RPT State Chairman Steve Munisteri announced today that the state party has committed a minimum of $10,000 to the Dan Neil election contest in a show of support for Neil's contest.
"Our office has been in close contact with the Dan Neil legal team led by former Party counsel Donna Davidson. I have reviewed the evidence developed so far and am convinced that there are sufficient irregularities in the vote to warrant an effort by Dan Neil to seek redress with the Texas House of Representatives. The Republican Party of Texas pledges to assist Dan Neil
The 2010 Census report Tuesday will include positive political news for Republicans. According to My Way News:
The population continues to shift from Democratic-leaning Rust Belt states to Republican-leaning Sun Belt states, a trend the Census Bureau will detail in its once-a-decade report to the president. Political clout shifts, too, because the nation must reapportion the 435 House districts to make them roughly equal in population, based on the latest census figures.Read more »

One Texas House Race Still Not Settled - With a 15 vote deficit Dan Neil is still looking at his options
With all the heat going on about the Texas Speaker's race, it is almost easy to miss the election that is still not settled! That being the race for Texas Representative for District 48 in Austin, Texas between Republican challenger Dan Neil and Democrat incumbent Donna Howard.
