He got 92% of the vote.
It’s a depressing situation. I predict everyday of the 88th legislative session to be a shit show. Voters need to be empowered to make a drastic change in voting house reps. All the incumbents need to go except the 6 who stood by Tinderholdt.
so, 78 “republicans” shouldn’t be allowed to run on the Republican ticket next primary, based on the following:
- Dade Phelan is categorically and specifically against one of the Republican Party’s 8 legislative priorities (democrat chairs).
- Dade Phelan (and Coke Hefner) campaigned against that priority during the convention period.
- Hence, any rep who voted for Dade Phelan voted AGAINST the Republican priorities and against the Republican voters.
Luckily, it seems Rep. Tinderholt is going to take the vote to the floor, meaning at least we'll know names. It's worth mentioning that a lot more than 6 Reps (incumbent and freshmen) ran on a no-Dem-chair platform.
I am one of the delegates who voted against appointing Democrats to chair committees and, yet, it is very evident that it does not matter to Phelan and his cohorts what "We, the People" of Texas want. It seems they will just do what they want regardless! My own representative, Cole Hefner, was very much trying to talk our people into voting for the Dems even though he knew we are against it! We are fighting every day against the evilness of what the Dems are doing to take our freedoms away, telling us what pronouns we must use, telling us we cannot say "Merry Christmas" and must say "Happy Holidays" so as not to offend anyone. Well, I am offended and most of all, God, my Heavenly Father, is offended above all! We bow down to the "woke" agenda, to the selling of our properties to China, giving our tax dollars to illegal aliens instead of to the needy veterans who fought for our freedoms, allowing illegal drugs to overtake the lives or our young, allowing human trafficking and all that goes with it, and everything else that goes against our Constitution and Godly principles! When will it stop!?! Evidently, we keep electing the Cole Hefners instead of those who run to fight against the wrongs being legislated in Austin! We must get through to our legislators what we want and find a way to make them do what we want to save our country!
Voting the incumbents OUT will require candidates to rise up in each district..... and good people to financially support these candidates because they will not be getting money from the lobbyists and establishment ...... just the reality. So those candidates and potential candidates need to get busy NOW during the 88th session and point out the incumbent's lack of support of Republican values and priorities
