Negative campaigning ain’t anything new or rare, but the race for Travis County Judge is getting unnecessarily nasty. Sarah Eckhardt and her supporters have launched a strange crusade against Andy Brown. It is a sad sight since both are great Democrats with a lot to offer our community.
5. Mocking the Opponent — “Untested Rookie”
The mudslinging against Brown is straight-up mean. One supporter made fun of his tagline, while she recently sent out a mail piece dismissing Brown as an “untested rookie.”
The next Governor of Texas can’t take over the mansion alone. She’s gonna need all hands on deck, y’all. Here are four easy ways to be part of the effort.

Do it now. Do it before midnight today. Abbott has been raising money for years, so we are gonna need to fill in the gap in order to be competitive this cycle. Consider it an investment in Texas’ future and, more importantly, your future.
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s recent assertion that “I go into the office, I sue the federal government and I go home” did not stop him from teaming up with Obama and his liberal lackey Eric Holder earlier this year in opposing free enterprise by attempting to stop a merger involving American Airlines, a company that is headquartered in Fort Worth and employs tens of thousands of Texans.
Had Abbott and Obama succeeded in stifling private business, many Texans may have lost their jobs.
Where else are Obama and Abbott on the same team? Does Abbott support the overbearing and socialist Obamacare law?
Abbott says he sued Obama’s federal government 25 times, but admits defeat in eight cases. He claims to have five “wins”, but 5-25 is nowhere near the winning record that Texans deserve. Abbott also owned up to simply dismissing four cases. Real Texans do not give into Obama’s overreaches. Considering that Antonin Scalia and other strong conservatives lead the Supreme Court, Abbott’s losing record against Obama is appalling.
Is Abbott even trying?
How can Abbott ask Texas voters to support him while he abandons Texans in their fight for freedom against Obama?
Dear wise Texas Latina,
I hope you are as excited as I am about Wendy’s fight to take back the Governor’s Mansion. She has the energy, reputation and talent to take our state back and guide it into a new era of progressive leadership for Texas families.
In order to win, however, Wendy will need a full ticket from Justice of the Peace to US Senator. Talented candidates don’t grow on trees, y’all. If you have ever even flirted with the fantasy of running for public office, now is the time to give it serious thought. Here’s are five reasons why I’m right.
