Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas – As the first week of early voting comes to a close, a new set of attack ads has been launched against me by my opponent’s special interest friends down in Austin. I have called on him to end the attacks, and so has the editor of his hometown newspaper,. But again, his silence tells voters everything they need to know.
The attacks are even more out of line than the first set, but this is how the game is played folks.
My opponent is using big city, dirty politics to amp up the attacks through the election. They’ve even come after me for the car that I drive. My car is over ten years old, I purchased it secondhand, and it has nearly 200,000 miles on it–miles I personally drove all over Texas to spread the message about small government, pro-family conservative values.
Last interim alone I drove over 7,000 miles speaking at TEA Parties across the state and helping to build the Texas Conservative Coalition into the second largest caucus in the Texas House.
Strap in and hold on tight, because the big money in Austin is reaching deep to try to steal this election from us in East Texas.
