Dwayne Stovall, Texas candidate for U.S. Senate, is steadily gaining endorsements from Texas Tea Party groups and members as the 2014 Republican primary election approaches.
Stovall decisively beat Senator John Cornyn and others in the Nacogdoches County Republican Party Straw Poll in early December, and also just gained the endorsement of the Kaufman County Tea Party in the upcoming primary election.
“I’m humbled and grateful for the support in Nacogdoches County. As the word continues to spread across the great Lone Star State, our campaign to put Texas first proves to be winnable,” Stovall said in a press release. “Our message is simple: a senator from Texas serves as an ambassador for the state to Washington, and ought to represent the best interests of Texas. That is my aim – to win election and then serve Texas by ensuring that bills only receive a nod if it’s what is best for Texas. Unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case during Senator Cornyn’s two terms in office.”
U.S. Congressman Steve Stockman is still considered by most political analysts to be the leading challenger to Sen. Cornyn in the Republican primary, but Stovall’s gaining support recently caught the attention of National Review’s Betsy Woodruf, who recently penned an article on the primary race. Stovall, a native Texan & small business owner, says that he wants to fight alongside Senator Ted Cruz for smaller government, lower taxes, affordable energy, fair taxation, the repeal of Obamacare, & secure borders.
Cornyn, Stockman and Stovall are all hitting the campaign trail hard throughout the coming months, and will be visiting and speaking at many East Texas meetings and forums throughout the next few months. Remember, the primary election will be held on March 4, and early voting runs from February 18-28.
