Update – March 4, 2010: Texas’ Governor Rick Perry has been one of the most outspoken national voices critical of the Washington power grabs. So what does Texas Senator K. Baily Hutchison do? She runs against him. The conservative-lite Hutchison decided that Texas no longer needed a strong voice in their Governor’s mansion.
Texas Republicans disagreed. Yeah Texas! Governor Perry trounced Senator Hutchison on Tuesday by a 52 percent to 30 percent margin. I used to have great respect for Ms. Hutchison, but I am tired of conservatives going after other conservatives while letting RHINOs alone. Hopefully another real conservative will challenge Senator Hutchison when she wants another term in the U.S. Senate.
As you would expect from the Texas Governor, he accepted the nomination with an understated speech to his supporters:
“It is clear that the Obama administration and its allies has Texas in its crosshairs. Bring it on!”
“Texas voters said no to Washington bureaucrats … and yes to leadership that controls spending, fights for individual freedoms and the United States Constitution. Hardworking Texans sent a simple, compelling message to Washington: Quit spending all the money!”
“Stop messing with Texas!”
“Conservatism has never been stronger than it is today. And we’re taking our country back, one vote at a time, one election at a time”
We need to carry his momentum into the rest of the primaries and through the November elections. I look forward to more from the Great State of Texas.
