Ron Paul Wins In Texas
March 5th, 2008 by Patrick Semmens

Those of us here at the presidential campaign want to congratulate Dr. Paul and his congressional campaign staff on their overwhelming win in his TX-14 primary last night. (Congressman Paul won with over 70 percent of the vote.)

The citizens of Texas’ 14th congressional district know Ron Paul better than anyone else, and they made a strong statement last night that they want him to continue fighting for freedom in Washington, DC.

Responding to the win, Dr. Paul made the following remarks:

I am honored that the voters in the 14th District expressed their continued confidence in my leadership by overwhelmingly reelecting me to the House of Representatives. I have no Democrat opponent in November and will serve another term in Congress where I will continue my battle in behalf of taxpayers.

My message of limited-government and upholding the Constitution has once again been endorsed by the conservative-minded voters in my district. They understand and support the battle I have waged for thirty years to make the federal government smaller, to reduce wasteful government spending, to balance the budget, and to promote a foreign policy that always puts America first.

Some Washington insiders would have you believe that Republicans no longer believe in the principles our country and party were founded upon, but the voters in my district have once again proven them wrong.

The message of freedom is popular, and I will continue to trumpet it in Congress and across America as I fight on behalf of the conservative, common sense values which made our country so great.

In conclusion, I would like to offer my thanks and gratitude to all of the wonderful people who supported me in this campaign. I look forward to representing all of the good people of the 14th District of Texas in Congress in the years to come.

55% of Texans disapprove of Bush and 61% disapprove of the war in Iraq – according to a recent ‘poll’ by CNN.

But at the same time, CNN’s ‘poll’ claims that Texans would rather vote for McCain than Obama or Clinton – who claim to be against the war.

But in addition to this, the poll said that 19% of Texans are willing to vote for a third-party candidate. Though this is not explicit – this most likely translates to Ron Paul votes.

In case you don’t already know, Ron Paul is the most anti-war candidate who in this election (even from the start), and is a 10 term Representative from Texas. Apparently, he’s ‘unelectable’. Why?

Is this not another fine example of how CNN will exclude Ron Paul even from the possibilities?

CNN poll: Texans leaning toward McCain in November: The poll interviewed 1,506 adults in Texas, including 1,247 registered voters, by telephone February 14-17. The sampling error on election questions is plus or minus 3 percentage points, and plus or minus 2.5 percentage points on questions dealing with Bush, Iraq and the economy.
