Went to the Tea Party meeting this afternoon and met some folks promoting their candidates. All Texans might want to check out the website of Debra Medina for Texas Governor. She’s a rancher a nurse; chairman of her local Republican Party, and has sued the state Republican Party over the 2000 convention.
She’s got some spunk; that’s for sure.
Plus she’s a homeschooler, pro-life, and her folks there put up a very spirited defense of how Debra understands the Tenth Amendment as a state way to nullify Federal overreaching. One of the ladies there made the point that our current governor Rick Perry only won by 39% last time, and although he’s been talking tough this last year on the 10th amendment, has hd several flawed mis-steps, including the plan to require mandatory vaccinations for all Texas schoolgirls for cervical cancer, as well as the Trans-Texas corridor fiasco.
For all you Libertarians out there, she’s a ery Libertarian sort of lady. I am, of course, sending my 2010 questionnaire to get a better grsp of her positions. I’ll let you know.
For my San Antonio readers, Robert Abaham at Campaign for Texas isworking to get Dr. Lowry elected our next Texas Representative in TX-23 (north and west side of SA.) Ciro Rodriguez stood up against the Stimulus, but has been wishy-washy ever since. Questionaire forthcoming, of course.
Watch this space.
