Official Endorsement: Steve Toth for Texas Senate
"When the righteous are in Authority, the people rejoice!"
Proverbs 29:2 (a)
In 2013, Former Texas Senate Finance committee chairman Tommy Williams shoved a budget down Texans' throats that increased spending by 26%. Later that year, he resigned under a cloud of corruption. The special election to replace him concludes August 5th.
In 2012, despite being wildly outspent, Steve Toth knocked off a Joe Straus lieutenant. This was a crucial victory in the war against Team Straus. In 2014, once again, Steve's opponent is a Joe Straus lieutenant.
As a member of the Texas House, Steve was a persistent thorn in Joe Straus' side. He was a reliable force for obstruction where the euphemism "getting something done" usually means something bad. Steve's endorsement list speaks for itself.
Steve was a leader in exposing CSCOPE, and remains committed to the ongoing game of Whack-a-mole. He understands the threat, even without expansion, that Medicaid poses to Texas' fiscal future. We first met Steve last summer, when he was handing out pizza to pro-lifers during the mayhem at the Capitol.
This is not to say Steve is perfect. While we appreciate his attention to the border situation, we think a lame-duck special session is dangerous. But that doesn't change the dynamic of this race.
One final note: Steve Toth understands the Old Testament. We cannot overemphasize how refreshing we find this. Considering the global economic uncertainty in our near future, we appreciate elected officials who are familiar with the Harbinger.
Early voting opens in two weeks. It's time to get serious. Cahnman's Musings unconditionally endorses Steve Toth for Texas Senate!!!
