Here is a message from our good friend Cathie Adams who is running for the RNC at the June RPT Convention in Houston

Cathie Adams Receives Key Endorsements from Texas Conservative Grassroots Leaders in race for Republican National Committeewoman (RNC).

Dallas – Earlier today Texas Eagle Forum President Cathie Adams released the first list of key endorsements for her election as the Republican National Committeewoman for Texas.

The RNC is made up of one woman and one man from each state. Adams is running to fill a seat that will be vacated due to a term limits.

Endorsements for the Republican Primary

Early voting has started and the polls are open today until 7p and tomorrow, Sunday, until 6p. Early voting ends on Friday Feb 29th. Turnout has almost doubled in the Republican primary due to increased attention from the presidential candidates.

There are several contested races on the ballot and now is the time for us to select our Republican nominees for November. We should not settle and we should not hold our nose and vote for the lesser of two evils. We need to elect Republicans to office who share our conservative values.

That being said, I recommend the following candidates to you for your consideration when you go to the polls, the most important thing being that you vote:

U.S President

Alan Keyes

U.S. Congress

CD 14 - Chris Peden - (All of Galveston County except Santa Fe/Hitchcock, all of Brazoria County except Pearland)

CD 22 - Robert Talton - (Santa Fe, Hitchcock, The sections of League city north of the creek, Pearland, Clear Lake, Sugar Land)
This race has 10 candidates and there will probably be a runoff in April.

Galveston County Sheriff

Chief J.L. Campbell

State Representative

#129 - Jon Keeney - Clear Lake

#29 - Randy Weber - Brazoria/Matagorda Counties

Brazoria County Sheriff

Chief Mike Merkel
