

Across town, at a downtown shopping mall, Ms. Hutchison shook hands with shoppers and passed out palm cards. Shifting her emphasis in the last days, she said Mr. Perry had divided the party with his appeals to the far right, losing support for Republicans in urban counties. She also bristled at his portrayal of her as a Washington insider.

Today is also Texas Independence Day. On this day in 1836 Texas declared it's independence from Mexico and became the Republic of Texas. The battle of the Alamo was in full swing. God Bless Texas!

Most of the elected oficials in Texas are conservatives. I am pulling for Rick Perry to defeat Senator Kat Bailey Hutchinson. She is a bit of a RINO and has run a dirty campaign. I also hope she has a good conservative run against her in her next senate primary.
