Texans Should Keep David Dewhurst as Lt. Governor

 

In the race for Texas Lieutenant Governor, there are four worthy choices, but only one candidate with a clear-cut history of ably working on behalf of Texans at the highest level with legislators from all over the state, each with their conflicting priorities, while simultaneously managing to largely rein in and neutralize the Democrat agenda.

He has demonstrated some impressive leadership during his time as Lt. Gov., working with legislators to help bring about the “Texas Miracle” which has led to Texas being the reason that America remains afloat during the ongoing dark, dreadful years of the Obama regime.

Don’t get me wrong; Dewhurst is just one man in a crowded, qualified and competent field. Jerry Patterson is as Conservative as the Texas summer is hot, Todd Staples has the enthusiasm and energy needed in a leader with a very bright future ahead of him, and Dan Patrick has the ability to effectively communicate a message that gets the committed party faithful and activist grassroots up out of their seats.

Each of these men could very well be a viable choice in any other year. But I agree with my friend, Big Jolly that this year none of them is able to say without a shadow of a doubt that Texas would have been better off if they’d wielded the gavel. They’ve even been unable to persuade Texans that the state would be stronger and better if they were to preside from the rostrum in Dewhurst’s place. Dewhurst also represents the best opportunity and strongest candidacy to defeat Democrat Senator Leticia Van de Putte in her effort to attain the Lieutenant Governorship.

Dewhurst is a proven commodity and an effective and able leader. He’s earned the chance to keep doing his job.
