Hat Tip to TBSE for today’s excellent Voter information and links~


Vote Early Started Yesterday! State Board of Ed Races’ Recommendations PLUS Links to Excellent Voter Guides Below 
(check with your county clerk for details) 

By Frank Mayo

Recently TBSE wrote about our research on voting records of the RINOs on the State Board of Education (SBOE) who voted with the Democrats up to 100% of the time. Readers are now clear that we need to take action to make sure we are voting for conservatives and not RINO imposters. Our list of solid conservative candidates is given below, and below the table are some great links for statewide and local race voter guides from organizations that we know and trust.

Due to redistricting some are still confused about the new districts. District boundaries have changed much so you cannot just assume that you are in the same district as before. For example SBOE representative Barbara Cargill’s new district boundaries now include the far west and the far east parts of Harris County as well as a group of counties north of Houston. (The new map has her district, previously not even including Harris county, with “earmuffs” on the sides of Harris county.) Things like that are definitely confusing! Similar situations exist near all major cities. So it is important to look up your district from your street address, districts by address here.

By the way, Mrs. Cargill is the current Chair of the SBOE and she has done an excellent job guiding the SBOE towards a consensus that results in action by the Board and not the gridlock that we have often seen in the US Congress. If only Congressional leaders would take lessons from Barbara Cargill! People in Harris County need to take careful notice to see which new district, 4, 6, or 8 now includes their address.

Special note to those of you in San Antonio:  The most important people in the legislature are the lieutenant Governor and the Speaker of the House because they choose who is assigned to the committees and appoints their chairs. Unfortunately current Speaker Joe Straus’ last YCT rating was a paltry 67%–he is not a pro-life conservative, (his wife was on the Board of Planned Parenthood and he was even given an award by them for his “tireless efforts”), and he has been supported by pro-gambling interests.  He even won the speaker’s race by joining with the left, not conservatives, and actively thwarted many conservative issues at the last session. Last, the redistricting he sent to the Governor rewarded his cronies and penalized conservative critics harshly.  That is why it was hard for conservatives to get much done in the 82ndlegislature even with a large majority. If that happens again all conservative efforts in the legislature are in trouble. Fortunately, in District 121 conservatives have an able challenger in Matt Beebe,  website, who would be a much more distinctly conservative choice that the unreliable Straus.  Make no mistake about it.  This primary election in district 121 is the chance that Tea Party and other conservatives have for stopping this speaker.  If he wins the primary he will win the general election in November and will be too powerful to not get the speakership again. Please actively encourage your friends, family and church family to campaign for and vote for Matt Beebe!

Additionally, note that many counties have local review groups, such as the ones listed below for Harris and Montgomery counties, that often include local judge and other local races.  If your county has a similar conservative group, please let us know about it!

Special note:  There is a real “David and Goliath” battle for the US Congress district 8 seat.  The incumbent Goliath is thought be many to have become too entrenched and too “big government”, though he remains conservative on some issues.  The solid conservative “David” challenger is Larry Youngblood, running on a lower taxes, smaller government, socially conservative platform.  Please seriously consider voting for new blood in Congress, Larry Youngblood, even if you do not personally know him well. http://www.larryyoungblood4congress.com/ 

PS:  Importantly, also note that due to the abysmally low turnout typical of primary elections, your one vote in the primary is as strong as 50 or more votes in the general election!  Please exercise it!   


As we enter this important election year, our voices must unite in defense of preborn American citizens who cannot defend themselves.
