    I’m so grateful to the author. I’m going to share it and hope it goes viral. It’s a great outline of reasons that people SHOULD vote for him.

    Sending this to Dems everywhere, urging contributions. Thanks!

    He is being touted as the next John Kennedy. If you listen to John Kennedy’s speeches from the past you would think that he was a conservative republican. Beto is not good for Texas. If you take a look at who is financing his campaign it will tell you everything you need to know about him.

    He also was one of only a handful who voted against our Iron Dome mutual project with Israel. He must be defeated.
