Their internal polling must be bad, else Mark Henry’s campaign would not stoop to claiming endorsements he’s not received. Maybe you received Judge Henry’s most recent mail piece, claiming an array of endorsements. Apparently, Congressman Ted Poe was not pleased at his name being used in vain.
It’s been said that “for the powerful, crimes are those that others commit”. Apparently, before Galveston County GOP Party Chair Barbara Meeks began denouncing other candidates for accepting support from Tony Buzbee, she was happy to accept a $2,000 check from Tony Buzbee. We were happy to get a copy of the check and post it here.
Galveston County Conservatives are pleased to present our endorsements in the 2014 election season. Because we are active in the Republican party and closely follow local, county and state government issues, we know the candidates in the race, scrutinize their resumes, personal backgrounds and character in an effort to carefully assess those most likely to serve well in elected office.
Be sure to check out our “2014 Endorsements” page and let us know your feedback. Early voting starts next Tuesday, February 18th.
Campaigns are crucibles of intense pressure and thus well suited as a character test for the candidate seeking your support. Blatant hypocrisy can be a useful indicator of how a candidate might perform when the going gets tough in elected office.
Maybe you’ve seen the recent kerfuffle made by the establishmentarians about Tony Buzbee’s involvement in our local 212th District Court race. Apparently, the truth behind all the phony outrage is that candidate Patricia Grady was for the Tony Buzbee endorsement before she was against it. It also appears that Steve Mostyn is a Grady fan.
Straddling the fence on hot issues is stock in trade for politicians, particularly those running for office. Hence, it’s notable when a candidate takes a firm stand on a hot button issue, particularly one in which all other candidates are attempting to be all things to all people.
In case you missed it, Hatmaker has come down on the side of the property owners on the Bolivar Peninsula, specifically the Gilchrist Community Association and the Gulf Coast Rod, Reel, and Gun Club.
