2018 Republican Primary Endorsements and Voter Information

Did you know that Texas has one of the lowest voter turnouts in the nation?  Currently, we are third from the bottom at 51.6% participation, with only Hawaii (43%) and W. Virginia (50.8%) fairing worse.  This is disgraceful. 

It’s a common misconception that Texas is a red state.  It’s actually purple, with millions more dollars pouring into the turn-Texas-blue juggernaut every year.  Democrats want to morph Texas into California, and they may well succeed. 

Election maps show large cities in Texas such as Dallas, San Antonio, and Houston as blue dots in a sea of red.  While there is much more red, the population within the blue areas is extremely dense, and when combined with Democrats in south Texas and Democrat sponsored voter fraud, the possibility of our state eventually turning dark blue is very real.

On top of that, Democrats have devised a racket that has been honed to perfection: Join the Republican Party, run as conservatives, and once elected, go to Austin or Washington and govern like liberals.  We call them “RINOs” – Republican-in-Name-Only and there are a lot of them who need to be shown the door.

In their districts they talk the talk, but in the halls of power their votes are for sale and they side with the Left most of the time.  This has been going on for years and the only thing that will stop it is for many more informed voters to participate in our democracy.  

Not registered to vote?  Not sure? GO HERE.  The deadline to register is Monday, February 5, 2018.  Please encourage everyone you know to get registered if they aren’t already, and VOTE ON MARCH 6TH!!  Early voting dates and locations will be posted on this page when they become available. 

We can settle for smooth talking politicians or we can elect people who are running for the right reasons and will actually make a difference.   All those dollars spent on leftist candidates (in both parties) will go to waste if more Texans will step up to the plate.
