Dear Fellow Texans,
With just days left before Republicans choose their candidate to represent them in the election to maintain our Party’s hold on the lieutenant governor’s office, the conversation about the candidates is degrading into a chaotic cloud of accusations and rancor.
So we are writing to call for civility as we make our case. We honestly believe that David Dewhurst is the CLEAR conservative choice.
All traits that are needed in the position of Lt. Governor.
Feel free to dismiss our opinion since we’re not a coalition of TEA Party leaders with titles and a seat at the table in Austin, nor are we all often seen walking the halls every day of every legislative session. Elected officials and citizens know who we are, because we work to make a difference in our communities. Our opinion matters, we are the worker bees all over Texas.
We are not attempting to speak for everyone, we simply want voters to know the David Dewhurst we know and the reason we chose him. We know he is the better man.
We represent a broad spectrum of conservative Republican voters including Tea Party and grassroots activists. We are regular people: business owners, moms, retirees and others who care deeply about a variety of issues. Because we’re real people with real jobs and families, we believe our fellow Texans share our concerns about our state’s future. In a word, we’re real Texans.
That is why we feel a special connection with David Dewhurst. In every interaction, he has been authentic, honest and straightforward with us. His words match his actions and his record of leadership on issues that matter to Texans like us. We honestly wonder if Texas would be as strong as it currently is if he hadn’t been presiding over the Senate for the past ten years.
For that reason, we wholeheartedly support his re-election and hope our fellow conservative Republicans will join us in keeping Texas on track with David Dewhurst as Lt. Governor.
