The race for Lt. Governor is somewhat unique this year. We have a man who has the experience of serving Texas as a leader challenged by a bit of a lightweight.
Let’s explore positives that Lt. Governor Dewhurst brings to the table. He represents all of Texas, not just the Republicans. I appreciate that he permitted the Wendy Davis filibuster go to a more civilized natural closure. There are people who share Wendy’s beliefs and voted her into office. Should we silence the elected representatives of the minority? Isn’t the exact same situation currently transpiring in the United States Senate? The minority (Republicans) are being denied the right to debate on many issues. The approach by the Lt. governor shows a gracious fair-minded person who appreciates all Texans should have representation.
The Lt. Governor has shown he can work effectively with all groups of people. He wants the best results for the entire state. The use of effective collaboration is essential in a state as large as Texas. The challenges for such a large state are complex in nature.
Under the leadership of the Lt. Governor, we have seen a hard working Senate perform admirably. The budget is not all that gets done. This job requires a lot of attention to detail and a massive amount of planning. Bills are prioritized, committees meet, debate occurs, etc. There are thousands of bills put forward in the legislature each year. Under his leadership, it all runs smoothly, session after session. This doesn’t begin to cover his hundreds of meetings throughout the year outside the legislature when he sifts through issues and information.
David Dewhurst has put funding and hearings in place consistently regarding our border issues. I recently listened to a public hearing regarding the border. Good people of Texas testified and proposed ideas. Why didn’t you know about it? There are a great many efforts by this leader that go unnoticed. Why is that? He puts Texas first and does not use the position to promote himself.
This race is not about consistent votes in the Senate. It is about strong leadership, pure and simple. Year after year, the Lt. Governor has been an exemplary President of the Texas Senate.
The bottom line for me is that David Dewhurst puts Texas first. That matters, and hopefully will matter to all of you.
A vote for Lt. Governor David Dewhurst is a vote for Texas values!
