Texas runoff: conservatives win House majority for school choice | Eastern North Carolina Now

although RINO congressman and House speaker squeak through


School choice triumphed handily in Texas legislative GOP runoffs as anti-school choice RINOs went down to defeat in state House districts.  Governor Abbot only needed to flip one RINO incumbent to obtain a majority for school choice out of the eight challenged.  Preliminary results show that the governor and school choice forces defeated six of them.

House Speaker Dade Phelan had led the RINOs in backing the public school establishment against school choice, and he was one of the eight forced into runoffs.  Unfortunately he narrowly survived with a little over 50%.  With so many of his closest aliies taken out both in the first round and in the runoff, he may have lost his base to keep the Speaker's office, however.

Between the first round and the runoff, conservatives have ousted 14 RINOs who stood in the schoolhouse door against school choice.  Winning the House has been the key.  School choice has been a top agenda item for the governor, and has had a clear majority in the state senate.


In the other cloesly watched race, incumbent RINO Congressman Tony Gonzalez, who had been censured by the Texas Republican Party for his liberal votes, squeaked through with 51%

Government-run schools have gone downhill so far that it is good to see parents being given alternatives. Not only has quality gone to the dogs, but indoctrination is rampant for the woke agenda. Voters are waking up to the problem. Fixing the school boards to put in members who keep close control of their bureaucracies helps but giving parents the option to go outside the government-run schools is even better. More states need to jump on this bandwagon. HOORAY FOR TEXAS.

IT would appear that voters have had a bellyfull of the "woke" public school establishment. Not only are they voting out the go along / get along school board members all over the country, but they are now voting out state legislators who don't get it that the public is tired of business as usual with our flailing and woke schools.
