Brandon Creighton and Dan Branch: Key Lieutenants for Straus Leadership Team

In an article for the Capitol Inside, Mike Hailey discusses Texas Senate District 4 Special Election candidate Rep. Brandon Creighton's perceived upcoming endorsement of Senator Ken Paxton for Texas Attorney General. Brandon Creighton, as well as Ken Paxton's run-off opponent Rep. Dan Branch, are both represented by seasoned political consultant Ted Delisi, which could turn into quite the predicament for Delisi. However, as an establishment Republican and a key lieutenant on House Speaker Joe Straus' leadership team, there is speculation that Creighton is simply using this endorsement to make inroads with tea party activists.   Read more »

TexasGOPVote Blogger Endorsements: Larry Perrault

I had left a couple of races indeterminate. In the US Senate race, I expressed the priority of unseating John Cornyn; not because I dislike him or doubt his sentiments. But the calculating reticent tactics of traditional Republicans has to go if this country is going to have any shot at rising out f its current hole. If Texas is going to help the effort, Cornyn shows no inclination to be a part of it. I previously said I thought Steve Stockman had the best opportunity to stop him. But let’s consider the situation. Stockman’s lackluster campaign trails Cornyn considerably. But a runoff possibility is not in the total of the runner-up, but in the leader’s failure to garner

The Importance of the Attorney General in Fighting Government Expansion

U.S. vs. Darby Lumber Co. (1941) is one of the most destructive Supreme Court decisions ever handed down by the high court. Through this decision the Court gave near unlimited application of the Commerce Clause—thus being a precursor to the Obamacare decision issued by the Roberts Court—which consequently gutted the 10th Amendment of all the Founders’ intended meaning. Justice Stone, writing for a unanimous Court, wrote

Ken Paxton, A Texas Leader and Champion

http://kenpaxton.com/tv-ad-ken-paxton-will-defend-our-constitution/

We are told that only the strong survive. Ken Paxton is such a man. In the recent TV political ad Senator Ted Cruz explains that Paxton will fight for Texas whether against Obamacare, for Voter ID, or fighting for our Religious Freedom. He will fight to defend our Constitution. Paxton

Primary Colors – Part 2 – Continuing Strong Leadership in the Attorney General’s office to Represent Texas Against Washington, D.C.

The March 4 primary is right around the corner and early voting starts Tuesday. This is the second in a series. (The first is here.) I cannot overstate the importance of your vote and the impact it has in the primary.

Texas Attorney General

This race is perhaps as hotly contested if not more so than others I’ve written about, as there are two genuinely conservative candidates, Railroad Commission Chairman Barry Smitherman and Senator Ken Paxton. Both have committed supporters I know and respect who have been “in the trenches” in the culture wars for years and even decades.

Texas Tribune: Stimulus Fund Allegations Spice Up Texas AG Race

The Texas tribune has reported that one of the businesses that Ken Paxton is an owner of accepted a substantial amount of money from Obama’s stimulus money. The article also explains Dan Branch’s connections to stimulus money. I am not going to comment on the article because it speaks for itself. You can read the entire article here. Below are some of the highlights from the Tribune article:   Read more »

Will Texas Republican Legislators Finally Get Serious About Worker Misclassification?

For the past several years, the Republican-led Texas Legislature has failed to make significant progress in stopping the abuses of workers through unethical employment practices. Many businesses, particularly in the construction industry, carry on a practice of classifying workers as independent contractors when they are truly employees, according to existing law.

Lawmakers have attempted to bring bills to the floor to stop the practice of companies that cheat workers and taxpayers and game the system to obtain an unfair competitive business advantage over companies who follow the law. These bills have repeatedly died in various committees because of pressure from a relatively few, but very powerful, home builders who make millions by cheating.   Read more »
