Tea Party Candidate Shakes Up Texas Race

Debra Medina, who identifies with the tea party movement, has disrupted the race between Gov. Rick Perry and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. According to an article by NPR, after a late January debate with Perry and Hutchison, Ms. Medina's poll numbers went upward. Afterward Ms. Medina appeared as a guest on Glenn Beck's syndicated radio show where Beck asked her whether she believed the U.S. government had any involvement in the 911 terrorist attacks.

She answered, "I don't have all of the evidence there, Glenn," and continued, "I think some very good questions have been raised in that regard." Immediately thereafter, Medina released a statement clarifying her belief that the U.S. government was not involved, but still, it has seemed to affect public support for her campaign.

Now you have to take into account this is NPR's (National Liberal Radio) take, I personally did not hear the radio show.  To me her initial answer sounds like a rehersed answer to a question that you are not sure how to answer, and everyone makes mistakes.  I hope this  is not one that crushes her political career.  I have heard her interviewed by others since then.  Her platform is much like that of Ron Paul who won the presidential straw poll at CPAC. I hope she is given another chance, but I fear that the Liberal media will harp on this at least until after the primary.  To read the NPR article go here.

This is probably not the best article to use to get my point across; however, tomorrow Texas is holding the Republican Primary for governor.  Now, I will state right off the bat, that I do not live in Texas, but what happens in Texas affects the whole country.  Currently, whatever textbooks the State of Texas public schools use, are used by the rest of the country.  I just want to implore those who can vote in this primary to do so.  I do not know if Democrats or Independents can vote in the Republican Primary, I will have to do a little more research on the subject. Vote your conscience, not for Mr. Popular.  This morning I heard an interview with Ms. Debra Medina that was very interesting.  Even though according to this article she is in last place but starting to take votes from Hutchinson, her platform resembles Ron Paul's.  I just found an article from NPR that states that "Medina shakes up Republican Primary." I will post this article as well. To see the entire Rasmussen Report article go here.
