Voters significantly thin RINO population in elected office in Texas, incl. House speaker | Eastern North Carolina Now

The RINO Speaker of the Texas House, Rep. Dade Phelan,has been forced into a runoff for reelection in his district, as more than a dozen of his allies lost primaries or were also forced into runoffs by conservative challengers.  Phelan has been widely criticized for his deals with Democrats and his failing to advance conservative legislation, particularly on education.  In his own House district, Phelan ran second with 43% of the vote, while conservative challenger and former Orange County GOP chairman David Covey led the field with 46% and an anti-tax crusader took 11% and is expected to endorse Covey.

Also in Texas, liberal Republican Congressman Tony Gonzales, who has upset GOP voters with his increasingly liberal positions on guns and immigration, has also been forced into a runoff.  Gonzales was held to 45% of the vote in a district that runs along the western two thirds of the Rio Grande on the border with Mexico.  He will face Brandon Herrera, a small businessman who manufactures firearms in the runoff.

Also in Texas, three judges of the Court of Criminal Appeals were voted out of office and replaced by conservatives after they ruled that the Texas Attorney General did not have jurisdiction to prosecute criminal viiolations of the election laws.  That would have left enforcement up to local prosecuters, and in some big cities in Texas, those are biased Soros prosecutors.  It is unusual for judges to be voted out in Texas any time, but all three on one court up for election was remarkable, and it was their ruling on the AG's authority on election law violations that led voters to oust them.

North Carolina has had the same problem with sellout liberal "leadership" in the legislature, Timmy Moore in the House and Phil Berger in the Senate, who have pushed through the key items in Roy Cooper's liberal agenda. They are no better than Democrats and indeed probably worse than Phelan in Texas.

Now, Timmy Moore is moving on to become a sellout liberal in Congress. Good riddance in Raleigh, but I cringe at the thought of that sleaze bag in Washington, DC. Unfortunately, the special interest Republicans now have a new sellout liberal to replace Moore doing the same things Moore did. The only game in town to stop him is Keith Kidwell's bid for the Speakership.

There is no hope of getting any decent leadership in the Senate. Correupt casino man Berger will continue with no effective conservative resistance to his sellout liberalism. We had a chance to do something about that in our senate primary but voters elsewhere in the district let us down by not seeing through the huge corrupt expenditure of money.
