OFFICIAL ENDORSEMENT: Mike van de Walle for HD-50
In the special election for HD-50, only one candidate opposes Medicaid expansion under Obamacare. His name is Dr. Mike van de Walle. Cahnman's Musings wholeheartedly endorses him. Early voting begins today. Election day proper is next Tuesday.
Medicaid bankrupts doctors and destroys lives. It's already on track to bankrupt Texas. Medicaid expansion is economic suicide.
Electing a state rep, in Travis County, who has campaigned against Obamacare and Medicaid expansion since day one will send a clear message to Texas' depressingly wobbly state legislature.
Special elections are strange; turnout is key. It sounds like a cliche, but who shows up at the polls determines who wins. The boundaries of HD-50 can be seen below:

One point of personal privilege: yesterday, we had the opportunity to experience Dr. van de Walle's professional services. A chiropractor with 40 years experience, Dr. van de Walle runs a well regarded office in Northwest Austin. Dr. van de Walle treated us for a compressed nerve that has bothered us for two months. 24 hours later, our symptoms have improved dramatically. Regardless of how this election ends, Cahnman's Musings strongly recommends De. van de Walle for your chiropractic needs.
Since September, we've gotten to know Dr. van de Walle. An affable political neophyte, Dr. van de Walle has proven himself a diligent learner. He's the only doctor we've ever seen with an open Bible in the waiting room. He's also the only candidate in this race opposed to Medicaid expansion under Obamacare. For that reason alone, Cahnman's Musings enthusiastically endorses Dr. Mike van de Walle for HD-50.
