It's Time to Adopt the Mack Penny Plan

By Henry Graebe, 08/16/12

One of the freshest and most popular ideas that has been put forth this election cycle is the Mack Penny Plan. The Plan, which is original, simple, and sound, was created and introduced by Congressman Connie Mack, who recently won his party’s Senate nomination on August 14. Mack will now challenge incumbent Senator Bill Nelson in the crucial swing-state of Florida on November 6. FreedomWorks for America has proudly endorsed Connie Mack, a principled candidate who supports a constitutionally-limited government.

Dubious Dewhurst Strikes Again!

By Vinny Kalkofen, 07/12/12

David Dewhurst’s major argument against Ted Cruz is his supposed ties with China. First off, these are not at all true just a poorly thought out attack from someone who is down in the polls, according to a recent Politico article

Mr. Dewhurst conveniently failed to mention his own link to the Chinese government.  In 1996, before becoming  Lt. Governor, Dewhurst founded a Houston-based Falcon Seaboard Resources, which was then purchased by Cal Energy.

Dewhurst Campaign Consultants and the Missing Amnesty Speech

By Kemberlee Kaye, 07/11/12

Cruz Responds to Texas GOP Criticism

By Meghan Feely, 07/11/12

David Dewhurst has once again refused to defend his own record and has instead relied on countless others to paint him as a devout Constitutional conservative, despite the pesky facts. Unfortunately for Dewhurst, the truth always has a way of rearing its ugly head.  In fact, recent polling coming out in favor of Cruz suggests that the truth can also really hurt come campaign season, especially in the absence of any legitimate attempts by Dewhurst to refute it.

Dewhurst Refuses to Debate

By Saul Mendoza, 07/11/12

It seems like David Dewhurst is back to his old ways of thinking that he is above the grassroots. After skipping so many Tea Party meetings and straw polls and refusing to debate the rest of the candidates for US Senate, Dewhurst is at it again. Dewhurst promised to debate at Ted Cruz after the primary when both he and Ted made it to the runoff yet it seems that this promise was made with no intent of being kept as we have only had one debate between Cruz and Dewhurst that has been aired on television.

Dewhurst Campaign Engages in Misleading Social Media

By Kemberlee Kaye, 06/30/12

 

While browsing through my Twitter feed yesterday, I noticed an account that I didn't recognize. Since I follow the Texas Senate race quite closely I'm familiar with all the major players. Naturally, I assumed this account was some sort of apolitical feed dedicated to keeping this contentious race honest. With a name like "TXSen Fact Checker" why wouldn't it be neutral?

Cruz Pledged To Repeal Obama Care, Dewhurst Has Not

By Jordan Grenadier, 06/28/12

If the Supreme Court’s ruling on the constitutionality of Obama Care today has taught us anything, it is that we need strong conservatives in Congress that will work to repeal this piece of legislation. Ted Cruz has actively campaigned that he will repeal every word of the bill, but where does David Dewhurst stand?

Dewhurst Continues to Play More Political Games

By Saul Mendoza, 06/20/12

Lt. Governor David Dewhurst’s campaign released a video today labeling Ted Cruz as the “DC PAC Man.” In their video the campaign illustrates a version of the classic arcade game, Pac-Man, but rather than the yellow pac-dot munching circle we see the head of Ted Cruz running around the familiar maze. As Ted’s face progresses it eats the logos of all the PACs that have helped aid his campaign such as that of Club for Growth and FreedomWorks.
