Poll Shows Ryan Sitton in Strong Position to Win Railroad Commissioner Runoff

Railroad Commissioner candidate Ryan Sitton's campaign recently released poll numbers showing him in a strong position to win the May 27th runoff election. The poll conducted in April 2014 by Baselice & Associates showed that both Sitton and Christian are relatively unknown and most voters are undecided, but when voters hear information about both candidates, Ryan Sitton surges ahead. (Key findings from the survey are listed below.)

What that means in this race is that resources are crucial. Whoever has the ability to raise their name ID and effectively deliver a message should win. The person who has demonstrated that ability in the past is Ryan Sitton.   Read more »

Spotlight on HD 132 Runoff: Interview With Ann Hodge

Last week, I was able to sit down with one of the candidates in the runoff for the House District 132 seat, Ann Hodge.

With the primary over and the runoff in full swing, it's like hitting the reset button on vetting candidates and trying to sway voters to support each respective candidate.

Hypocrisy Rears Its Head in the race for Judge in the 247th District Court

Some of you may know, some of you may not know that I am a proud home school mom. It was a decision my husband and I made and committed to long ago, before we were even married, in fact.

Windy/Wendy Davis gets lesbian Left “support” – as a sex object

Well, flip! Substitute my F-word for their F-word and drop the suggestion that even straight women want to “do ‘very sexy things’ to Windy," and I could have had the vast WingRight Conspiracy laughing at this column. Ironically, the f’ing-bomb-this and f-bomb-that commenters all seem to take Wonkette’s “satirical” take on Windy as a sex object as supportive!

Wonkette is a left-wing blog whose writers spew forth with a foul keyboard, and I think that she and her readers are serious about supporting Windy. It’s just that their support is... shall we say “bent?”   Read more »

Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm.
